not a fan - week 4

Shane has a new director's journal up at the CHP Blog. I have been lovingly banished from the set pending the Ramsey family's recovery from the stomach virus of '09...oh wait...I guess I need to be more specific...the stomach virus of October '09...as opposed to the stomach virus of January/February '09...but I angrily digress. I'll return to the set next week and should be able to pick up on the behind the scenes videos then.

Not A Fan - Days 7 thru 11

Wasn't on the set much last week. I'm arranging the script content for the next City on a Hill Productions series. Also, I shot a music video two days last week. Anyway, here's another director's journal by Shane Sooter.

Today, we're scheduled to shoot a party scene that takes place in 1979.

Not A Fan - Red Footage 1


NF-Fight in the Shelter from City on a Hill.
"Hey everyone - Kevin (our DP and primary editor) did an edit of one of the scenes we filmed last week, a scene in which Eric has a very passionate argument with his father, Bill. This is the same scene that we posted a iPhone video from Gabe (our AD), so you can see how it all came together! One important note: in our process, we're recording sound separately, so its just music video style. If you like the tune, go buy Brandon Heath's GIVE ME YOUR EYES!"

Also, this clip features my lovely wife, Kristina.

Not A Fan - Day 2



I've worked out a system with the "Behind the Scenes" videographer to start snagging some stills. In the meantime, here's some from director Shane Sooter's twitter.

The weather was terrible and dreary. Though I must say it did work for one scene. But, another scene got canceled. In any case, the things we did get to film turned out really nice. The actors have been really terrific.

And, in other exciting, cast-related news. David Attebury (Julien in The Oath of Desormeau) joined the cast today. He'll be playing the younger version of the series' main character, Eric. I'm really excited to work with him again.

Tonight, I have to do some small rewrites for some of tomorrow's scenes.

Not A Fan - Day 1

Just finished our first day of shooting. We filmed a pivotal scene tonight, and the actors nailed it, which makes me really excited to see the rest. I'll try to have some pictures up tomorrow.
