SUBMARINE UPDATE 7/31/12

We had a great shoot last night with a great friend Len Wehrung. We first met Len last year on an industrial shoot for Kaiser Aluminum (he was assisting photographer Drew Donovan.) Some people you instantly bond with - and that was certainly true with this group, and we all became fast friends on that shoot.

A year later, we were all on another shoot for Kaiser, and John and I thought Len would be great for this role of a crew member aboard a deep sea research vessel... and he was.

It's always nice to make films with friends. In this pic, John Lansch adjusts the boom mic for Len. And if you look closely at the camera, you can see Deke Anderson's headshot being used as a matte box.

EDITING UPDATE

Up to page 48 is edited... very excited! Moving at a good pace now, and have some really nice scenes. Gonna try to cut one more scene to day and bring us up to page 51.

EDITING

Spent the day editing... so far, the film is cut up to page 21, with the exception of one small scene. The challenge is that there is so much great footage, and long takes, so it takes a little while to sort - but it's a good problem to have.

This shot is the calm before the storm - all hell is about to break loose.

GREEN SCREEN AND WATER DON'T MIX


So, we setup a quick test to see how water elements would key out against a green and blue screen. In the shot above, John Lansch sets up the extremely high tech green screen rig using... pool chairs.

The green didn't work at all... too much spill onto the water. Surprisingly, the blue screen worked better, but it's so close to the water color that it leaves little room for getting a nice clean key. Here is a quick composite that I'm not really happy with.


I'll have to play around with some advanced soft key methods, or come up with a different shot altogether.
