"BORDERTOWN" ("BORDERCROSS")

Postby RLC-GTT on Thu Apr 02, 2015 4:17 am

We have a movie for Alamo Village. Director Chuck Walker did his final scout on March 20, and they will film for four or five days at the village during the
week of April 12. Walker Cable Productions will be doing it. Producer Sam Cable and writer-director Chuck Walker have done the last four movies at Alamo
Village: Cartel 1882 (2004), Blue Eyes (2005), Mexican Gold (2006) and The Man Who Came Back (2007), the last of which was a co-production with Eric
Braeden. Here is an article from the Brackett Herald last week that pretty much says it all.

Will they be sprucing the place up a little? Are they going to shoot anything at the Alamo? Maybe the Pink Hump could be re-located to Tunisia.

There will be no sprucing up. They are using the set as -- imaginatively -- as "an abandoned western movie set." :roll: They are not shooting anything in the Alamo. It is seen in the distance and referred to in the script as "the fort." Thus Tunisia will have to wait for its new attraction -- and Davy Webb will still have the honor of striking the first blow. ;)

Here is the IMDb page for Bordertown. Click on "see full cast and crew" for more cast information (and no crew information. LOL). We had the tech scout this afternoon, they shoot tomorrow in town and then out at the village Monday through Thursday. This is the first feature film we've had since The Man Who Came Back in 2007 -- the first since we have been closed. It is nice that we can now offer them a "closed set." Dealing with crowd control -- even small crowd control -- was always the hardest part. Hope the rain holds off for the week.

P.S. -- I will be virtually missing from the forum for the next week. Have fun.

It's going! He's working 14+ hour days that start and end at odd hours, so he doesn't have much time to be online. They
should be through with the Alamo Village part of the filming soon. They are also shooting at locations in Brackettville.

Thanks, Kristi. The full cache of 48 photos (out of nearly 400) with my commentary will follow shortly (probably not tonight). I'd love it if there is some way you could get that video to work. I forgot that I couldn't just post it like a photo so I took it out of my presentation.

Looks like it was a muddy mess. At least the skies cleared wonderfully after the rain. Did they shoot in the rain?

Thanks for sharing, Rich and Kristi.

Yikes! It's on YouTube! It was just a little squib I shot with my iPhone for fun. It is terribly shot, and not done as I would do a professional video, but the moment was very special. They were between scenes and just chilling for a moment while the crew was resetting equipment. Corbin Timbrook is the featured nut. LOL. He is the second unit director of the movie and a terrific dude -- from my era of music. He has been here at least two other times.

Every production starts with a "tech scout." The main team (director, director of photography, production manager, etc.) comes out to make last minutes decisions regarding camera angles and order of shooting. It was the same for Walker Cable Productions. The tech scout was Friday, April 10. Here, writer-director Chuck Walker (light shirt) and second unit director Corbin Timbrook (light blue cap) discuss action and camera coverage with director of photography DJ McConduit (blue jacket with back to camera). Corby is the one who was waxing nostalgic in the video to Neil Young's "Old Man."

Most of the weekend and Monday were spent filming scenes in an abandoned motel about three miles west of Brackettville. All they did on the ranch was one scene at our entrance gate booth late in the day for about two hours. When they finished, the property master Shawn Gourley announced that it was Lauren Varner's birthday. She was the key set production assistant, and is getting her birthday hug from second unit director Corbin Timbrook. Shaun came to me privately and said that they were having a surprise birthday party for Lauren back at Fort Clark and weren't ready yet. He asked if I'd help them stall. We told Lauren that, for a quick gift, we would take her down to the Alamo to watch the sunset. Since they were filming at the gate, none of the company had yet been down at the village or Alamo.

Needless to say, the Waynamo and the West Texas sunset performed their magic on this young Austinite and gave her a great birthday treat. I can still hear her voice echoing through the compound, "Awesome!" Lauren really enjoyed her Alamoment. So did Shawn.

But tomorrow would be a busy shoot with call time set at 7:45 A.M. We needed to have the gate open and me at the village by 7:30 for the first full day of filming. Thus, we will start tomorrow.... tomorrow.

I can hardly believe you survived that. Looking forward to tomorrow!

I wonder what role the AV front gate plays in the movie...
