This weekend (March 9th and 10th), we shot scenes that take place at the government facility where the main character works. These scenes included Greg Wait (playing Eric Smith), Charles Allen (playing Ian Tesh), and our newest cast member, Kim Parker (playing Angela Drake). Kim was cast after another actress had to drop out of the role. Kim rose to the challenge and was able to give a great performance, despite only having been cast 2 days before!

We shot several scenes with Greg Wait and Charles Allen on Friday night, then got up early the next morning to begin shooting again on Saturday.
On Saturday the crew was on set from 9 AM to 3:30 AM the next day.
All I can say is that the crew that I am working with is amazing. Lisa Laurene, Matt Harris, Paul Frateschi, and Megan Bridges all did amazing work and showed amazing dedication. When we finished on Saturday we had shot about 20 percent of the script in two days.

Our actors did an amazing job as well. Several times on Saturday we did one-shot scenes (the entire scene is from one angle, and usually lasts for more than 20-30 seconds). Greg Wait, Charles Allen, and Kimberly Parker all accepted the challenges and worked late into the night in order to get the scenes done.
