It all started out on the morning of June 12th, 2010. The Crew arrived early to give us a hand loading all of the equipment onto the truck. We then headed to Dansville, N.Y. to begin our two day long film shoot. We unloaded at the cabin and then headed to Pokes hole for the first scene. Everything was going fine until one of the batteries died. The other batteries were still back at the cabin so we decided to finish that scene later as we got ready for the next scene setting up the dolly. The next couple scenes went down smoothly. We ended up ending early which gave us more time to set up for our night time scene.
After setting up multiple lights around the cabin, it was time for some more filming. The Cast and Crew were getting sleepy, with ten hours of straight shooting who wouldn’t be? We only had about two more hours of shooting. The lights were a minor factor in filming but we easily adjusted them and continued. We then decided to finishing in the morning with the dream sequence.
It was 8am on June 13th, waking up to rain. Rain and horrible weather was a major factor in our shoot last year which delayed us from finishing last year. Everyone was ready to start shooting but the rain didn’t want to hold up. At roughly 12pm we were ready to shoot, but first we took some promo pictures of the cabin and the cast so we would be able to play around with it in editing trying to come up with a dvd/movie poster!
We only had one more scene left and it would be the hardest one all weekend, Kim’s Death. We quickly designed a mat to lie under Kim (Caitlin Kenyon) that would safely be used underneath her as she got pulled up the hill by a 50ft rope. We were able to get multiple shots which turned out Fantastic!
