Another Cancellation

filmWe thought that we were finally going to start filming last Friday, but it was for not. It’s starting to be a theme for The Exit Bag. The old adage “hurry up and wait,” seems to fit, but hopefully we will get kicked off soon.

We are doing the last of the three still shots tomorrow. This one will feature Craig Gibson as a jumper.  The stills will be used when our hero, Philip Canton, is searching the internet on suicide methods. We want to thank Craig in advance for letting us bloody him up and take some pics.

Second Suicide Stills Shot

Last night we shot the second of three shoots of suicide scene stills.  These will be used when our hero, Philip Canton, is searching the Net for suicide methods. This shoot was of a slit-wrist suicide in a bathtub. We got some really great shots. Thanks to Jesse Sanders, who let us come to his house, bloody him up and take some pics.

Production has Begun

We are happy to report that we are FINALLY in the production phase of The Exit Bag.  After a few false starts due to illness and other delays, last Saturday we took still photos for what will become our hero’s Internet search for suicide methods.

IMG_4054 (2)Our first victim… Kevin Maxwell. He will be the gun suicide in our movie. We worked a couple of hours to get the scene location and back wall brain splatter dialed in. Then we went to work on Kevin.  This is what Kevin looked like just before we blew his brains out. So what does he look like in the movie? You will have to watch The Exit Bag to find out.

Stay tuned as we continue to put The Exit Bag together.

Bummer Alert

crossI guess it wouldn’t be a real film if there weren’t any delays. Our scheduled shoot for tomorrow has been postponed. The flu epidemic that is sweeping the country has claimed one of our own. The actor playing Philip, the lead in our film, has the flu. After waiting for five months to start shooting, I guess a little longer wait won’t hurt anything. Get well soon Mike Pickering! We need you healthy so you can kill yourself.
