It's a wrap!
On Sunday 31st at 3:40 pm we got the last shot after 52 takes. You can see from the photo that our hand model, Michelle Clarke, literally sweat blood due to the stress involved from working under such a perfectionist director. Keiran had to interveen as it was obvious I couldn't bring myself to stop. He gently placed his hand on my shoulder and whispered in Latin "is "Consummatum est" in English "it is finished". I began to weep uncontrollably and cry out "Never, Never!" until he spoke the words in Klingon "Dor-sho-gha! Aaron forshak!" or in English "Let's drink Aarons wine".
The wrap party invovled myself and Keiran Mangan dressing up as characters from 2001 a Space Odessy and drinking sherry. It lasted for 8 seconds and the stripper never showed, tho she may have as I don't remember much from those 8 seconds.
The edit is also pretty close to done, just audio tracks, some post FX and a colour grade and it's in the bag!
I'll still review the last 3 weeks of shooting and pop up the single wrap party photo on this blog soon.
I'll have a cast and crew screening in Collingwood and Belgrave when it happens.
So the shoot has taken 4 months. It really should have taken 4 days.
