We started shooting episode three on Tuesday night and we’ll be shooting more this weekend and possibly next Tuesday night. For the first time in this project I cannot wait for the shooting to be over. I don’t want to reveal the subject matter of the third episode, because I feel like as soon as I do people are going to ask questions or offer opinions or suggestions on how to structure it and I don’t want to cloud the direction that I think Michael and I are going with this one.
Suffice it to say, we thought we’d be making a piece about one thing and very quickly we realized that the story was going to be in the same setting, but about something much much darker.
The only way I can really explain it is to say this: imagine that you have tickets for a basketball game, you get in the car, you enter the arena and very quickly you realize that you’re at a dog-fight. Still, despite the clear carnage everyone around you tells you you’re at a basketball game, every one acts like you’re at a basketball game but all you can see is the dog-fight.
That’s the way this one feels.
