On Day 5 of Production on I Ship It | Finish Line In Sight
So this is actually only half the screengrabs I was sent… I’m leaving some out because SPOILERS. But that’s okay. Because look at all the pretty and awesome! As I said in my last post, living space interiors is really a time for production design to shine, and our designer Jennifer Hwang never fails to rock it (check out her past work on A Tell Tale Vlog, Bertha’s Attic Song, Irene Lee, Girl Detective, andFangirl). The attention to detail Jen puts into her work never ceases to amaze me, from small set pieces she builds from scratch to filling rooms with artful clutter according to how we think the characters live their lives.
Day 4’s focus was on Zoe’s bedroom, while Day 5’s focus was on Charlie’s bedroom. We had discussed more of a design-conscious, clean and architectural aesthetic to Charlie’s bedroom, vs. a colorful, cozy and comfortable mess in Zoe’s room.
Props also go out to seanpersaud for being tirelessly awesome at his job on a day that demanded a lot of him, and to marykatewiles for being totally lovely to work with as usual. Thanks also goes out to our phenomenal crew, who worked a crazy long, hot day with wild lighting setups and camera moves. At one point our DP Zack Wallnau started bleeding from the face due to high blood pressure from running backwards with a full steadicam rig?! But the focus stayed sharp throughout. There was also an embarrassing moment where I wiped out on the floor while walking backwards and reading a script. Ahh, production.
Day 6 (pickups!) are tomorrow!
