The End. And the beginning.
After eight, seemingly endless days of production, Fugue has officially wrapped. This was an ambitious project from the beginning and after over a year of pre-production it has been quite a journey. I knew this project would be tough but I didn’t expect it to be challenging on the this high of a level. Not only was it the hardest thing I’ve ever done as a director, it was also the hardest thing I’ve ever done as a human being.
PreproductionPreproduction was challenging enoughPreproduction was challenging enough,Pre-production was challenging enough, but production was double the stress, double the pressure, and double the exhaustion. I literally didn’t know if I was going to make it to the finish line. The problems on set were never ending.
Each day was a roller coaster and each day was an incredible classroom. My crew was there to help me when I was struggling. I had a fantastic crew of extremely talented people and inspiring human beings. There is no way I would’ve survived this film without them.
After we wrapped, I took the following week to do nothing but sleep. All day everyday; I didn’t want to get up. Finally, I started getting up before noon and now I’m just about back on my feet.
I’ve been preparing myself for the next mammoth challenge of this film, post-production.
Over the summer, as I am finishing the film, we have some insane behind the scenes content we will be sharing with you thanks to my friend Stephen Littmann. He not only did DIT work on this film, but also managed and shot most of the BTS.
We are also working with Hurlbut Visuals on an awesome series of articles about what all I learned from my failures and the great successes we had with my accomplishments throughout.
Keep an eye out, I’ll be back shortly.
