Me and my indie film
Posted 01 October 2010 - 04:34 PM
It's a fantasy movie, and we're going to be taping on HD in the Sierra Nevada, in the snow. I'm blessed to have some amazingly talented and dedicated up-and-coming actors on this voyage.
The thing that concerns me most is of course, shooting in the winter in the snow. Days will be short (although we're in California), the weather and lighting will be unpredictable and of course I expect the cast and crew to be cold and miserable.
But it will be glorious.

I agree about amateur sound; I hear this a lot on local TV commercials. We'll have to do some Foley, We may re-record dialog in studio, although I prefer live. And I have some classical music to cut up for the score. Thanks!

Our hero does combat with a pair of giants, played by one normal sized actor. We have a size double to play the hero to make the giants look big. We'll do a reverse shot or two in order to show the actual hero actor. It's also against a green screen, and we'll add a snowy background later. I don't want to just make the background white, since the color of snow varies slightly with light and the angle. Then we'll add some snowflakes to tie everything together.
So, yes, a screen test is essential in this case, I think.
