On-Set – ‘Unmasked’

Just got off another three day thesis show as boom operator. The director is a big Sam Raimi fan, so Unmasked was about superheros. It was probably one of the neatest sets I’ve been on.

  • On the first day Doctor Squid and Lighting Man had a showdown in a house, with the hero smashing through a wall. We were able to film in an empty town house and production design built a fake wall. When you first walked in it looked totally natural, until you went around the corner. The hero was thrown through the wall for one of the coolest stunts I’ve seen (and heard) live.
  • Some other locations we filmed at were an alley and rooftop. Mad dash on the roof top.

Crazy storm with lightening. Pushed shooting stuf. Helicopter. Way cool.
