Day 2 Part 1

Day 2 of our shooting is the longest in our schedule. There were 2 breaks in between, for carolling practice as well as dinner... Then of course there's the travelling to do. So I was hoping that Part 1 would be done quickly and smoothly as possible, but it wasn't to be.

The first scene we shot was a break up scene. I wanted to do it at a playground, but the playground we went to was filled with mosquitoes. Joseph also mentioned that someone committed suicide there... Jason & Jean had to suffer a while before I decided to change location. It turned out to be a good decision. It wasn't a perfect location, but we got most things we desired.
Jason & Jean aren't a couple in real life, so it took them some time to adjust to the idea of holding hands. Jason found it hard to control himself (laughed a lot) while Jean was still feeling the effects of the stings... But we managed to pull through & let Brian & Joseph go off to their carolling practice. Jason, Jean & I headed up to the apartment where we would shoot several more scenes.

One of the most enjoyable things throughout the entire process is to be able to spend time with one another. At most we meet 3 times a week, & we hardly get to talk. And during those moments we took to rest, eat, & prepare props, we managed to catch up on each other's lives . It was refreshing & very precious indeed.

Another really cool thing about this movie making process is to have people working together. I LOVE THAT!! It's so cool to have different individuals make time, come together, & put effort into ONE CAUSE. It's just so awesome. Not 1 person had to do something alone. Everyone helped each other out. And that my friend, is UNITY.
Benjamin Teng only appears on 1 scene, and he took his part seriously. He even gave input on how the camera angle can be & all that... And the scene turned out quite well, thanks to him.

I have A LOT of people to thank. And I do remember. Your contributions are not forgotten.
