We released "Freeman's Days. Day One" after four years of production, though planned to finish it in six months.
long period of filming explained, first of all, inaptitude to shoot
films. In process we began to understand for what are necessary such
trifles as thorough planning, storyboard, markers on rear screen and
etc. :))) Also ineradicable slovenliness is affected to all personnel of
the filming crew. On the other hand, we began to understand by learning
on the mistakes and finds, that we can reshoot of earlier scenes with
considerably best composition, picture, light, game of actors and etc.
As a result some scenes had to reshoot three or four times. And then,
that not to slip into the infinite improvements, it was necessary to
stop. Maybe we did it late. We think, that we did it early - 60% of the
existing material we would like to reshoot. But conscience doesn't allow
to pull further. But now we precisely know how to achieve a beautiful
picture and competently to build filming process. But we are very far
from real filming with their budget, equipment and experts.
shootings and production "FD. Day Two" will take less time, than it was
required on production of the first part. The second part will be. Also
in the project the prequel about Kramer's and Dragunov's past, in which
we want better to open these characters and tell their story.
