Fun with Foley

We've been recording sound effects to be used in No Sleep for Ronni. Tashai is working with something called an Indonesian thunder tube. Interesting results.

"No Sleep for Ronni" 2019 Post Production

We still have a ways to go, but the edit is progressing on No Sleep for Ronni. Feels good to be plugging away and seeing things come together.

New C-Stands!

Thanks to Gretta Wing Miller who let us know about the equipment being sold off by MMC Studio in Madison. We picked up two hardly-used C-stands for less than the price of one new! A super deal!


Each has a turtle base, a 2.5" gobo head and 40" arm.

That's a Wrap on Ms. Slovak!

Portia Adney was brought on to our No Sleep for Ronni project back in July. Her character, Ms. Slovak, is a hard-edged adversary to both the protagonist Ronni Dempster (played by Veronica Narang) and also the antagonist Dr. Bly (Tim Towne).

Today, we successfully completed the last of Portia's scenes. The principal photography is now finished! All that remains are several pickup shots and a few voice over sessions with other actors. These will be recorded once the edit has progressed far enough in post production so that we'll know exactly what is needed.



Today's crew (L to R):

Script Supervisor - Susan Rathke
Production Assistant - David Rodrick
Production Assistant - Cameron Flynn
Actor - Portia Adney
2nd Assistant Camera/Craft Services - Nicholas Wootton
Director - Robert Lughai
Assistant Director - Victoria Siebold
Camera Operator - Jeff Buss
Craft Services - Jill Wootton (not pictured)


Special thanks to Bill White and Barbara Bolan for their assistance in securing our location. And to the Glass Nickel Pizza Co. in Madison for supporting our project with great food.

Restocking the Gear Room

Added a much needed chroma key green to the gaffer tape supply. Also increased the spring clamp count and purchased a new Elvid slate too.
