It started with a phone call from Norris Morris Harris (yes that’s his real name) who is the unofficial tourism ambassador for our sister island Barbuda. We plan to shoot some scenes there for THE SKIN and Norris called and offered us his beach bar and villa located on the world famous pink sand beach. His place is called Nomos and it’s very new. It’s ideal! Now we just have to decide, will it take one day or two to complete the shoot?
Sara has bought the belly cast that she needs. She still has to buy blood and the wig. Her bag of special effects makeup goodies also includes slime and “the skin”.
Blue Waters Hotel will provide accommodations for Carl Bradshaw and Carlisle Bay will play host to Jeff Stewart. We have lots of options for the crew but still haven’t decided. I’m trying to balance keeping them central and getting them a room with a view…near the beach.
Set for this week are site visits and rehearsals. I finally confirmed a production assistant for continuity. Also set for this week is a follow up meeting with the Minister of Tourism.
