The Two Jokes and No Spoilers!

Last Wednesday, we shot what the makers of Blood Car are calling the final, end-all be-all pickup shots for the film. To date, it was our most expensive day of shooting. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you anything about what was shot. Generalities will have to suffice. If I revealed anything, I would have to preface it with this... SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER!!, and I'm not prepared to do that.

Our schedule consisted of two camera setups, one shot each, one joke each, one laugh each(We hope.) least in conception. Wrong. The first shot I'm not qualified to discuss as I wasn't present during the filming, but for the second I was there and now that I think about it, there are a solid two jokes in that one shot. And I'm not trying to create any sort of buzz around these two shots, but I just feel like I'd be telling you the ending if I said anything.

And believe it or not, I think what was done last Wednesday helped bring the story of Archie Andrews to a satisfying close. Sitting here, nearly two weeks later, I can feel closure for Archie. I really think he needed this. So, to the makers of Blood Car, Archie thanks you.

In a blood related note, the American Red Cross has informed me that I am one pint away from reaching the 4 gallon donation mark for whole blood.

And if you're wondering, Blood Car has officially been submitted to the Sundance Film Festival.
