Kill Giggles pt. 20

last day of Asheboro flashbacks

We were back in Asheboro for the final time & once again found ourselves using the same theater location that we used the exterior of previously.

The space was impressive and we had plenty of time to set up. We used theater’s lights along with our own for a great look.

The scene involves a rehearsal for a clown laden musical production that goes very poorly. The director (C. Michael Whaley) leaves in a huff while the clowns (Matt Patterson, John Mazza and Christy Johnson) deliberate.

A & B Cameras were placed on the upper and lower levels for the wides and then we moved in for coverage.

The dialog coverage was followed by the entrance of teenage Tommy bringing his own brand of clown punishment. This needed to be blocked meticulously due to the fact that things can go wrong. Safety is all important.

The continuation of this pivotal scene involving a stabbing and a shooting needed to be rehearsed carefully.

We used a retractable blade and a billet hit was added in post. Jordan Blake and Tom Gore did a fantastic job.

The performances were realistic and well played.

We finished the sequence with close ups. “Don’t breathe Tom. Don’t breathe.”

For the Martini shot (final shot of the day), Dalton Pope broke out his drone and we got some great stuff.

We ended the day and we were done…

…until the next day.
