Well, Igor flexed his directing muscle for yesterday’s shoot. This is a brief scene but the actual shoot was anything but brief. This was due to the complexity of certain shots, the distance between each set, the heat and holy crap that freakin’ humidity! It had to have been 100 degrees Fahrenheit and 99.99999% humidity. I could swear I felt the resistance from the water as I walked! Although the shoot lasted a bit longer than we had hoped, the result was well worth the pain anguish. We got a fantastic scene done, and it wouldn’t have happened without the help of everyone who was there, especially:
Jamie Russo-For being there to help out on the biggest shot of that day.
Kate Brody-For providing us with props and costumes that made this shoot complete!
Dany Rauccio-Without her, the Polish Navy would no vessels, the Frenchman would not be French and Steve wouldn’t have those pretty eyes.
Alex Williams-Whose clever strategy of shooting unarmed Pols gave him victory on the battlefield.
Ben Gawle-Whose heroic deeds will be remembered for all eternity in the hall of warriors. FREEEEDOM!!!
Steve Kompar-Who had to put up with Tom’s hedonistic desire to rub dirt all over Steve’s body.
Dan Gorka-Who risked serious injury to do a stunt and then repeat it for two more takes.
Parker Bonnell and Ana Collins-If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t have the awesome production stills that we got. Here are a some of them.
