By the end of the second day of shooting with these young hooligans (Erik Sirke, Geremy Lague, Stephen Macauley, Matt Ellis, James Lague, and Luke Patterson) on the project "Mighty Morphin Orphan Stories" I am exhausted. It wasn't that many years ago that I could do a twelve hour shoot,drink a litre of water, hit the bed for six hours and do it again. However, those days are gone. Shooting is going well in spite of me. There is good energy and many new gags coming as shooting progresses (although everyone is worried about introducing new plot twists or concepts once forty percent of the film is in the can).
