Day #11: A View to a Kill

Not so much luck today. We did get one location though!

After ample discussion on physical production issues from parking to sound recording to the actual quality of the filmed scene, we decided to shoot the Ext Balcony NIGHT scene at the USC-owned parking lot just east of the 110 freeway.

A daytime view from the "balcony" can be seen above.

At a privately owned balcony, we'd have to pay a police officer to monitor the prop gun use and the crew's safety for $1,000 a day.

But at this USC parking lot, the parking, permits, and safety costs are free (no police officer required). I think we can construct a fake balcony and rent quality sound equipment for well under $1,000.

But the Int. Angela's Apartment NIGHT location still eludes us: small, grubby studio-style apartment with cool colors in a film friendly environment at student discount prices. Not easy to come by.

So my producer Mitsuyo just woke up from a nap and we're checking one last apartment possibility tonight. After that, I am heading home to work on some "Under 5" character breakdowns and enjoy a night out with the wife :)

Stay tuned tomorrow when we lock our locations!
