A Sheet Cake, A Shower Curtain, and A Dildo Walk Onto Set...


Week six is in the books! We had such a blast this week on set. We're really getting into a rhythm with our process and this has kept things moving along nicely.

We planned for nine scenes with a total of nine pages. We managed to get everything done in just under eight hours.

So fortunate to have artistic talents of Cinematographer Meleta McHarlin on this project. Here she grabs focus for a take.

This opened up a block of time to shoot some pickups and a coverage portion of a scene that we have yet to film.


Kevin does it all. He arrived early to set, jumped in and held diffusion for a take.

Our second to last day of shooting (coming up in two weeks) is a real beast. Our most ambitious day of the entire shoot. Since we had the extra time on day six, we decided to shoot a portion of one of the scenes for that day in order to save us a couple of pages worth of shooting on that day.

The scene involves the entire cast. However, Liz (Lindsay's character) and Chase (Kevin's character) are standing off against the rest of the cast on the opposite side of the room. So we shot their portion of the scene.

The scene involves an awkward struggle with a shower curtain and a large, floppy dildo wielded by Kevin's character.

Both Lindsay and Kevin were cracking each other up all evening. We got great stuff for the blooper/gag reel, and even better stuff for the final product!

Lindsay finally got to display her comedic talents! Her character is generally very serious. But in the shower curtain/dildo scene she gets to let her comedic flag fly!

One more week of shooting in the house before we move back out to the garage for the blood and gore final scene. I'm already stressing about it, but can't wait to shoot it!


See you next week!
