Behind the scenes 300x225   Behind the scenes videoThe making of Jenny’s Book of Twilight was definitely very long and exhausting. At least for me.

Writing began somewhere in 2010, we shot the movie in the spring of 2011; editing, music and special effects took the longest, about nine months in two parts, and finally I finished the movie in July 2012.

The shooting took place in March 2011. Given that a good number of the cast was from out of town and even out of state (starting with our lead, Caryssa), we had to really make everything happen in just two weeks with a couple of pick up days.

It was definitely hectic and crazy, we didn’t have much time to stand around. We had to have the camera rolling. We only did one or two takes of most things, more takes only of important scenes.

There was something for almost every day, I think with one unwanted day off. I never in my life was so tired, though I should mention that on top of the crazy shooting schedule I still had to work at the restaurant full time, while my pregnant honey was going to college during the day and studied at home. Talk about house chores neglected, haha…

Anyway, of course the original schedule changed constantly and in the end we even had to leave out a couple of scenes, which now I am happy about. One of those scenes would have been a concert scene, but the band cancelled last minute, and now I am just happy we didn’t have to worry about shooting that part. Luckily it wasn’t crucial for the story, and we could use that time to catch up with some other footage.

Even though the shoot was so crazy, exhausting and at times nerve-racking, it was still a lot of fun too, one of the best times in my life. Being on the set, seeing you story, the fruit of your imagination come alive in front of you is an experience that I would not want to exchange for anything. The energy on the set is so great, not to mention the friends you make, the piece of art you create together. And we laughed so much too. It was definitely a time to always remember and hopefully with this short behind the scene video you can be a part of it too, even if just for a few minutes.
