The following day we wrapped the final opening and exterior scenes with Neil in hobo mode before relocating down to our Hock Shop location cheerfully open and donated by the Hock N’ Shop on Queen Street East (plug, plug).
A week away from shooting.
Locations nailed down and after a possible slight rewrite of the short we might be ready to go on our latest 416filmPenny Saved.
Spent a couple hours with Eric Myles, Pamela Tophen and Pat Williamson hitting the ever reliable Value Village for our costumes. Pat in his always charming way managed to get us a 15% Canada Day discount on our clothing. Then we briefly perused the pawn shop location (Shameless Promotion: The Hock N Shop at 1608 Queen St. E, be nice to them) and perused the outdoor site where our homeless characters reside. The location is under construction but with some possible minor changes to the script we plan to go ahead with our shoot next weekend.
As always, excitement abounds.
We had a plan and have managed to avoid following almost every single step of it.
Eric, Sandy (joining us as cinematographer for the first time) and I wandered out to scout some possible locations for this shoot.
