Sorry for the delay in updates, not much time to update with the crazy and busy life on set.
So the actual third day of filming I had to work at my job that pays me (Blockbuster) so I wasn’t able to be on set that day. Apparently that was a huge day to miss. I arrived on set the 4th day of shooting to find out that Jesse had left the production for reasons that still can’t and haven’t been fully divulged to everyone, except that it was more or less a matter of creative differences. I wasn’t there that day so I’m not sure exactly what happend, nor am I high enough up in the ranking to be told. All that we were told was that it was a mutual agreement essentially to shut down filming on “The Ambassadors”.
So ended the filming of that film, but began a new experience on Pre-Production on a trailer for a film called “T.K.O.” It involved striking the set of “The Ambassadors” and returning set decor to it’s original owners as well as a bunch of necessary pre-production work.
The pre-production work involved for me anyways creating new contact lists and spreadsheets for finding a spec. car for the film as well as extras. Production started Tuesday this week and has gone really well, only had the cops called on us once because a scene we were shooting was too realistic, but all was taken care off.
Filming is scheduled to end on Sunday.
I’ll end with what I posted on as my Facebook status after what had happened on “The Ambassadors”:
Well “The Ambassadors” may have wrapped well before anyone had expected it to, but all the new people and friends I made on set will stay with me for a very long time. I’ll eventually get to see my name in the credits of a film someday, I guess just not yet. Here’s to the next great film adventure that will be “T.K.O.”…
