Day 3 Principal Photography
Overheard on set: “Wow. That was deep. I’ve never seen a body wrapped like that before.”
Today, one of the scenes we shot involved the preparation of a dead body for a Janaazah, a Muslim Funeral. It was a very spiritual experience. One cast member who wrapped the [very much alive] actual body said, “It made me very sad, and aware of my own mortality.” One of the producers was seen welling up with tears.
On a lighter note, my actors had a fun time playing with guns today. In fact, too much fun. My DP/Stunt Coordinator, Antar Hanif had to scold them, “I can’t leave you guys alone for a second! Stop playing with the guns.”
The cast and crew did an amazing job today. 🙂
