Locations, Locations, Locations (part 2)

August 27, 2012

Continuing the post about locations from the other day,  again, I can’t stress enough – you need the time to find the locations and work out the kinks. Or to not find the location…

We needed four comedy clubs for Sympathy Pains – one major club that’s in a lot of the film, and three others that Danny appears in. We were casting a number of comedians in the film, so we reached out to them, and one of them got us in touch with management at the Loony Bin in Little Rock (and vouched for us). They’re closed on Sundays and Mondays and let us take the place over for those days.  Since we were in the “big city” we used that as an opportunity to reach out to Little Rock media, and that’s how we got our channel 7 news piece.

For the other clubs, we talked about building a backdrop for each of the three clubs, but decided instead to build them digitally. Scott Meador (our visual effects expert) had his classes build some concepts last semester, and we’ll be using some of those, combined with green screen footage that we shot of Chris Fritzges.

Of course, we had Scott on set with us for the green screen shots to make things work as easily as possible on set and for his team in post.

I’ll do one more post about a location we were looking for when we shot Luigi’s, and our final solution.
