As part of the application process to be allowed to shoot in the cave, I was told I needed to submit a specific schedule for the amount of time we would be shooting in the cave and the date of the shoot for consideration. I spent some time this afternoon working out the shot list and looking practically about what could and could not be accomplished in an eight hour time frame. I considered the realities of needing to schedule a bathroom break in the middle of the shoot. I think I produced a reasonable plan, though the shooting time frame is tight at various localities, I believe it can be done as I have planned. We will not have an opportunity to make the trip to Echo River via the Snowball Dinning Room. There simply isn’t enough time, and I am not sure it would be worth it given the costs involved to try a second shooting day. We will see about that. I have forwarded the shot listing/schedule to my Director of Photography Phoebe Frear and am awaiting her input, before sending it on the Mammoth Cave.
