Making a Movie: My First Day On Set

Stephen Kickstarter 4

Making a Movie” is a series of columns that chronicles our attempt to make, market, and distribute a film with Stephen Tobolowsky in 2014. Our Kickstarter is still live and you can support our film project by going here.

On Wednesday, I woke up at 5:30 AM and spent the whole day shooting test footage for the film I’m working on with Stephen Tobolowsky. We had an ambitious schedule: between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., we were going to take one of Stephen’s stories and shoot different segments of it in four different locations (we plan to edit them together to form a single cohesive story). Later, at 8 p.m., Stephen performed a 45-minute story in front of a crowd of two dozen people in a local coffee shop, which we also filmed. Depending on how all the footage turns out, we may incorporate it into the final film.

I can now say that I have tasted the life of a filmmaker (actually, not even a full taste – more like an amuse-bouche) and it is definitely challenging as all get out.
