My Friend, My Enemy is an idea I've been fooling with for a long time. The concept has to do with the struggle between brotherhood and loyalty to cause. It's been done time and time again in films, but I'm taking a bit of a personal/extreme perspective on it. I'd rather not go too far into the plot details, as I'd rather the film speak for itself. I spent a few weeks on the script, and began preproduction in the summer. I put together costumes, fooled around with some story boarding, and finished getting the rest of my equipment (T2i, Zoom H2, Steadycam, Replacement for my broken NTG-2, etc).
I was finally able to film last week, the final day before summer ended. We had a four hour time frame to film all of the footage on the beach (as some of our cast was in a hurry) and managed to get most all of it, despite many problems including broken props and equipment. Most of the time spent on editing has been spent synching the H2 recordings with my footage. I'm hoping to get FXhome's very own Tommy Gunderson to create an original score, which would be fantastic, but we'll see.
Anyway, thought I'd throw some screen shots up (straight from the raw footage, mind you) and update you all on how the project is going. Should be up in the cinema in a matter of weeks.
Thanks, and I'd encourage you to check out Miker's Production Thread which inspired me to write up my own.
Now in the cinema!
