We’re Descending…

…on our final approach. This past weekend went exceedingly well, which means our six days are now down to four. My cast and crew may want to kill me for this (or something else, already) but it feels like we’re finally locked in all the way. To be fair, the learning curve was enormously huge and always changing, and the constant threat of coming up short was always there. Not anymore. Of course, conditions were perfect for us to run around and get what we needed as the hotel was, at last, moderately busy. There was only one wedding, by my count, and Philcon 2011 saw a manageable amount of space traveler traffic. Still, to think that most of us hadn’t laid eyes on each other before the first shoot in March is mind-boggling. As it stands, we’re crossing off the shot list with assured and certain speed, and the stuff looks amazing.

Now we break for that big eating and sleeping holiday before we reconvene at our home away from home on the 3rd of December. It’ll be another two-day session, with stuff that requires a little more complexity than last weekend’s material. However, since rewriting a number of scenes to keep us at one location, I reckon we’ve saved ourselves a lot of time and aggravation. I also feel the energy increasing as the light at the end of the tunnel grows larger and more intense, so that’s good. Real, real good.

As always, there are stills on the Facebook Page. You’ll see a couple of new faces in there (stairwell/hotel desk), and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their time, effort and enthusiasm. They did an awesome job.
