The Wayback Machine: Cinematography

More digging up the old files.

This is a teen horror film that I shot mid 2003, called Halloween House Party (imdb). There’s a lot I might say about doing this shoot – in short it was grueling. We only had 9 days to shoot a 90 page script, so we had to be very organized. Lighting, Camera and Production departments worked like a dream, other things not so much.

I made these maps in MS Visio to help guide the A and B crew with the set schedule for the day. My 1st AC, Gaffer, Set Decorator, 1st AD and Director all had a copy of these sheets. I kept a full script (printed half size) and this sheet tucked into my AC pouch.
