Behind the Scenes at Last Weekend’s Big Hospital Shoot

This shoot was so epic, I didn't even Instagram this picture; it's lit by the gusto of the cast and crew alone.

After last Saturday’s demanding 12 hour shoot at SIUC’s Student Health Center, we are happy to report that we have a major group of scenes shot and ready to go!

With this group of scenes in the can, we have made a major dent in our production schedule; we can only hope that our upcoming shoots go as smoothly as last weekend’s did.

We are now roughly one-third of the way through shooting, just about on schedule to have the film finished by mid May. More updates will be posted as we progress through the remaining shoots.

Want to take a gander at the cast and crew in action? Check out the slideshow below. It chronicles the events of the day’s shoot. Keep an eye out for our makeshift wheelchair/skateboard dolly rig, some excellent makeup work, and a few of the film’s producers pulling double duty as crew members.

SPOILER ALERT (kind of):

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at a rehearsal of one of the major scenes in Story of a Sleeping Man.

Finally, if you haven’t done so already, please check out our Kickstarter page.

We’ve got 18 days to go, and are almost halfway to our $3000 goal!  Show it to your friends, family, and wealthy relatives. We’ve updated our “rewards” section, too; now, donating just $1 will get you listed on the “Backers” section of this site (once funding is completed).

As always, thanks very much for your support and please “like” us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @SleepingManSIU for up-to-the-minute updates!
