Hello everyone. I feel like it has been forever since I last posted. Probably because it has! Since I last blogged we have had a crew meeting, and two dress and script rehearsals!
During our last crew meeting it was crunch time. We had to figure out how many cameras we were going to have, which scenes to shoot at night, the different make-up and costumes to be used for the shoots, our sound equipment, and much more! We also reviewed all the locations that we will be shooting at which include historical sites :).
The ‘Blind Man’ Scene
The ‘Locket’ scene.
Also, the cameras and the sound were tested out in preparation for shooting next week. Also, as always, Peter Kovic who is in charge of our documentary, had cameras set up around the facility to capture all the exciting moments and all the work that actually goes on while making an independent film.

As the photographer for the film, I decided to spice up the pictures by shooting some in black and white. I am very pleased with the black and white touch. Because of the setting we were rehearsing in, it toned down the background colors and images that I felt were taking away from the subjects in the pictures. Also, the rehearsal and the behind the scenes experience is a very raw experience and I think black and white photos capture this essence perfectly.
And of course, this film has some steampunk influences which will be shown through various props, one being Victor’s goggles:
Last, but of course not least, are some of our actresses wearing the lovely dresses that were mentioned in an earlier blog. They are beautiful!
I also added a chalk and charcoal effect to these two pictures! Suspense, suspense!
Well that’s all I have for today folks. Stay tuned and don’t forget to check out the other bloggers posts!
