Day 63 - 24th SHOOTING DAY: WHERE IS THE DAD, WHERE IS THE CAR, WHERE IS THE EGG?

Today we went back to the house of the two mexican ladies to film some more scenes – of course not without having some troubles. First problem: we need a Dad for the scene, but somehow forgot about him… So the ladies started to call all their neighbours to see if someone has time to come out in the movie (actually that’s how easily a carreer can start, but not that you think we are already totally desparate and take anyone, the guy doesn’t have to say a word and just stands in the background…). After an hour of calling we really did get someone.

Next problem: one of the actresses forgot her costume at home, so Barbara went with her to her house to pick it up. There she explained all the family pictures to Barbara for more than half an hour. Pretty interesting, but when you are already pressed for time not really helpful. Third problem (or challenge how Haake would say it): the car ride. Therefore see the video:

The rest of the scenes happend without any more incidents (putting aside the fact that Barbara forced me to crawl behind an old fridge and to pull out the kabel from the electrical outlet while shooting a scene. I got an electric shock, but couldn’t cry as we were filming…).

What I liked most was the scene with the egg. The Mexicans have this crazy superstition that you can eliminate a bad spirit with the help of an egg. By rubbing off the body with the egg and then to put it into a glass of water under the bed, you can get rid of it. Really crazy…
