We got a leather apron in the mail last week, for use with a minor character we'll be filming this weekend. You book fans can probably guess who it's going to be, based solely on the fact that he's wearing a leather apron. Anyway, it's a brand new, beautiful apron... Which obviously would never do. A real person is supposed to have worn this in his workshop.

And then after all that, we still got to play with fire. Sean broke out the matches and he and I took turns stabbing flaming sticks into the thing. We had some rubbing alcohol with us that we sprayed around to get it to burn a little better. Then we used the discarded matchsticks to get ourselves a real blaze going.

In other news, we're continually working on getting the film assembled. We had an ADR session with Marie a couple weeks back, and we're scheduling another one soon. Toward that end I've been editing the various Witch scenes so I know which takes I want her matching to, and the pacing and energy of the moments, which will inform her performance. Like I said before; sorta boring to read about.
