KOB Shot of the Day #70: VukasVision

Shot with iPhone, click to enlarge.

Another night of hard work paying off from all sides of production. Can't believe we only have 5 days left but seeing and knowing the puzzle pieces we got only makes me more excited. Lots to go still but again, a rewarding night...except those trains & planes F'ing up our takes. Loudest. Forest. EVER.

CUT TO: Close up-Mike Vukas, Chief Lighting Tech and one of the many smiling faces on the set, seen here using his trusty pen-laser to shine on something (probably) important....or just look cool...who knows, but with all the smoke on-set it's like a SWAT ambush when he shoots it off into the distance.

During lunch, I usually stay on-set while the rest go off to base camp; some might think Im being douchie & anti-social but with the constant busywork & hustle and flow on a movie set, you savor your silence, especially when you're mind is racing. Mike is one who also enjoys the "calm moments before the storm" (to quote Sir Oldman) and each night we usually sit on each "hot" set at hand, sometimes chewing the fat but mostly just taking in the scene at hand quietly, working out our strategy each night in our heads as we shovel our chow down. Another vital member of our Fellowship and a pleasure to be around.

I remember when you blasted out"Screw(edited)you Southern Airlines"!! with the whole crew erupting in laughter, another shot on hold because of a passing jet..or the funky impassioned cries of a pack of coyotes wishing they could get in on some KOB filming action but it is not to be,they are nothing but kibbles and bits for our antagonist.
Visit your quiet place Joe and reload for the goal or prize is near at must persevere! but take heart in knowing that the whole KOB family is with you and supporting you.
