Two Weeks Break
Last week was a busy week of filming and it feels really good to have a 2 week break for shooting Contingent because it allows me some time to catch up and finish on my other film projects. The first episode of the show is almost complete so keep an eye out for a trailer soon!
A Big Thank You
Finished filming the last school scene for Contingent and it wouldn't have been possible to film if it weren't for the extras that came out today. Thank you to Athena Kierra, Hunter Schmidt, Kim Douthwaite and Geoffrey Hendrie.
Late Night Filming
Got home at 1 am filming for Contingent last night. Big props to some of the cast for coming out regardless of their early work schedule. Gotta love them for their hard work and dedication. All of you inspire me.
Finally A Break
I had a very busy, but fun, week working on set as an extra on the "Signed Sealed Delivered" movie and filming for "Contingent". It feels really good to have today off because my body totally needed it to recover. Anyways, a "Contingent" Facebook page has been created so please check it out here for updates, behind the scenes footage and bloopers.
Finally got my LinkedIn profile setup! It is definitely a great tool to have because you can improve your connections in any industry you're interested in. Check mine out here and sign up if you don't have an account yet.
Gong Show Filming Day
Yesterday, we filmed a big scene, for Contingent, with background performers and it turned out to be a gong show. There were suppose to be at least 10 extras to arrive on set and only 4 came! I can imagine it must have been tough for the director, Sam Rosen, to get creative about shooting a scene like there was suppose to be many people in it but he might have pulled it off. We'll see how the editing goes during post production and if it doesn't turn out well, then at least everyone would be very prepared for a re-shoot. Let's hope for the best!
happy canada day!
Spent my Canada Day working on set as an extra for a TV movie and I couldn't been happier. It's been nearly 3 months since I was on a professional set and I didn't know how much I missed it until I was there. It has been a great week so far as I have also worked 3 days on Contingent and will be shooting another scene this coming Saturday. I can't wait!
