It says a lot when you commit to a task, you try to complete it as best you can. And that’s what it felt like.
Today is a bittersweet day. It is the last FILMING DAY of 13 Miles! I have literally been apart of this project for a year (I think?). And what better way to celebrate the last day then to have our biggest crew gathering ever. With a special appearance of SNOW!
Thanks Anthony and Helena from Habethy Film for having me along on this special journey! I learnt a lot! And MET a lot of wonderful people out of it.
We filmed at a small airport next to the main YVR airport. It wasn’t too crowded and there weren’t many signs or billboards anywhere! Making it the perfect airport location to film.
Today was one of those days where the night felt like it was never going to end… and when it did you had to work your day job right afterwards. It was a full-on 32 hour day for me.
It was just a small crew this time.
I struggled climbing up all those stairs because of my bad left knee. I also struggled with trying to do 360 shots with Pooka. Which made me frustrated throughout the day among other things.
Overall, it wasn’t a great day for me, but what I could get with the drone (eventually) made me realize how much more practice I need with doing slow panning 360 shots.
Today we filmed on a track, a forest trail, and then took a ferry back and forth at Horseshoe Bay.
This was probably one of the funner days (in the rain).
Today we filmed during the Vancouver Triathlon. It was a very early start. 3 A.M. to be exact. But the weather turned out pretty spectacular in the end. No sooner after we wrapped that afternoon, myself, Emma, Max, and Cam went down to the beach for an hour or so.
Because soon after that day it rained for a good 3 weeks straight (?) or more (?).
We made movie magic and blacked out the windows to make it seem like it was night time. See how we managed that in the BTS video below:
It was such a beautiful day! Who knew the days coming after was just going to be rain rain rainnnn 🙁
This is probably one of my favourite BTS videos that I’ve edited.
