Kill Giggles pt. 21

The dinner scene with Eden and her movie star Mom, Deborah de Prima (Judith O’dea/“Night of the Living Dead”) represents the quiet before the storm in a production sense.

The scene is simple enough, dialog with mainly two people with a brief exchange in the beginning with a fan (Denny Nolan) of de Prima.

Me and Jason Ledford agreed to go with nice soft overhead lighting that had served us so well on this shoot so far. After he and his crew were done, the set looked amazing.

The shots were a wide followed by medium ots (over the shoulder) shots. We got a little additional footage from B cam courtesy of Dalton Pope.

So funny story. It was still daylight when we began shooting and then turned dark when we were in our second setup. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t considered the sunset. I was used to setting up dinner scenes away from windows when stressed on time. Needless to say we had to shoot the wide again. No big deal.

After the second go on the wide we were done for the day and looking forward to being almost at the finish line.

Little did we realize how grueling that last day would be.
