“I’m so proud of you darling!”

And that is a wrap! After an exhausting three days of shooting (and countless days of pre-production), My Boy is finally in the can! I had the absolute pleasure working with some excellent actors, and an amazing crew down near Mornington Peninsula.

Here are a few production stills:

Forbidden Love: Khan Oxenham as James and Emily Milledge as Jen

Happy birthday sweetheart: James and Mother (Janet Watson Kruse)

“Who needs a dolly?”

Shooting in the bedroom

Surprisingly delicious…

“If you’ve got a car, you’ve got a dolly!”

The first couple of days were quite smooth, and I was really happy. Things got a little hairy toward the end of the second day, as we were running late, and had shot around 15oft too much, leaving less than 350ft for the final, most intensive day (nine minutes!). I worked around our stock shortage on the morning of the third day, cutting what I could. It was a truly painful process (hough to its credit, it resulted in a few creative shots). I was rewarded in the evening for my spartan use of stock with absolute knock-out performances from my two lead actors (not to mention my super taleted crew!) and I had the stock left to capture it all perfectly. I cannot wait to see the final scene.
This has been a wonderful, stressful, crazy last few weeks, but I think it was worth it. I gues I will find out how it all looks when I get it back from telecine!
