Okay, here’s the skinny.
When I started planning my recent holiday to Portland, my buddy, Jake Merriman floated the idea of me filming a short scene that he and his scene partner, Sarah McGregor had been working for the past several months. Given that I hadn’t shot anything for a while, it sounded like something I could do for practice.
We budgeted for a four and half hour shoot. But thanks to me making a detailed shot list and Jake and Sarah having the material down so cold, nearby onlookers could have gotten frostbite, we were done in under two.
The initial edit took about 45 minutes. Color Grading was done in Union Station in Portland and the sound mix was done while traveling to Klamath Falls on the Coast Starlight. I will leave it to your tender mercies to decide if this is a good thing or bad.
