Coming Up pick-up shoot No. 2

June 20th, 2011

This basket ball fight scene pick-up was originally scheduled on 6/5. It got canceled due to the weather in SF. We finally got it done yesterday. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. It was sunny and warm. More importantly we got all the shots we needed to pick up. The new Steadycam guy Ben Casias was very good with his camera work. The shots came out very good. Here’re some stills.

Coming Up pick-up shoot

By Shaun

We did a quick pick-up shoot last weekend in SF. The weather couldn’t be any better and the city was friendly to us. We had a skeleton crew of 8 people. There were 6 shots and about 15 takes total. Started around 11am and wrapped up at 2pm. The location and the prop car look great in those shots. Check them out.

CYC fundraising gala screening

By Shaun

March 11th, 2011

“Coming Up” short film was screened at the annual CYC fundraising gala last night in San Francisco. It was a fun event. It’s the first time we had that many viewers for this 2 month project. The film was well received. It’s not perfect because we still need some pick-ups for the film, but it’s a great achievement for everyone who involved in this project. We’re going to schedule a weekend of pick-ups to get all the missing pieces in the film. Then we can submit to film festivals. Here’s a CYC gala photo of “Coming Up” crew, film editor Jesse Kerman, screenwriter Christine Lee, and director Shaun Au.

A quick title

By Shaun

March 4th, 2011

“Coming Up” is due for a debut on March 10 at a fund raising event organized by Community Youth Center. We need a simple film title for the film. So here’s a quick design. Ideally, we’d like to shoot this title in live action. It would be cool if we have one of the bball kids spray paint the title on the wall, then picks up the ball and dribbles away.
