There was an odd bit of luck that ran through today that happened long before we started shooting. Some Islanders may (or may not, I guess) recognize Tim Gormley here, who went above and beyond the call of duty for this.
Upon doing that, and actually moving the original actor from his character to another role (who also) dropped out eventually anyway, Tim expressed interest again after seeing we were shortening the project and this look is what he came up with and since today was his only day out for us, I had to give him the "Line of the Day", and here it is:
John and Mary as Bo and Roxxy.
And some rednecks, Tim Gormley, Tim Wartman and Mark Wells as Luke, Roscoe and Cletus.
We needed a zombie for the shoot and there were some minor issues with our originally scheduled actor so we found a replacement, however since he was used before in a scene that takes place nearly opposite this one I decided to use an old silicone mask on him. It's not perfect by any means, but I like the weird clunkiness of it.
And he's gone.
And as I said, far from perfect, however it was easy to get him ready and clean him up.
Yeah, that my girlfriend.
There's something pretty messed up looking with the hollow, slightly bloodied head just lying there.
I had to remake the "axe in the arm" prop for Tim W., this one worked a little better anyway. I also remade the fake sledgehammer and gave it to Mark this time around.
But it's the same arm as last year. I tried to clean it up a bit.
And finally the bimbos, Jobeth and Ginger played by Ancelene MacKinnon and Julia MacDougall.
Tim usually has to play with all the props at some point.
End of the day cast.
After the girls were free to take off we had a couple quick shots with the Rednecks to finish off the day.
And that was it. Overall a good day, we shot all we planned to. As I said it ran a little longer than planned, but we did get off to a late start as well. The footage looks good, pretty happy with it. And now onto the next shoot.
