Location Scouting

28 Mar

Wow, I’ve been way behind on this blogging thing. Sorry, my 10 beautiful followers. By the way, you should get the word out to your friends about Only Joni. I mean, aren’t you enjoying this blog so far? Don’t be selfish!

Anyhow, as I’m stepping into this new realm of filmmaking (basically the producer side of it, which I’m starting to enjoy) one thing I’m starting to get a love for is location scouting. Seriously, the walks, seeing your vision come to life for the first time. It’s quite the fascinating experience.

Until you’re two miles into a trail trying to find your vision. Then, things get tiring…and interesting. Lemme tell the story first with pictures.

Here’s me before location scouting last Wednesday:

It all started with this sign:

Yep, we should have seen potential problems from the start, I know. At first, it was cool. We walked where wildlife hangs out, went over a cool bridge towering above high grass fields….

But then we started walking into deeper deeper feet of white sand. Mind you, I–the only one who wasn’t smart enough to change into boots after Directing for Film class, wore these to location scout:

I know, I know but every time we’ve gone to shoot field scenes, I’ve been rocking these bad boys:

Well, a shoe really similar. I couldn’t find my exact shoe on Google search and taking selfies of my shoes?

Anyhow, it all started off pretty well as I said. We were actually having a lot of fun:

Well, some of us were having too much fun vvv

Wanna know how/when things started going awry?

Be on the look out for pt. 2 soon! Promise it’ll be worth the read.

P.S. I would’ve told the full story but I’ve got tons of screenwriting and speech homework to finish.
