Breaking Ground on Gemma & The Bear

December 11, 2014 § Leave a comment

This past weekend we began principal photography on my web series, Gemma & The Bear!  It was so exciting to finally arrive at the moment where the project crossed over from being completely theoretical to becoming a reality.  Our cast and crew were amazing – our challenge was to shoot ALL of the scenes that take place in an office in just one weekend (we’re filming all six episodes in our first season at once, according to location, to save time and money).  Not counting clean-up and set-up, I figure we filmed for about 28 hours between those two days.  I’m still exhausted, but it’s that great kind of good-feeling tired that you get from working really hard on exactly the thing you want to be working on . . . and feeling like the effort produced good results.

If you’d like a teeny peek, check out the new promo video our director cut from some of the weekend’s footage.

We’ve got two more days of filming coming up next Wednesday and Thursday so while I go work on pre-production of those, here are some photos of this past weekend.
