Week #2 of principal photography completed!

The crew and I are pushing into a fantastic technical and creative groove.

We've moved to several different locations in the past couple days after enjoying filming one part of our story in a very comfortable place. Next week we stay in a single spot for most of the week, and move to a couple more at the end.

I won't give anything away by saying that I believe Elisabeth Röhm won't be ordering a pepperoni pizza any time soon... Here's a direct quote: "I'm going to puke. Let's shoot."

Game girl, that one!

We're right on schedule - no problems we couldn't solve on the spot.

Today's props go to Brad Turner, props assistant, and property master Christopher McFadden! Brad is right there, every time we need a prop on set or on the actor - no matter how outrageous the request. He made disgusting fake dog poop using a popular protein bar (peanut butter-chocolate); it looked like the real thing. Eeew.

Christopher landed us amazing product placements (products we can use on set approved by the company that manufactures them), and landed us the use of several copyrighted publications, including the local daily newspaper the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which created an amazing faux "front page" with stories about our characters.

What I love about our film is that everyone gets to stand out - each department and individual within the 70-person crew is superbly represented on screen.

I'm mostly resting this, my birthday weekend. Before you ask ... 39. And a half. Again. Some friends are taking me out for a low key breakfast to shore up my energy. Directing this film with this crew and this cast is the best birthday present I could ever receive. Every day is like my birthday on the set.

    Now I won't be eating any protein, or other types of bars for a while :/

    Have a fantastic and restful birthday CP!
