Ninth Shoot Prep Work

Today's the big day: Sequence E, which starts as an interview and ends... well, you'll just have to see. Suffice to say, we think it's going to be one of the strangest and most invigorating cinematic experiences you'll ever... experience... at the... cinema. Ahem.

The preparation for this shoot has been somewhat extensive; pretty much every rehearsal has devoted a substantial amount of time to this monster. And we think it's going to pay off, big time.

But we've also done some more subtle prep work-- creating the two documents which get the scene started. The chances of the audience glimpsing these documents in any kind of detail in the film are slim to none; all they really need to look like is a resume and a list of questions, respectively.

That said, we decided to have a little fun with it, rather than merely typing gibberish.

First up, here's the list of forty interview questions, only three or four of which will actually be asked in the film. Which ones are they? (Hint: it's not the one about Charlie Brown.)

A more subtle sense of humour is in evidence in Nick's resume, with only a few gags slipped in here and there.

Well, actors should be arriving any moment now. Fingers crossed!
