Today was I guess what you'd call 2nd Unit kind of stuff. Just some quick cutaway shots that didn't even require prosthetic makeup or anything - since you never see the Beast's face until the confrontation at the end. It was also to get Kim Bradford used to using the camera - although it was pretty hurried so I'm sure how used to it she got.
Overall it was relatively painless, although the costume was really heavy, cumbersome and warm. I felt a little rushed because the forecast was pretty damned sure it'd be cloudy and raining by 1 pm...it's almost 8 pm and it's been a blue sky since near 2 pm and not one drop of rain.
In any case, here's some pictures and whatnot from the day.
Getting suited up.
The super awesome Green Demon Blood (tm)
Stills from the footage
If the weather holds we'll be shooting the remainder of this scene, the actual fight, on this coming Wednesday. And as much as I'm looking forward to it, I'm really dreading the makeup and the costume.
