There’s excitement in the air as the room around us starts to fill up with props and costumes, and the production schedule starts to take definitive shape; Dole Warriors is about to begin.It’s true that I can barely move around now for all the prop weaponry, costume parts, set pieces and production materials that are in ever increasing piles on all sides, and I couldn’t be more anxious to get started.Our first shoot date is now confirmed for this coming Monday and although it’s only a small scene it marks the start of part of the process many people love the most: Production. This is the part where everyone involved with the project gets to step into their designated roles as cast and crew, and we get to make what has previously just been words on a page come to life. It’s going to be a very busy month as the 7-8 production days will span over March and April, and will come to an end April 17th, when post-production will begin.
The current task at hand is preparation! Prop-making, costume finishing, screen tests, rehearsals and a whole lot of scheduling, and I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated via the blog week by week with pictures and videos and info as principle photography goes on.
To start it off, here’s a few sneak-preview snaps of a few bits of prop and costume for the upcoming shoot.
Be sure to check in next week for a quick look at week 1 of production…
