We are working on a ~30 minute movie. An episode really; hopefully the first of many. D wrote the script a few years ago, took a year or so to get equipment, and then got some actors and props.
The inertia of progress seems to be directly correlated with time. Summer 2015 was start of production and now, nearing fall 2016, there are about 12 brief shots left. A lot of the editing is done.
A couple weeks ago we reshot two quick parts of the alley scene. It may be as much as three seconds of movie between. There was a good bit of time taken up with back up footage and waiting for trains and loud vehicles to pass.
It was one guy holding an amulet from two different angles.
It took an hour to shoot.
