This day's filming included a scene from the very beginning of the film and another from much later in the film both involving my friend Craig and in the setting of my Dad's office. Since we used my Dad's own office for Slim's office set, we used my Dad's associate's office for Dr. Colossal. It required virtually no set decoration since it already looked like someone's personal office.
For the interview scene, we had two cameras. Because of the size of the office, there was no way to get Tubba and Dr. Colossal in the same shot, so we used a reverse shot instead, as if each shot was what the opposite character would be seeing. We then moved the two cameras and got close ups on Greg, who was a second interviewer and a shot of Craig and Greg together so they could exchange looks.
The next scene we filmed was a single shot of Craig speaking on the phone to Slim (a scene that was filmed early in the same summer). I would read Slim's lines from off camera so Craig had something to respond to on the phone. He did a great job reacting to a phone conversation that really wasn't happening.
As far as I can remember, this day of filming marked the last for the summer of 2006 as school started up again.
