Episode #14 shoot
Well, we shot from midnight to 6am for this last one, and boy was that exhausting! We were lucky enough to have the use of lovely local restaurant St. Clouds, in Madrona. John Platt, the owner, was very nice in letting us use the space, and I am happy to report that all actors and crew were respectful and we managed to leave the place in just the condition we found it. There were some fun things. We had extras for the scene, which we almost never do, and it was fun to meet new people and introduce them to the show. We shot from the outside of the restaurant, in the middle of the street, and we didn't have a permit. A police car drove by and we thought they were gonna ask us to leave but instead they just asked "what are you filming? where can I watch it?" So that was pretty funny. And we are still getting used to our new equipment acquisition, the camera dolly. Only ended up using it once in this episode but we're learning. I realized as we were shooting just how much dialogue and how little physical action this one has, but I have to say that now that it's all cut together, it plays well, I think. I know viewers have been waiting patiently for the arrogant Jim Sullivan get his comeuppance. Hope you like it!
