The first set of dock worker extras moved onto the set and rehearsed their scenes. At the same time we were told a scene inside one of historic brick building offices was being shot with Joaquin Phoenix. After a couple of short dock scenes were shot, a second set of extras moved into position to board the Potomac for what appeared to be a cocktail party. At about 10:30 “all quiet” was sounded and the scene rolled. Back-in-the-day music blared, the boat horn blew, trucks rolled by, the boat launched, the party rolled on and “cut”. There you have it.
After the scene shot we spotted Philip Seymour Hoffman walking from the set dressed in a dapper greenish colored suit towards catering to sit down for dinner with who else... Amy Adams. How cool. We never made it to “it’s a wrap” that night and I feel for the cast and crew who hit the pillow the next morning probably about the time we were making coffee.
Yesterday we were privy to seeing the "talent" in action at one of the historic mansions being used as a set. Since we were up close, we have some great tidbits, etc. about the acting from Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Pheonix, Amy Adams, David Warshofski and Laura Dern. Stay tuned for more tidbits from Stellar Spa & Dana and Patrick Vandeweg...
