March 1st, brought along the second production day for Workaholics Anonymous, which took place at New Bedford's Chamber of Commerce. With a cast of ten and crew of twenty, the team was able to get nearly fifteen script pages in the can.
"It's been a long, tiring day," said a fatigued Producer Allison Freitas, "and everyone is going to get a great night's sleep. But we made it, and we're more than happy with what we've accomplished."
From slower dialogue-driven scenes to swooping crane shots of the busy office floor, the Rab crew worked relentlessly to make sure every single shot was captured by the end of the day. "We're really lucky to have Pertinent Pictures with us," said Director Robert Bartolome. "Todd Walker and his grip crew really brought the production to a whole new level. They've taken care of all the lighting setups, and we couldn't have gotten our incredible opening jib shot without them."
"Today's shoot took care of the majority of the film," said Freitas. "We have two or three minor scenes to take care of, but we're over the hump and onto the home stretch." With Saturday's 20-hour production day complete, the footage will be reviewed and prepared for post-production editing, where the film will be slowly pieced together.
