Trial Run

Today, in anticipation of a crucial sequence in the film, Chris McConnell, who arrived last night from Portland to help out, did a quick Google research as our possible source in Lolo turned out not to have one, and went and got the goods for a suicide kit.  He put it together this morning, and to check out if the image was what I was looking for I donned the bag, and had shots of myself taken, stills and a video.  Whipped it together as a check and think it’s what I was looking to make.  In movement it is somewhat beautiful and chilling.

It’ll be a long, slow, and disturbing sequence, or I think it will.  A test video of it seems to have worked very well.

The last two days Roxanne and Ryan and I also worked on our opening scene, a meeting of mother and son.  We’ll take one more shot at it tomorrow, though we have a perfectly usable version (or two or three) in hand.  We think we can do better.
