Finding Carter Shoot Day 4

Started today in the cold outside shooting two exterior scenes. Atlanta gets cold? Apparently Atlanta gets cold. Especially if you’re out there just before the sun comes up.

We moved back to the stages to film what’s known as “poor man’s process” – a way to shoot driving scenes without actually driving. It uses rear projection – projecting a moving image behind the vehicle – and filming the driver and/or passengers in the car. The technique has been used for just about as long as cinema has existed, but the quality has so drastically improved with digital and high definition technology. The production scheduled a handful of scenes from other episodes to be done all at once, including one scene from the episode I’m directing.

Tomorrow is a big day – lots of scenes mostly on the Wilson house set. Hopefully we’ll emerge unscathed.
