So last week Rachel, Phillip, Annie, Micah, and I took another trip to our location (Josiah and Lizzy were down in Oregon and couldn’t join us, we missed them 😦 ). Our purpose was to figure out exactly where the events in the script should play out. We needed a fork in the road, a covered area in the woods, and an open area without a lot of underbrush; we found everything we needed! *happy dance* I’m really liking the look of the place, the view is great and you can see the mountains.
Another reason we went there was to film a sniper test; one of the characters in the script carries a sniper rifle and I wanted to see if I could pull off a good sniper effect.
This was the result:
Warning: this video contains some violence and blood.
I learn quite a bit doing this; next time I think the kickback from the gun should be bigger, and the reaction from the person getting shot should be more of a snap-and-drop rather than a snap…pause…fall.
That’s all for today folks, hope you enjoyed this look into what is happening.
And that’s the way the butter is spread.
