Set: Triste’s House

First shooting day was tough! It had around 110 degrees on location, the heat of our lights made it even worse. Not to mention the humidity. Our clothes were wet from sweating. And everywhere cockroaches. Everywhere. No kidding. Still, we were working like mad. One shot after the other, RJ acting highly professonal as if he had never done anything else in his life.

Still: After 10 hours of shooting, we were all about to break down. But we had to keep going. The whole time Constanze was outside, taking care of the rest of our equipment. When it got dark, she started coming in every once in a while to ask how much longer we were gonna shoot. I got pretty mad on that because I felt she was putting pressure on us while we were working our asses off (sorry). After 17 hours of shooting we were ready for the last shot, which was gonna be outside. So, we took our equipment and went outside. Right then I realized why Constanze had been so nervous all that time: Around fifty people from the neighborhood, all tattooed and dressed in Dickies, tanktops, bandanas, with dogs,…had come together in front of Triste’s house, and were staring at Constanze who was anxiously standing amidst the crowd, avoiding eye-contact as good as she could. Right then Triste came up to me, explaining everything. He had called his homies to shoot a Rap Music Video. He thought that since he already had a camera and light equipment at his house, he could just take the chance. Wow…already 17 hours of shooting. Well, so it became 18 hours. But to be honest: It was worth it.

Something on the side: Thanks RJ. 18 hours on your first shooting day, along with unbelievable temperatures and still no complaining. That’s highly professional. I really give you credit on that!
