Re: "Polaris"



One of my favorite angles on the location. DS9Sega pointed it out when we scouted and I was determined to use it somewhere.

The "favorite angle" Dennis mentioned is what the camera is pointed at in this pic. I'm at the upper right with the bullhorn calling out directions to the background players across what we called the "crater".

Re: "Polaris"



There's always a good reason to post a picture of Susan. Also, our gallant crew - from left to right that would be Carl Leonard, Doug Caprette, Maurice Molyneaux, Romel Punsal, Alex Ibrahim and Cynthia Lin.

Management wishes to assure the public than no such scene actually occurs in our film. Thank you.

What you don't see is the plastic and blankets on the ground that make it posisble for them to kneel on rocky terrain without ruining the costumes.

Re: "Polaris"



Here we have a 110 degree F heat index (not shown).

Big rectangular thing on the left reflects more sunlight onto the actors.

Shockingly enough, turns out it also reflects more heat onto the actors.

Crispy!

How did you keep them from sweating right through their makeup?

Re: "Polaris"

We didn't. Our indefatigable makeup artist touched up the makeup between each shot and in several cases had to completely redo it.

We also set up the schedule to try to do dialogue scenes that required close camera work with the actors early in the cooler part of the day, and the action stuff which tended to be shot wider later in the day. There was not a lot of running and jumping involved in any event, thank gods.

Those rocks look appropriately alien-looking. Not that I'm an expert on what alien rocks should look like, but you know....
