Filming started yesterday, 21st of March in the convenient apartment location which has made an appearance in less than 5 films already, luckily this time it will only be featured in the first 2 minutes of the short film. Shooting started shortly at half 3 and wrapped it up at 6, plenty of photos were taken at the scene of the crime and hopefully we’ll have them up soon. Filming commenced today ( 22nd March ) starting from 2 and finishing shortly after 6, fewer photos taken this time but at least we filmed it at Hodrum’s residence much to the behest of his dogs who weren’t used to such “ruff” treatment. So far we are approximately 3 – 4 minutes into the film, I reckon we have half of it done and that’s discounting possible ( or probable ) re-shoots, cutaways and inserts. But overall it’s been a fairly productive process, with an expanded film crew, a set of new toys ( shotgun mic, boom poles and a portable digital recorder ) and Cethan’s newfound ability to pretend to act in front of the camera, it should be a step up from the previous Gifted Babies production, Cork Christmas Carol and that other film.
Speaking of that other film, Milton Murder Mystery Part 2 is currently in the works and hopefully will be released by the end of the week once I find the will to finish it, it’s only unfortunate that I misplaced that somewhere in a field in Millstreet.
And speaking of time traveling houses, a new Cethan Leahy story titled “The House That Tripped Through Time” has entered preproduction, borrowing some of the good elements of an imaginary John Carpenter film about time travelling houses, this will be guaranteed to be Cethan’s second Magnum Opus, or just plain chocolate icecream if not.
