Getting ready to possibly shoot in Hope Town Bahamas. Would love to hear from anyone who has shot on that island. I understand part of Casino Royale was shot there so if anybody here worked on that please contact me.
Thanks in advance.

Funny. I'll be doing a movie in Freeport soon. When will you be there? I'm leaving around June 20th. What are you shooting?

Hi Brad
I'm actually down here in the Bahamas right now scouting. We want to shoot on Elbow Cay in Hope Town which is extremely picturesque but also very challenging as there are no roads in the township. Looks like we're barging in the generator and grip & lighting from Miami then flying our camera package in. We'll be shooting the last week of June as well. It's an episode of the ABC comedy "Scrubs" .
Good luck on your shoot.

Sounds like a challenge! Looks like a great location from the pictures I just looked at.
Is Rich Davis going down with you?
Looks like we're pushing till the 30th, so I may be asking you for tips before I go down.

Flew over Freeport on the way back home today and it seems like a pretty developed island. I know you're a steadicam operator so just one warning; it's crazy humid down there. You start pouring sweat just standing still sometimes. And yeah, Rich Davis is definitely coming. Rich is an amazing steadicam op who has saved my ass more times than I can count. Have fun!

Agreed about Rich. He's a heck of a nice guy as well.
I'm originally from FL, so I'm well aware of the humidity. It will take some getting used to though after having lived in CA for 6 years. I'm curious how the Red will handle the humidity, heat, sand and salt water.
Judging by the bank hours I think I'll bring plenty of cash! Funny, their bank hours are almost exactly opposite of some features!
