For all office-type scenes in the movie we're using a book warehouse where June and Ed's roommate work. It's a bit of a stretch, but with no budget you take what you can get. It was kind of fun between takes and shots to go exploring and see what was there. I found everything from treatises on Albanian war to scandalous Asian photography, to "Bed time for the Bitty Bunch". I even found a couple of books to add to my "to-read" list.
Since it was a weekday we had to wait to shoot until after business hours. We're doing the same thing tomorrow to finish up all the office scenes.
We shot the very opening scene to the movie today, and I think it's been one of my favorites. It's a moment where I really got to channel my inner awkwardness and just have some fun.
Also fun: Ed had a little cameo today. There's a scene where I talk to a psychiatrist about my rhyming, and Ed played the shrink. He did a great job. Actually, because of the nature of the character and how he played it, he kind of reminded me a little bit of a muppet. I'm supposed to be pretty serious in the scene and it was kind of hard for me not to laugh at him. But I pulled through.
Lunch = dinner: Little Caesar's Hot-n-ready. And boy were we ready!
Wrap time: 11:00 ish.
