The Shape Of Things...
Luke assesses the first shot of a very complicated two day shoot... a suspense/thriller sequence that pulls no punches.







Luke Goss
During the break neck 10 day shooting schedule, Luke Goss never ceased to amaze me. A true team player with a heart of gold... His performances were always "true"... and we always challenged each other to not fall into the trappings of formulaic storytelling. This photo was taken on our last day. A bitter sweet moment after a year long physical and emotional journey together.



Nov 12 2006
After a year of post, we begin the last stage of production. Picking up scenes that were left undone due to sever weather conditions. I have less than 4 days to travel across thousands of miles before production begins. Luke's schedule is tight so we opt to concentrate on Yuma Arizona. The diversity of Saguaro, sand dunes, Mts and most importantly nearby civilization make it a very fertile location for our production.

Skulls
Skulls play a major role in a key sequence of our picture. In our quest to find the most authentic available we searched in Los Angeles, London, Texas and in the 11th hour we discovered the finest replicas available were actually less than 30 miles from my home. Skulls unlimited were gracious enough to provide us with several replicas at an "Indie" rate. This company has been featured on The Discovery channel and were a true diamond in the rough.

The Crew
Though a smaller crew than the first run... the consensus is that this is a well oiled machine. Everyone does a great job of multi tasking. Which helps us get ahead of schedule... and stay on track. All involved were like family... and are dearly missed.



Day Off
After speaking to the medic and discovering that you can end up with an amputated arm... I opted to operate camera rather than body double.

Kevin Ellis - D.P.
I was very fortunate to re-team with my very good friend Kevin Ellis on the second phase of photography. Our ties go back to the genesis of this project 6 years prior. The two of us spent our vacation time in a hot desolate Texas location shooting our award winning short thriller "Dead End". It was this project that helped bring everyone on board and 6 years later we're still taking our vacation time off to complete another labor of love.



















Base Camp

Suffer for Art
Bone Dry has been an emotional and physical journey for all involved. Within the first week of scouting and production in Yuma, Alone, I managed to have 2 blow outs in the middle of nowhere, 1 high centered Tahoe on top of a peak, and a lap top accidentally banged up by crew members. Two years ago we went into the desert with dreams... I came out on foot w/o a car, and many other earthly possessions. But we have a very promising film with an incredible cast.

John Nolan
Single handedly made this production happen. It's incomprehensible to imagine us completing the breakneck pace of production w/o his steadfast producing skills. Together we managed to bring it all in on schedule and with half the prep time usually required.

Note from producer Greg Hughs
Brett, I wanted to touch base with you and let you know about some of the feedback I'm getting from distributors. Absolutely through the roof! Everyone I've spoken to has really enjoyed the rough cut and have praised your filmmaking skills. We are really generating some serious interest. I have been taking calls daily from distributors asking for DVD copies of the cut we posted on the web. Greg

Bone Dry Update
After months of editing... I finally finished the rough cut of Bone Dry. The project has exceeded my expectations. Close to 5 years have been spent bringing this vision to life. The cast, locations, performance and visuals are all top notch. Everyone gave their heart and soul for this project... creating something very special. I'm very proud of all those who have taken this journey with us... and the work we've created together.







































August 25 2005
We're finally able to post more images from the picture. The footage looks fantastic! Trained on the Avid, I'm having to learn Final Cut at home. An experimental rough cut of the trailer has received very enthusiastic responses. To finally be able to view the footage after four years of developing the project is a dream come true. The picture is earnest, passionate and has first rate performances that I always strove to capture. Our cast, crew, and partners have done a first rate job on Bone Dry. I can't thank them enough. I hope to be able to post the trailer within the next couple of weeks.

























































Production July-Aug 2005
Pictures are worth a 1,000 words... So attached below are images from the last 4 weeks of shooting. This production has been a testament to all those involved. Heat patterns have broken over 130 degrees on one day then flash floods the next. The performances from Luke, Lance, Dee Wallace, Tiny Lister and our newcomers Carl, Chad, and Richard have all been first rate. The crew have been given the title "The Iron Clad" by Lance, due to their unwavering commitment. We are very fortunate that all involved are excited by the script and the outstanding dailies... This feature is successfully capturing the spirit of those 70's pictures that inspired it... and we are all very proud of this rare opportunity to create something that will stand out and leave audiences with resonance.





LOCATION SCOUTING
Death Valley

Brett and I took a 6-hour detour that yielded The Racetrack, a place where rocks mysteriously move around a dry lake bed.

Okay, we're taking some crazy risks here, but they're worth it! My car's been put through the ringer, but we've found some amazing locations. Brett and I took a 6-hour detour that yielded The Racetrack, a place where rocks mysteriously move around a dry lake bed. Look at the tracks!

Then we got lost and took a road that I later found out was designated a Class III-to-Impassible road. But the good ol' BMW handled it fine.
