The Making of "Collection Day": Day 8
We're down to the final days of the Collection Day shoot, all of which took place in the vacant suburban home that we occupied for half of the schedule. After being on plenty of shoots outside where the cast and crew is constantly uncomfortable (all for the sake of the art, of course), it is always nice to work on a film in a controlled environment.
There were two occasions at the house when I didn't plan very well and I had an actor waiting around all day to perform (something I try to avoid at all costs). The good news was that it was in a temperature controlled home, with food and facilities (and a puzzle!) at the ready. If you have to make your actors wait around, at least make them wait around in style.
