11/6/2013-ACTING-Second & Final Day Filming on “Briarwood”

-My 2nd and final (unless needed for pick up shots and / or ADR) day of filming for “Briarwood.” This took place at The Gear Factory in Syracuse. I’d filmed here before in 2010 for a CAROLINE BLUE music video called “Pain.” Time flies…


-I arrived and director Ryan Farmer took me and Jody P. to the room where filming was to be done and we went over the blocking as well as rehearsing the scene several times. One thing of interest is that I had to fall onto the concrete floor twice in the scene. There was a pad there for me to land on, but it never got used. Method acting… 🙂 I’m actually used to having to fall with no padding-although let me state that, if given the choice, I always prefer to use one. Safety first ya know…plus I’m not getting any younger…

-Being that we were filming in the basement of this huge building, all audio captured here was loaded with reverb. After filming, me and Ryan went to the fourth floor and did some ADR but without actually being able to see myself doing the scene while trying to lip sync, there is a chance that I’ll have to come in at a later date to replace all my vocals (hence ADR=Automatic Dialog Replacement).

-In addition, as you can see from the pics, I got a little “battered” in this scene so I had FX makeup on. I have to admit this was the first time that I had a FX effect “loaded” onto me in a certain way 🙂 (someone did get pics of it so they might pop up at some point-and if they do. I’ll copy them here). It’s always fun to be under FX makeup albeit this being more ammo for the “WWJ getting killed” slideshow 🙂

-I was basically here for about 8 hours, which may seem like a long time but when you enjoy doing something, time just flies on by. It was great working with the cast and crew for this and I’m thankful to have the opportunity to work with them all. I believe the projected completion date for this is April 2014.
