I haven’t made one of these in years. But then I had a stupid idea and a free afternoon, so here we are.
It was a good couple hours for principle photography and a few hours of editing. The trickiest part, by far, was getting the 3-way split screen shot. It’s incredibly challenging to say lines timed with imaginary performances of yourself (for me, anyways). I was nowhere close so I had to fix a lot of it in post. But it helped a lot to have a rough script written. Other challenges:
- Finishing principle photography with a kid in the house.
- Finding three locations in my house that looked different enough.
- Pronouncing the Russian. I took a bit of it in college, but I’m really rusty.
