Day 49: Shot List Work Continues

The work on compiling the shot list continues. I’m still in the first act-the process is slow for me as I like to envision every single scene playing out in my head multiple times before I write down the shots-and yet I already have a lot of shots that I need to get for the movie. I wouldn’t be surprised if the final number is somewhere in the hundreds-that’s a lot of footage!

It’s true I already knew how much we’d have to shoot to make this movie happen but it becomes more real when you sit down and actually are like “this is how I want this scene to play out”.  A page on the script might not seem like much and traditionally that’s seen as only one minute in the film. And yet that single page, that single minute, can contain like 15 to 20 different angles.
