We’re just days out from the start of filming, and the set is dressed and ready to go. I’m giving you a behind-the-scenes tour of the cabin in which the majority of the film will take place.
This week has been crazy busy, so instead of talking to you myself, I’ve decided to give you a look inside the make-up FX studio of Eric Zapata. Eric, some of you may know, was on both the 4th and 5th seasons of Face Off on SyFy. He’s a make-up badass and he’s building some sick appliances for our film. Here you get to see the clay models that he’s sculpting in order to cast the appliances.
This week’s update comes to you from Los Angeles, where we spent several days doing auditions. Steven teases some big casting news.
[We apologize for the sound and the focus issues, but Steven had to shoot this himself and there was a limited amount of equipment he could bring with him.]
In which Steven use a tiny microphone to interview some big people.
The first in a series of weekly updates on the progress of feature horror film Found Footage 3D. This week Steve talks about his fear of dying in a fiery train wreck sometime in the next two months.
Found Footage 3D director Steven DeGennaro shaves his beard off for the first time in 3 1/2 years in order to start his “playoff beard”. He will no longer shave, buzz, trim, shape, or pluck a single hair on his face until we sell the movie to a distributor.
Actors have all sorts of special techniques to help them warm up and get into their parts. For some, it’s tongue twisters and breathing exercises. For others, it’s becoming one with their spirit animal. Check out Ryan as he tries to get in the mindset of a chicken.
Sometimes, you just have to let your actors speak for themselves about what an amazing project it is that they’re working on, and all of their favorite things about the shoot. This week, Ryan and Bridget discuss the power of working in 3D.
Just how do we make a scene feel like it’s happening in a real place, and not a film set? It all come’s down to some very careful arrangement of the props and scenery….and it definitely helps if you can move really, really fast!
Ryan finds out first hand the dangers of indulging in the on-set snacks, leading to a slight burning sensation.
