I visited the set of the second day of shooting for "Sisu", Chrystene Ells film about Tom Sukanen. Today they were in Estlin, a small town about 15 minutes south of here, shooting scenes in which old Tom, delusional and near death in a hospital, sees a vision of his mother he'd not seen in decades. It's being shot on a 24p HDV camera that the NMSL recently acquired. The weather was cool but the clouds were creating interesting patterns and pools of glorious light that should really pop.
