    We had a really fine day shooting on Whidbey Island today. Norm Sanders joined us last night and we were up early to begin getting shots with him while Vienna was having hair/makeup done. Norm is such a fabulous guy and a truly talented actor. The whole project hinges upon Norm's character and he was simply superb today.

    Bullis discovers the zip line:






    Mark and Tim laugh as Disjecta curses at his inability to get a smooth move out of the IndiSlider with his frozen fingers:






    This is Huckleberry Hill -- where we're staying. An amazing place







    Lost in thought, the director ponders his next move:

    Some more BTS:

    "Another Stella, Mr. Johnson?" (Bullis ran the kitchen at Huckleberry Hill like Patton in France)




    In the epic struggle between man and piano ... there will always be a woman taking pictures:




    Shooting in Washington in February guarantees occasional rain delays:




    As much as I love to give him sh*t (hey, he started it first), this man can shoot like a mutha. Disjecta has truly become one of my favorite people on the planet.




    We were deathly afraid of losing Norm into the pond early in the shoot as he had in opaque contact VFX lenses and, let's face it, he ain't the most graceful chap on the West Coast. Thus, Bullis pulled "Norm wrangling duty" and kept a firm grip on Norm during closeup shots as he dipped his hands into the water.




    One last image of the shoot at Double Bluffs beach:

    Hey Mark, just out of curiosity, were there any permitting requirements on that beach, or could you guys just wing it there?

    As you might guess, given this was a Fat Monster production, there was lots of nervous looking over one's shoulders on this shoot. Our normal operating procedure is sort of a "dine-and-dash" philosophy (Um, officer, my permit's in the car. Just hold on and we'll all go get it...." In this case, though, having a piano on the beach made retreat problematical.

    Fortunately, we had several factors working in our favor. First, the south end of Whidbey Island is fiercely independent and rebellious (artists and eco-activists in heavy supply). Hell, look at the incredible edifice we stayed in (three giant hexagons crazily put together like a poor man's Winchester Mystery House - Building Codes? We don't need no steenking building codes.) Second, the beach we were shooting on fronts a strip of private property owned by a guy we schmoozed and later learned had been Microsoft Employee #84. When we got his blessing to drag the piano across his property to the beach front we figured we were probably going to be ok without a permit.

    Just this morning as I went to take Vienna to hair/makeup I was reminded that Tim and I agreed a month ago that the official Fat Monster slogan shall be: "We depend upon the kindness of strangers and the science of happy accidents."

    Gotcha, I was wondering how stringent the local governments were up there. Anymore if it's brooklyn, I just go out and do it. Even when I've had permits, no one has ever come up to me to ask about them. I am a little more guarded when I might get others in trouble, like a night club we shot in front of recently. But...

    It's a gorgeous location. I used to live up there though and Whidbey is so beautiful.
