We begun our work week after too little sleep over the weekend, so dragging our asses back to studio on Monday felt extremely hard – especially since the call time was 8 in the morning, or something along those lines.
We continued what we had started on Friday, which is always hard if you have to split a scene in two – even worse, if you have weekend in between, because after that, everything has been erased from your memory. But we sure jumped back on the wagon and were on the roll quite quickly – but we had a *lot* to accomplish, and every shot we did was of very technical nature – wires, squibs, firing guns… no easy shot, no easy moment and no easy way out. We just had the crunch those scenes, no matter the fact we were running out of time constantly, and although I thought it would’ve been easy for me to do since every actor had a bulky spacesuit and a helmet on – you’d be surprised how much acting is involved when the actor’s face can’t be seen.
Today, I’m introducing you one of the Heroes of Iron Sky – Peter McLennan, the 1st Assistant Director. His job is to run the set, schedule the shoot and call the roll – among many others. Here you can see him at work:
