When you just have to give up and go home. (If you can!)
Any time we are making a video something will always go wrong. That is expected. But that has never stopped us before. Even if videos have to be cut short or re-edited we have always managed to get it finished.
Not this time!
We planned a new video, a Wolf Creek/Ghost story idea, where we were trying to make a semi-serious film, something a bit different for us. The script was written, car packed and a location chosen.
We 'kind of' finished one scene when car troubles stopped us filming. The area we were in gets locked up over night as well, so we were on a deadline to get the car going and get out of there.
We always intended to go back, but since then both girls have had their hair cut and coloured and one has had her braces removed! If we do go back we will have to start fresh, maybe with a different idea.
It was disappointing to have to give up like this. I'm guessing others here have also had to call it quits? Did you just just reschedule and re-shoot at a later date? I always find it sad to have completed what looks like some good shots and know I will not be able to use them.
This clip is the one scene we (almost) finished. I did get around to colour grading it to see how it would have looked, but the sound effects and voices are not complete. I don't mind how it was starting to look.
