THIS WEEKEND: Lions Den & Peter/Callas
Steven Berkoff as 'Lawrence Masters'
Meredith Ostrom as 'Callas' and Nick Townsend as 'Peter Denby'
This weekend was spent putting the sound back on a pair of characters who were completely recast and reshot in 2006/7 from their 2005 versions. ( a longer post on the actors they replaced and why is forthcoming).
Both Steven Berkoff and Merdith Ostrom were joys to work with, and brought incredible energy to the project. Both characters are pivotal to the story, with 'Lawrence Masters' being the decadent mentor who in a brilliant and devastating cameo spurs the run in the first place , and 'Callas' the sexy, violent killer who pursues Steve Lynch through the film.
Berkoff managed 17 pages of dialogue in his day on set which is certainly a record on this film, and possibly many others. We also ran 4 cameras on that day, so sound sync took most of the weekend.
Some of you may recognise the lower set as being The Loft, the office and studio we were based at for most of 2006/7.
