Before you watch this, here is what you need to know:
We were in downtown Riverside and needed a rugged place to shoot our sequence. We were kicked out of a parking garage but then we found this cool alley area. Now it was somewhat open to the public and we were a little nervous about pulling a gun out with so many cars passing. Nobody wants to get arrested by the police… So Sam put it in his coat as we were finally ready to shoot.
Now the gag was for him to shoot the lid of a large dumpster and the lid would close shut. Simple enough right? We lifted the lid up and while waiting to shoot the scene some wind came and knocked it down:
SPOILER :::: BE SURE TO WATCH VIDEO FIRST!
Perhaps you had to be there to appreciate how funny this is. What is more hilarious is that everyone was startled by the sound but only Sam’s face is on camera being spooked! Obviously this is the take I used because there was so much excitement going through his veins.
We filmed with a JVC HD-200 with one of those fancy DOF converter and a 50mm lens.
