So this week I began filming. The location I ended up using was: Sylvania Waters, Kurnell and suburban streets around the shire.
Here are some of the shots
The filming was very straight forward and only took 2 hours (including 30 minutes of lunch). The concept for this part was simple: A man in a hurry running home to only just turn the microwave off. This meant a lot of improvising for these parts. My actor Mitchell made some great suggestions that I didn’t even think of at first; Climbing a fence, a shot of him jumping over me and himself vomiting while he’s running. He also made his running style very humorous as it’s sloppy.
The day we chose to film happened to be a very hot day, and most of the scenes involved frantic running, so we did experience difficulty in the heat with the filming, however, we did have bottles of ice cold water to help us throughout.
Next week I will begin editing this footage so it is ready for foley work to be done.
