SEQUENCES Day 7 Production  
THE UNTOLD STORY OF FRANK EDGE JR (Day 7 Production)

Day 7



This was our sorta "short" production day which we made for a Saturday instead of the usual Sunday. Basically one scene we were suppose to shoot last week but didn't and an added scene that was written into the movie. Filmed with Beth on her solo scenes from 3pm to 4pm. Waited around for Keith to arrive from getting his new tat. His shoot was with beth and went from 5:30 to 6:45pm. All in all a 2 and half hour shoot. YET it was somewhat difficult.

SCENE X (The Added Scene): Liz getting Settled.
This was basically written to make the arrival of Liz into the film less abrupt and to get a better sense of things. We see Liz unpacking her suitcase when Frank decides to run out of her. She kills time in a montage of things before we end on her in the office, watching tv and getting a call from Frank whose now held up in a cheap motel. Some dialog and boom. A much needed piece of cushion between scenes.

NOTE: Movies! Not a lot going on here aside from just doing the shots based off a rough hand written shot list and some improv. Did some dialog and all was well. It's only looking at this place during the day that it looks like a complete trash pit. No point in trying to clean it, just burn the fucker to the ground.

SCENE 8: Frank Tries to Be Nice
After Frank's escape from Liz to a motel room, he comes home with a gift. A fancy baby cartridge. But Liz is a bitch and doesn't want any of it. Frank has his first day dream of killing her with a hammer.

NOTE: Shooting dialog sucks because you generally have to shoot a lot of takes to get the right flow of things or so is my experience. Thus me hating dialog. Case in point was this scene. some dialog between Keith and Beth. Took awhile to get use-able footage. Then things got retarded and hysterics started happening. The laughing and everything that slowly drives one to insanity. Then Keith attacked Beth with a hammer in a series of shots where he doesn't have a hammer and Beth is head-banging on the couch, Keith hitting some bloody things that fly around, feet kicking shots. I really have no idea how this will cut together. But TAPE END. Got some a neat blood splatter shot by filling a tin dish covered with a sheet soaked in fake blood. Once hit full on with the real hammer. BLOOD! weeeeee.
