Sweet Space Suit: Day 1
Posted by: Keith on Friday September 24th, 2010 at 16:47

 

Welcome to part one of a BTS memory trip from the shooting of the Kickstarter project "Sweet Space Suit", (which you should have watched, and hopefully supported by now).  If you don't know what it's about yet, what we've done is create a short piece to promote and raise funding to shoot a horror/sci-fi piece inspired by the video game "Dead Space".  Our no-budget concept:  show the limitations of no budget, and try to inspire backers to help us out.

We shot the piece over three nights, with most of the time each night being spent squeezing my shapely form into the sweet space suit of the title.  The first night, we shot the corridor sequence.  I don't want to give too much away, but the passage I was stalking was not actually on board a space station.  It was done with Movie Magic*.  Pretty much if you sprinkle around a little bit of that and throw in a cameo by the Tony-award nominated Dustin Gardner**, good things will happen.

No fires were started on set.  Our best guess is that a passing car threw a burning cigarette into our studio window, which led to the ensuing flames that devoured the curtains and most of a couch before we were able to get things under control.  But the important thing is that we were able to get the smoke detector disabled in time before it went off, and save ourselves from having to pay a resulting fee.  When you work without a budget, you have to think of these things.

Once the smoke cleared and the camera was rolling, it was go time.  After a slight incident in which two stunt men were paralyzed, things went pretty smoothly and we got all the shots we needed.  Unfortunately we had to cut the scenes featuring Bruce Willis, as they simply did not 'flow' with the finished piece, but we thank him for being a good sport, and for telling us some pretty filthy jokes which I simply cannot repeat here.

All in all a fairly typical night's work.

*Movie Magic contains one or more of the following elements: spray paint, glow sticks, improperly arranged furniture/equipment, vacuum cleaner enhancement accessories, cranberry juice transport/delivery system, compressed air, collapsed lungs, and/or sparkly thingies.

**Dustin was nominated for a 'Tony the Tiger' award in a 1991 Frosted Flakes promotion intended for special needs children.  He was later disqualified, in something of a minor scandal.  He prefers not to talk about it.
