As I wrangle up the sound team and give them shot fragments (in order that they can begin collecting Foley and SFX,) I've taken to editing completed scenes into shorter clips for reference. Some of these, I'm planning on posting over the next few weeks. So check in often, as snippets should pop up throughout the end of April and May until the completion of principal photography.

Just to give everyone an idea of what's going on in the studio, I'm posting this image of Chuck (taken less than an hour ago,) as he "performs" a frame for shot number-thirty-something-or-other. Please take advantage of the large image file and expand by clicking on it, making it easier to notice the following: Chuck's raising the ladder attached to a c-stand to achieve a motion blur effect (go-motion,) while his right toe (sheathed in a stylish striped sock,) is poised above a make-shift shutter release to capture the shot. All this after setting up Mawk in a basket dangling from rope and a baby bird (not currently in frame) on monofilament.
Reminds me of a one-man-band circa 1930.

We've been at it.
Tearing through scenes and knocking back frames. Our May 30th deadline is a breath away, but we're ready. We are pushing ahead.
*keep an eye on the 'frames shot' and 'scenes completed' counter on the right side. I'm about to do a long awaited update and it will blow your mind.
