As of today, we've blown through 6 days of our planned 18-day shoot inside of the lab set. (That's 1/3 for you folks following at home) Barring any more major setbacks, or days for reshoots, we're basically on schedule.
How about a video, right up front like? It's just below... click play to watch.
So what did we do in 6 days? We roped in a hoard of background artists... or "extras"... dressed up our cold lab set with some warm glowing light from a bunch of hanging orbs, and had a party to unveil the worlds first time travel machine. Dean Foster from Miskatonic University led the festivities... our now fully grown whiz kids ran a demonstration of the portal they designed, while Larry Fincher of Science Journal America and other members of the press watched.

But what would a movie be without someone messing up the whole shooting match? Some crazed nutbag broke into the lab after hours, strapped a bomb-vest to himself, and went nuts. Oh, what a world.

All in all, it's been a productive week and a half. Chock full of window cleaning, chamber dismantling, and awkwardly uncomfortable camera shots.

|Said tricky shot... the dolly needed some extra room out the back of the Event Chamber.|
|Gus and one pile of extras.|
|Genesis. The first working time machine.|
|My rectched handwriting and doodles. Made slightly more retched for film purposes.|

|Jason and Gus were very proud of this Miskatonic seal... sadly it will barely be in the final film.|
