Monterey, CA- I spent this week shooting BTS Behind The Scenes footage for the independent feature "I Melt with You", a low budget independant feature directed by Mark Pellington, written by Glenn Porter.
This preview was shot on a 7D with a Lens Baby by Matt Roe to help get the ball rolling.
There are several factors that make this project extremely unique.
1. The cast is made up of several notable TV and Film Stars including Rob Lowe, Jeremy Piven, Christian McKay and Thomas Jane.
These gentlemen made a decision to do a relationship based independant low budget feature strongly because of the script and Mark Pellington the director.
2. The show is being shot on HDSLR's specifically Canon's 5DMII and the 7D along with a few GoPros.
My job was to cover this unique process that is embracing the new world of being able to shoot fast and light using HDSLR's and how it effects the entire workflow of the set.
I just finished shooting days of footage and my job in the next week is to figure out what I have. Decide with the producers and Thomas Jane what we can and can't release currently.
Once I review the footage I will be catching up with the Cast and Crew in LA to cover the last days of principal photography.
There so many thoughts and angles on this thing. I just sort of want to post this as a warning...lol.
In this new generation of HDSLR's we have seen some amazing things coming from the prosumer community. So what happens when the people that grew up in the industry also embrace the new technology...
I Melt With You
A character driven project that big names attach themselves that allow them to flex some acting muscle. A group of artists and technicians attacking an incredible story...
More later...Need to go shoot a few more things before I take off.
