Day 7, August 4th
We shot three scenes tonight, 17, 18 and 19. We started with scene 19, and used a crane for some amazing camerawork. We needed time to set-up, but once we finished, we started filming with Debbie Rochon and the scene turn out beautiful.
Scene 17 was another fight scene between the dog-soldier (Giuseppe Gobbato) and Liza (Tara Cardinal). I shot this scene using only the hand-held camera, and it worked out very well. With respect to my previous movies, I'm using more hand-held camerawork in this movie, because I want to convey tension to the audience and help them to better feel the emotions of the characters.
Scene 18 was a dialogue scene. There's a very intense confrontation between Tiffany Shepis and Debbie Rochon, both are great actresses, and the scene was amazing. We had a fun moment when Debbie spit blood on Tiffany’s face, and we had a lot of laughs shooting the prisoner, Larry (Domiziano Arcangeli), who started the scene by peeing in a bucket in his cell. We finished at 6:00 am, but we finished everything on the program, so I'm very happy!
