In Production Now

Day 0.0. Filming commenced at the InArtMedia studio in Culver City. Because these are second unit shots and are unique to the plot, the cast and content of these scenes will not be posted. Overall, everything went well.

In addition to these shots, we will see three teens in a chatroom reacting to the lead character, Micky’s news, that he works in a nudist resort. I was unable to shoot the first chatroom scene, as the actress was unavailable.

Day 0.1, principal cast members showed to perform their SPFX scenes, but we only filmed Alicia Arden and Kara Michelle Hyatt as Tiffany and Britney. Actress Kimmarie Johnson who is playing the resort owner, could not attend to participate in a preliminary reading.

No pickups, unless Alicia is available to be a severed head. I don't know if we have that technology. I was thinking of covering her in a white blanket, but you can't control fake blood like that.

Michael Lehr is cast as Tad, the Asian American jokester. Cerina DeGraca is cast as Janey and has shot some stills for us to be used in the storyline.

The beheading scene looks great, better than we thought.

Now the drawbacks. The tenant in charge of the space is overcharging and though I’d like to return to do the fight scene, chances are we will not. There are filming ordinances in West Hollywood anyway, and we don’t want to raise the noise level.
