KOB Shot of the Day #78: That's a WRAP (and a Toast!)!)

Shot with iPhone, click to enlarge.

There's just too much to say, and yet I don't have the words. Does that make sense?

One of the most productive and fun shoot days ever. Was it because the end was neigh? Or was it that, being on a controlled soundstage (as opposed to being a slave to the weather or the Lunar cycle or those insects) by "Brooming up" the film, we got to revisit some memorable moments from days & weeks ago?

There was a general sense of fun in the air as we shot final pieces of 0's & 1's as a family, together enjoying the little slices of madness we conjured up in the last 30 days with a hell of a great cast and crew. Two crews/units running at Full Tilt Boogie; we spilled a LOT of blood, broke a few hearts, splashed in the water, soared in the air like kids, exploded shit, tipped the hat to SLING BLADE, cavorted in tents....and other seemingly random moments that to anyone stepping onto set today for the first time without an idea of the movie would ask 'What the hell is going on here?!?!"

That made me remember why we do this crazy shit; to elicit a reaction, and because we love movies for that. The smiles everyone wore today proved that theory. It was a great day to be on a movie set.

Sadly, there was not a whole crew photo to be had, and too many moments to give away from the snaps today, but this one could work...

...Suddenly, and without notice, a table of "spirits" appeared in the corner of the Wherhouse we rented out to shoot the final day of shots and scenes. At 6:23 am, KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM wrapped Principal Photography and many a toast was had amongst the remaining, some of whom actually stayed or came back to hang out with the gang. Or to drink the booze, whatevs.

...and what am I doing now? Yep, I'm writing this while furiously packing,listening to the KOB Metal Mixtape (Now playing: "Whiplash" from Metallica on "Action #2") then going to see PIRHANA 3-D before leaving Spokane (or sleeping).
By midnight, I will be back in Los Angeles with my family. Surreal.

Onward, we toast!

Two bottles of Glenmorangie scotch! Connor Macleod would be ever so proud.
