A World Within a City

Posted on June 7, 2008

A World Within a City 4As I get ready to DP this Sunday by box building (for lights) and color temperature fretting, I decided to stop by one of the other sets that was filming today.

I knew they were shooting in a park near downtown. What I didn’t know was this little park had a lost forest.

As I walked in I would find signs of a film set, but no camera. Deeper and deeper I went, through a muddy trail (that my guide slipped on), down a small stream, over some logs until finally I was at the set.

Everyone seemed to know the trail was treacherous, and were wearing rain boots.

I’m not entirely sure what the movie is about, but I know it’s fantasy. It even managed to find a lost world in a small city park.
