Beuda - well, if you must know, I was going to put some rocks there for the monster to bust through, but there simply wasn’t enough time for all that. Besides, its more B-movie like for the main character to do over the top acting when it comes to action scenes! Why do the boring thing and run around the truck?
Anyways, setting up that truck flip shot was a huge task. We basically dragged it to the location that was about 10 miles away, with me sitting in the truck trying to steer it with a very destroyed front, end watching the ground go by though a huge hole in the dashboard, as another truck towed it. I just wish we could have got some b-roll of that to put in the making of. I think people underestimate the challenges of bringing a live action piece together unless you actually try to do it, especially one with stunts! The hardest part for me was organizing everything and everyone to meet on a specific day and have the weather be in our favor. The whole first day of shooting (the b-roll from our making of) was scraped because of poor weather and lighting.
Well after 3 non-consecutive days of shooting, two hours of footage, 400 gigs of space, and 2 minutes of final video, I think we are all pleased with the final result. Hope to have an HD version soon.
Thanks for watching! :wavey:
