Behind the Scenes: Scene #73

Here are a few photos from our latest day of production, all taken by Pete Springer. The first scene is a casual conversation between Lou (Marshall Lee) and his court ordered therapist (Bill Wilson).



Lights, cameras…

Our equipment is rented, our locations are mostly set, our cast and crew have received their first call sheet, and our fingers crossed for some decent (ie: not too sunny, not too rainy) weather tomorrow. Keep an eye out, because we should have the rough cut of the opening title sequence uploaded here in a couple days, and then we’re taking a break while our Kickstarter and other fundraising efforts wrap up and we develop characters and plot points with our actors.

If you’re in the mood to pitch in a little cash to help our little do-it-ourselves indie flick, click on the link above. $5 or $5,000 — any amount helps and there are incentives for any price range. Also, we’re constantly on the look out for musicians, locations, interesting eccentrics, and local businesses. The script is designed to allow us a lot of flexibility, so if you’re interested in getting a little bit of inexpensive exposure for yourself or your business, shoot us an email at thebuskersandloumovie@gmail.com.

On that note, my alarm is set for 6 AM and I’m going to close my eyes for a bit and try hard to not to think about scheduling, budgeting, props, set dressing, locations, wardrobe, makeup, cameras, lights, audio gear, actors, transportation, permits, or craft services for a couple of hours…
