What Writers do on Set

Do you ever wonder what writers do on set? You know, their work is done, they've written the script, time to sit back and watch it all happen right? Wrong. If you are Pete Fromm, you sit back every now and then. Sometimes you get after the director, sometimes you hassle the talent. Sometimes, you even teach the crew how to throw rocks and then get them all to do it at once. Hmmm.... maybe we should start a new crew position for a guy like Pete: Set Jester. He was so good at keep everyone entertained!

Ok, he did some writing right before we started shooting. He earned his keep. And, the addition of having his two sons on set was great. They became indespensable for standing in and working and being body doubles. What a deal.

Christine shot these stelthy photos of Pete behind the scenes. She captured the essence of the writer in his element.

Looking Back - Thanks Vitamin Water!

I was looking back at photos from the shoot. There were so many cameras on set, it is no surprise that I keep seeing new pics all the time. This series of images gives you a little insight to the crazyness and boredom that can make the crew go sideways. Of course, there was very little time for being bored! Our creative team of photographers managed to find some interesting subject matter and a little time to actually snap a shot or two.
This particular set is from my fiance, Christine McBride. (oh yes, fiance...that's another story) She was out to portray our sponsor, Vitamin Water, in a realistic fasion on set. She tried to show it in all the different settings she could find.A big shout out to Virginia LaForte for her support of Dry Rain through the donation of Vitamin water for the cast and crew. The thing I love about Virginia is she is a make it happen kind of woman. She saw a need and just called us up and said where can I drop ship a bunch of Vitamin Water. She just did it and took charge. Thanks for helping us out Virginia. And, btw, Vitamin Water was a big hit on set!

Check out Tom's site

Tom Taylor, location soundman for Dry Rain, has compiled a nice set of images from Dry Rain. Check out his site and go to the current projects page. Bonus: you get to see a photo of Tom and Snoop. That's pretty dope, Tom.
This image of Tom's is called: "Losing Light" As he points out on his website, it was about 3pm and it was getting dark! On a hot August day in Montana! That was all due to the fact that there was a huge forrest fire raging about 40 miles away dumping smoke and ask on us!
