Racing the Sun

In Notes From the Set by Rod SantianoLeave a Comment

Never-ending lawnmowers and edge trimmer noise from neighbors along with random birds and, of course, airplanes and drive-bys… shooting outside is always a challenge.  Competing and working with the moving sun as your main light source is always a challenge—especially on a budget. After a full day of exterior shooting, we had a backyard party scene that was a bit of chaos but we managed to get all the scenes we needed, even some that the director didn’t think we’d have time to do before  we lost the sun. It was fun—a bit chaotic and tiring—and I even got to wear my Indiana Jones fedora hat all day!

Making movies is fun :)
