The film crew has been filming some amazing scenes! Shooting starts early and usually ends in the early morning hours! Our special effects producer, Dave Swartout, is really putting on a show! Can’t wait to see it in the theatre!
Yesterday in the Quad Cities we filmed Buddy and his friends playing football at beautiful Rivermont Collegiate in Bettendorf, IA. Then we were up until midnight filming Buddy Guard the movie at a residence in Moline, IL. Watch out for the ninjas!
My name is Race Terronez. I am 14 years old and son of Angie and James. (I love you Mom and Dad!!!)
I met David (The Writer, Director, and Producer of the Movie) on a Media Camp that he held at my church in June. We made a movie called, the ‘Prodical’. I got a part as the main homeless kid in it. =)
At that point I got very interested in the Movie business. So, I decided that I needed to learn from a man that knew a great deal about movies, David. At first I simply would watch, learn, or/and do. I learned about lighting, about shadows, brightness, etc. Which, then, will come with the camera. So, with the camera, I learned about gain, focus, and zoom. I then learned about head room and the types of shots. Then in the few parts I acted in, I learned the basics of poster, speech, facial acting, and speech “control”. Then (my favorite thing) editing!!! I learned about cutting clip, importing, exporting, fades, jumpshots, etc. I love editing.
So, after all that, David asked me to help out on the movie. Of course, I said yes. I am the A.D. (Assist Director) #2. “Scuba” Steve is the first A.D. he’s a great guy, FYI. I also am a grip, and help to edit the movie. God has blessed me greatly, and I am sooooo happy that I have been given an amazing chance to do something great for His glory. I love the Lord so much, and believe that through this movie He will do great things.
God has a plan for you too!!!
Thanks for reading. God bless.
(Thanks, David, Emily, Randy, Sheila, Scuba, Mom and Dad for being there for me!)
Scuba Steve here! ^_^
Hello, and welcome to our brand new site for the full length feature film Buddy Guard! Well, after shooting for 2 weeks in Missouri and being back for 2 weeks here in the Quad City Area in Moline, Illinois, we are excited! We have done so much in preperation for continuing shooting including (but not limited too) making lists, schedules, new business contacts, editing, and blogging!
