Leslie and Amy from Film POP! and Chase Bailey from Left Bank Films (Crooked Lane) are gathering together the candid photos and any candid video footage from the making of the film. As you know, we want to really bring people behind the scenes of this film (without giving away the plot, of course!), and that includes the viewpoint of the cast, the crew, the extras and anyone who stopped to watch and be part of the fun.
If you have photos or video from any day of the shoot, we’d love to see them and possibly include them. We’d also love to hear and include your story from that day. We’ve interviewed many of the cast members and crew members, but we also want to know what you liked about being an extra, or about the experience of watching a movie get filmed from the sidelines.
How do you get these things to us? Well, if you have already posted them somewhere online, you can:
1) Leave a comment here with a link to where you posted the photos or video
2) Put a link back to this blog in the video or in the description of the photos so people who find Crooked Lane from your content can then find out more about the film by coming here
3) Tell us your story – you can do that in the comments of this post, or you can send it to us with the correct links by email (we’ll tell you how in a moment)
And if you haven’t posted the photos or video online anywhere yet, you can:
1) Leave a comment here letting us know you’ve got content and will be sending it
2) Email it to us, with your story and a little info about you and why you were there
Leslie is going to be the main point of contact for this content gathering project, and her email is here. You can also send your content to Amy by emailing her here. Make sure to link to or reference this post prominently in your email so we know to allow your email through the spam filter!
I can’t wait to see the photos and video everyone took during filming!
Just because the filming wrapped at 5:15 last night and the cast and crew enjoyed a break at the wrap party (videos below), it doesn’t mean the work is done or the content will stop! We have hours of footage of the cast and crew answering your questions, more back story from Thomas to come, and weeks of editing. If you are into the technical side of film, you’ll love that we’ll be bringing you into some of the editing process as well (without divulging the actual film of course – we want you to be surprised).
I’d like to give the crew a round of applause for pulling five straight days of grueling location work in often terrible weather. They really came through, in spite of days full of mosquitos and flash flood inducing weather and days full of sunburns lugging heavy equipment in the heat. Without them there would be no film to edit.
Be sure to tell everyone you know to subscribe to the blog, join the FaceBook page, follow us all on Twitter (cast Twitter accounts on the cast page, crew Twitter accounts will be added soon), subscribe to the YouTube channel and put your real time comments in the Viddler channel. We’re going to continue to answer your questions until the film is in the can. We love having you with us on this journey.
Here are a few quick videos from the wrap party last night taken using my mobile phone and Qik. We also have several (more professional) interviews taken by Amy which will go up later. Enjoy, and keep those questions coming!
Chase answers questions from the readers left in the comments of this post. This time, he is talking about why he chose the RED camera for Crooked Lane and what excites him about working with it.
