It’s time for another trip to the studio and a look behind the scenes in our series On Set with Alan Greenstein.  Alan is a longtime friend  and supporter of The Reel Network and we are pleased to announce that he’s making time in his busy schedule to join our writing team as a contributor.

Support Our #creatives is Alan’s passion “brand”, under which he offers services in various aspects of production, including funding/investing, IMDb page management, social media management, pre-production work, and on-set work. The blog of the same name documents his experiences and those of his colleagues in the entertainment industry; provides information on various aspects of film, TV, and new media production; and he conducts interviews with creatives.

Alan is involved with various aspects of Hollywood film making including proofing scripts, editing, funding and providing artistic input.

Alan is taking us back to the set of his latest film “The Laser Effect” directed and written by Tashaun Stanfill-Perry of Sir Brael Entertainment and starring Honour Drew, Alyse Hamilton and Stanfill-Perry.

In his blog Support Our #Creatives,  Alan walks us through a typical day as an associate producer on a film.

Today, Alan takes us on-set for the film “Camp Wilson”.


I was on-set today at the film “Camp Wilson”, written and directed by Barry Battle. I am an associate producer. This was the last day of principal photography.

“That’s a wrap” for Principal Photography

Principal photography is the phase of film production in which the project is filmed, with actors on set and cameras rolling, as distinct from pre-production and post-production.

The term “wrap” originated in the early days of the film industry, to signify the end of filming. It is sometimes said to be an acronym for “Wind, Reel and Print”. In my experience on-set, I have also heard “wrap” being used when filming is done at a location or filming is done for the day.

Today was the wrap of principal photography of “Camp Wilson”. I even took a 3-second video of Barry saying “That’s a wrap!”


The “Sugar Plate”

A prop (short for “theatrical property”) is an object used on stage or on screen by actors during a performance that is movable or portable on a stage or a set.

One of the props used today was supposed to be a glass plate with some vegetables on it. But the prop was made of sugar! This plate was to be thrown and break into pieces. Being made of sugar, it would not really hurt anyone and would easily break apart. Many props that are meant to hurt a character are made of special material to avoid real injury. Other examples are hammers, knives, and bottles.

Conclusion

It is always a special experience for me to be on-set. It is extra special when a major milestone is reached, such as the start and end of principal photography.

By the way, cast and crew are being filmed in a “The Making of …” short. I described how I came to work on the film as an extra and later became one of the associate producers.

I will continue to document the “Camp Wilson” experience.

Please provide your thoughts and questions in the comments. I would really enjoy hearing from you. If you have a topic in mind you would like me to cover, please let me know.

    Donald Trump and CBS CEO Les Moonves are currently being accused of sexual assault. Both of these men are white and super rich. Mainstream media will not broadcast the identities of the women accusing these rich, powerful white men of sexual assault.
    When boule Bill was accused of sexual assault and rape, all of the tv networks gave those old white bitches hours and hours of tv time so they can tell their stories of how boule Bill allegedly rape them. To put it in layman terms, Trump and Les Moonves are being protected by the white owned media. Boule Bill’s career and legacy has been tarnished and destroyed by the same mainstream media. Boule Bill was found guilty before he went to trial. In conclusion, white privilege and racism is real and it’s happening as we speak.

    PS: Does anybody know the name of the women accusing Trump and Moonves of sexual assault?
