The almighty slate!
Cinematographer, Joel and the director, Jonathan, discuss the upcoming shot.
It's customary for the director to choke out the property master...isn't it?
Jonathan, our fearless leader, is surrounded by Ninjas on one of the last days of principal photography.
Actor extraordinaire, Noah Segan (Looper), shows off his costume on our first day of shooting.
Actress, Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), poses for a picture with one of my friends and PA for the day, Ashley.
Olivia is affectionate with her man, Evan, even when he's covered in fake blood. What a great girlfriend!
Our friend Aaron's daughter was at the Coatwolf HQ that night and decided she wanted to be a part of the lighting test.
Evan at the cabin, always working on some DIY project. Usually involving something dangerous.
Joel was more than just the DP, he played a character as well. This is him getting his fake blood applied by the head of the SFX makeup department, Hugo Villasenor.
Joel just has that swagger.
It was definitely past everyone's bedtime that morning. Two over night shoots in a row.
Diesel, the 2nd AC, making sure the RED camera is ready to shoot.
Skyler, the key grip, is getting ready to push a dolly while Diesel pulls focus.
Apparently, when at higher altitudes, Diesel turns into a mountain man and becomes enthralled with weapons.
Clayton is showing me his "tiger face".
Clayton was the man in charge of this specific picture car, on this specific day. Even after his amazing performance in the film, Coldwater, he isn't too cool to work his ass off behind the camera.
The wardrobe master, Alexa, was always running around for someone. She barely took the time to let me take this photo.
The magnificent ladies of the art department and queens of the art truck.
She has no fear, especially not from chainsaws.
My favorite Steadicam operator in the world. Tommy is the coolest!
No steadicam makes Tommy a dull boy.
Rosa is applying a scar to one of the young actors on set.
The ladies of the makeup department.
The three musketeers, taking a nap during a shooting day, near the beach. I guess the ocean breeze just makes people tired.
Scott looks down from the second story as the brawl begins.
Ryan, showing off his badass costume for the "street brawl" scene.
Our 2nd AD, looking mighty fine in his Coatwolf tee.
Property master, Casey is hanging out with the director's assistant/grip, Matt and camera department slave, Zach. It was a fun day at the pier!
Attack of the mustache ninja a.k.a. Matt.
Zach and Billy, always trying to look like they were doing something important.
Billy, babysitting the RED camera...don't drop it!
One of my favorite grips, John!
Our location sound man, Coop, had to go into the lake to record audio. That called for the removal of his pants. Sacrifices are made for art.
The 2nd 2nd AD, Will and our still photographer and occasional chef, Scott, both had to play "jerks" in a scene at the pier.
Scott, shooting me, shooting Scott.
Jet, the most badass location manager and owner of an amazing dog named Sebastian!
Matt was the ultimate PA and just an overall badass.
Group picture from one of the first days of shooting. I'm sorry to say, I don't remember the guy who is second from the right. He must have just felt the loving embrace of Dave's arm and been hypnotized by Dave's thumbs up.
The ultimate fan experience!
The crew, setting up for a shoot for The Pedro Channel.
Johnny and Zach, as they film one of the least awkward instances of Pedro a.k.a. DJ FUBU talking to people at random.
Our friend and occasional TPC camera man, Logan Heftel, is filming Pedro walking down the street with a giant snake around his neck. Nothing odd about that.
What happens when you put a YouTube celebrity, Pedro the crazy Peruvian and a blow-up doll on the same couch? I guess you'll just have to find out by watching the video!
Pedro, making sure we have that low angle shot of Jamie twerking.
Pedro raps in between our model/actress' legs. It wasn't awkward at all...
I don't think she had to act very hard to be grossed out and annoyed by Pedro...he makes that reaction super easy.
Pedro in costume for one of the TPC shoots.
Pedro in costume as Eugene for the Apple Watch/Techgasm short.
One of the earliest shots of Pedro, rehearsing for our very first short together, "Stony".
