I spent this weekend on the set of the feature film “11:11,” micro-blogging from Twitter and observing. As you can see from the picture above, I also wore a few other hats this weekend, mainly PA and Videographer for a few hours Sunday morning. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever been behind a camera, and it was a great experience. Also, I am more sore and tired than I’ve been in a long time, standing and moving around on set for two 11 hour days is exhausting. I have to give a shout-out to the grips, gaffers and PA’s on this set who hustled and kicked serious butt. When there was a new setup called for, they jumped all over it and I didn’t hear anyone complaining.
I spent some time with Vince (above, right, behind Director Rocky Costanzo), who’s capturing all the footage from the cameras onto hard drives and importing them right into Final Cut Pro, labeling the scenes, and organizing them for the edit. I’ve asked him for copies of the footage on disc each week so that I can start writing temp music for Rocky to edit to. I should have the stuff we shot this weekend by the middle of the week, which works well since this week I start writing the score.
There’s me talking to people on Twitter from the set. If you’re intested in asking questions about the production, add me on Twitter and follow along next weekend when I’m on location again Saturday and Sunday. Things are still moving along well with Wonderview, and I received exciting news about a short I scored last year that’s being turned into a feature. I can divulge any details right now, but when I can you’ll be the first to know. I have more to say, but it’s going to have to wait until I’m not tired and about to crash.
