The final full day of production on The Weather Report was slated from the beginning to be the most ambitious one yet. Starting at 6:45am yesterday, it took close to twelve hours to complete---with three separate locations, dark barroom shots to bright sun-lit outdoor scenes, a near full cast plus twenty five extras, and around fifty separate setups on the shot list. We even got in a green screen before the day was over.
Yet, the cast and crew once again showed their true colors. They worked fast and efficiently, under time constraints and sometimes in very uncomfortable high temperature conditions, both outside under the sun and inside under lights. We never once heard any complaints or dissension.
The cast and crew showed themselves to be professional and willing to do what it take to make good film. It'd be a pleasure to collaborate with any of them again on future projects.
