Lights, Camera, ACTION (and bugs, wind, cow)

The Camp Floyd School House in Fairfield, Utah.

On Saturday, I filmed an interview about where BLOOD MOON began with my filmmaker brother, John Bills. There was a ton of crazy, complicated equipment that he set up (I helped a little, but it was quite technical) all for this short 2-3 minute video. It made me wonder how full length movies ever get made. There’s a lot more to it than a camera on a tripod!

Once everything was set up we started taping the interview, which went smoothly except for a few interruptions from the wind and bugs flying into my face while talking. Oh, and some cow that sounded exactly like a Wookie.

The video will be ready for the launch date! Can’t wait to see it! Until then, here are some pics from the shoot.

Not 1, but 2 cameras taping the interview.

This big screen, which took forever to set up, diffuses the sunlight and makes everything look nice.

Another view of the screen. What I was looking at.

You know it’s serious when a sledge hammer is involved!

John setting up a dolly shot. Basically, this is a skateboard for the camera.

  1. I sincerely hope that the cow that sounded exactly like a Wookie makes it into the final video. I really, really, want to hear that. πŸ™‚
