12-08-2014: More BRUTAL Auditions

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh buddy! Tonight may have been the best auditions yet. I had a young man named Billy come over to read for the parts of Dave, Jeff, Steve, Chuck and a couple of the assailants. He was accompanied by a young lady named Rachel who read FABULOUSLY for the parts of Janet, Allison, Lucy and even Steve’ landlord Archer…who is a male in the script, but I converted to female for the sake of giving her more to read.

However, the REAL fun of the evening was in the fight scenes Billy and I came up with. Here they are, with me employing some of my good old wing chun skills. Keep in mind they are just rough demos.


About Steve Grogan

I am 40 years old, divorced, and a father of four kids. I am a practitioner of a self-defense system called wing chun kung fu. My other hobbies include writing, playing guitar, reading, watching movies, and listening to music. Recently I have gotten back into fitness, and this time I am DETERMINED to get the washboard abs...whether my metabolism will cooperate with me or not! The purpose of this blog is to write not only about my hobbies, but also about whatever crosses my mind, whether it is something I don't understand or something that aggravates me. So join me as I indulge my tendency to think too much about topics that don't usually cross anyone else's mind!

    Good stuff. I can see that you’re holding back a little (it makes sense not to risk busting up your actors at this early stage) but even so, your hand speed is very solid, especially in Demo #2. I hope you’ll really let it go when the actual filming starts and show us your top speed. One more thing: remember all those Jackie Chan outtakes, with guys going home in ambulances? Best of luck to you and your villains!

      Thanks, although I will say one thing: when filming fight scenes, you actually have to SLOW DOWN the techniques. Otherwise all you see is a blur and people falling. You can always speed the footage up in post-production. Anyway, I am glad people are engaged in the updates about this!

    Hey, Steve! I have been following your movie making saga! All looks great! Keep up the good work!!

      Thanks! Also, FYI, a friend of mine recently moved back to New York who wants to take the local music scene by storm. He wants to play out acoustic, as a full band, and do some recordings. Even if you can’t be in something on a regular basis, it’d be cool to have you on board to participate in the recording process!
