And quite incredibly, after all this planning and preparing, the shoot is suddenly over, completely on schedule despite the many problems that typically plague a film set – ranging from differing weather conditions, too many airplanes flying overhead, delays, and as always, not having enough people, time, and money. And yet we didn’t have to take a single extra shooting day that had been held in reserve; call it luck or exquisite planning, the weather conditions, for the most part, were perfect. A dramatic scene? We had stormy weather. A calm scene? The clouds cleared although the forecast had predicted rain. It came to the point where we started to joke why we had even brought a wind machine with us – compared to what Mother Nature gave us, the wind machine was a small ventilator at best.
At this point, I would like to thank everyone for their great work and efforts; without you all, this film would not have been possible!
