Knocked out a couple of quick scenes today with Jason Yonkers and Tony Arsulowicz Sr.!!! They did a hell of a job!!! Making it look easy!!!!! First of all we created a new scene for Joseph White, to expand on his character a little bit. We wrote and shot the scene that day!! Very impressive (Because it turned out fucking awesome!) We shot the scene on the roof top of a parking garage in downtown Grand Rapids, after our last shot it started to downpour!!!! We got luck!!! Right after the roof top scene we headed down to the Senator's house and beat the shit out of two scene's with the Senator (Tony Sr.) himself!!!
