Sweat & Tears (W2:D1)

Today was a tough day. We arrived at 7:30am on location ready to go and a piece of our camera equipment, no so much. It had all sorts of issues with particles inside it and I had to take it apart and try and figure out the issue, find the particles, get them out, reattach and check again. I wont shed all the details but basically 3/4 of our day was spent with me in a chair hunched over this thing trying to get it ready to go. We started shooting at 1pm and got 3 shots by the end of the day. The first shot we did took 18 takes but it was an incredible shot, the best we've gotten yet. For some reason we have been attempting and completing shots with complexity not normally seen in films of this budget. I'm very thankful of everyone for being patient today and dealing with my near breakdown, haha.

At the end of the day, the shots looked good, God was faithful, our equipment worked, and all was well. It was also a nice temp today so that made things a bit easier. Tomorrow we go into some very difficult stuff, all of you out there pray that tomorrow begins quickly and progresses swiftly.

Also thanks to all for supporting us during this journey. We received a donation to our Post-Production fund all the way from Italy today! Thats quite a distance for someone to know about this project. Keep praying for us!
