JULY in BC: Pre-production of OUT OF SOUND

All the things! Pre-production is such a whirlwind, even for a three day shoot. Wardrobe, locations, crafty, meals, paperwork, insurance, equipment, props, shot lists, shooting schedules, call sheets, FX make-up, stunts, rehearsals, gear.

Both of us being early birds, Julia and I have been taking pre-production meetings for OUT OF SOUND at 5:30AM at my house over breakfast (and we’ve kind of loved it.)

Also, we have a crazy dedicated cast and crew for this film, and I want to acknowledge Wang Geochen as Director of Photography, Jes Matthiesen for Sound Mix, Lisa Leighton for Wardrobe, Alex Gould & Lita Lopez-Shorthill for Props and Crafty, and Ana de Lara for Meals.
