"Weather Report" Pick-Up Shots with Odari Kimani

We picked-up three more location shots today for The Weather Report. The short scenes involved actor Odari Kimani and will be used in a montage sequence for the movie.

The shoot started at Brittingham Boat Rentals in Madison.

We then went to the Henry Vilas Zoo. Crew help came from Colin Cameron and executive producer Rick Richards. Extras included Ivy Suryana and Wuri Kusumastuti.

Ended at the vacant Garver Feed Mill.

Time-Lapse Footage Shot for "The Weather Report"

More pickup shots were filmed yesterday for The Weather Report. Robert and Colin captured time-lapse footage of day going to night. The video, of course, took hours to get (from about 1:30-9:00 pm), yet we'll see it on screen for no more than a few seconds.

Final Pickup Shot for "Just God"

Doug Reed, the star of Just God, was in Madison this weekend. So Nicholas and Robert took advantage of the opportunity to get in one last pickup shot with him. The edit of the film is inching closer to completion, but it's still missing some crucial information in the beginning sequence. We hope we got it today.
