Production BLOG: Day 1

The first day on a project is always the toughest. We have a new crew that is a mix of experienced personnel and first timers that really started to hit their stride around mid morning.

The day's schedule had many small clips and only a few long scenes that would have improved the overall productivity. Unfortunately we only managed to complete around three quarters of what was scheduled. Adding insult to injury was a bug in the Red One camera's software that tricked the crew into lowering the camera sound sensitivity to an unacceptable level. The editor and producer are now taking a look at what can be used, what can be fixed with ADR and Foley, and what will need to be re-shot.

On the positive side the day was a valuable learning experience and has yielded some very impressive imagery. We are confident that this team will be able to improve overall productivity.
