Juan Espinosa, Mike Pickering and Ron Hervey met yesterday to work out the details of the bag. In The Exit Bag, Mike Pickering’s character, Philip, decides on the helium bag method after researching several ways to commit suicide. We tried a couple different bags, but had little success on keeping them inflated. We also had worries about Mike doing the activities in the script and the risk of carbon dioxide poisoning. We are going to try a couple of ideas, as we push the scenes with the bag on to the back of the shooting schedule.
We plan on filming one of the scenes this coming Saturday (PRODUCTION STARTED – finally). We will let you know how it goes.
