Brendan Kelly wrote a very nice article about how we are shooting our little $20,000 movie alongside Brad Pitt and David Fincher's $20,000,000 Montreal shoot
for THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON.
For the sake of drama he made out that I'm irked by the shoot, but actually, I'm jazzed any time a major movie shoots in Montreal.
But we did have to move our exteriors by a day to avoid being crushed by the giant production shooting literally around the corner. And that nearly put us into a thunderstorm!
We have no idea where they're shooting tomorrow. Just so long as it isn't in Place Jacques Cartier (where there is also a crane in the mornings moving things up onto a room, loudly) or in front of Cafe Helios (which is next door to the Montreal Sweets Festival).
Actually we're doing pretty well considering the sweets festival and the giant production and the transit strike... say a prayer for us!

I have ripped out the still beating heart of a studio exec on a sacrificial alter, today, in your honour, Alex. May it bring you good luck.
I know you're fibbing, Kelly. They don't have hearts.
That is funny stuff. Wishing you great shooting!
