Kill Giggles pt. 19

Asheboro Flashbacks part 2

We began in the suburbs of Greensboro with a flash back of teenage Tommy (Jordan Blake) coming face to face with his greatest tragedy in the form of Bill (Tom Gore) at his Aunt’s (Tracey de Leon) home.

This was a great emotionally charged scene that was a lot of fun to shoot. The location was fantastic. Love the details of the older style homes. Very nice for the camera. I just wanted the look of everything being lit by the daylight pouring in through the windows.

It looked great no matter where you positioned the cameras.

We grabbed at the bottom of the steps to cover the entrance and exit of teenage Tommy which bookends the scene.

Next was a company move back to Asheboro where we began with a little robbing of the old liquor store (convenience store). I was pretty much on the fig rig for the rest of the day.

Followed by downing it (water) all while power walking the streets in broad daylight. Tommy was always a badass.

We ended the day with a scene of teenage Tommy continuing his aimless wandering until he happens upon a small theater (same theater we used with Felissa Rose) that of course yields in tragedy that we’ll discuss in the next installment.

Originally we were planning on doing a long take of Tommy approaching the theater back entrance.

I ended up cutting the bulk of it out because of timing and ended up piecing parts of it together with fades in and out of black. It’s a flashback and the tail end of a montage so the fades worked out just fine.

It was a long day and we finally got through. Time to go rinse wash repeat…
