Principal photography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Principal photography is the phase of film production in which the bulk of the movie is filmed, with actors on set and cameras rolling, as distinct from pre-production and post-production.[1][2] Principal photography is typically the most expensive phase of film production, due to actor, director, and set crew salaries, as well as the costs of certain shots, props, and on set special effects.

Its start generally marks a point of no return for the financiers, because until it is complete, there is unlikely to be enough material filmed to release a final product needed to recoup costs.[3]

While it is common for a film to lose its greenlight status during pre production – for example, when an essential cast member drops out or unexpectedly dies, or some scandal engulfs the studio or an actor – it is rare for the film to lose financing once principal photography has begun.[citation needed]

Feature films usually have insurance in place by the time principal photography begins. The death of a bankable star before completing all planned takes or the loss of sets or footage can render a film impossible to complete as planned. Furthermore, professional quality movie cameras are usually rented as needed, and most camera houses do not allow rentals of their equipment without proof of insurance.[4]

Once a film concludes principal photography, it is said to have wrapped, and a wrap party may be organized to celebrate. During post-production, it may become apparent that some shots or sequences are missing or incomplete and are required to complete the film, or that a particular scene is not playing as expected, or that a performer needs to be replaced entirely. In these circumstances, additional material may have to be shot.

If the material has already been shot once or is substantial, this process is referred to as a re-shoot. However, if the material is new and relatively minor, it is often referred to as a pick-up.

You may have seen that Star Wars released the first official cast picture of the Han Solo film along with some additional announcements on the cast and crew now that principal photography on the Han Solo Star Wars Story has officially begun. So now seems like a good time to talk about what we know so far! Present in the picture are directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord. We’ve got Alden Ehrenreich as Han Solo, who I have to admit is looking the part, Donald glover as Lando Calrissian, Joonas Suotamo reprising his role as Chewbacca from The Force Awakens, and Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge who are all playing characters that have yet to be revealed. Not in the picture is Thandie Newton, who was rumored to be joining the cast, but we can now confirm those rumors thanks to the official release by Star Wars dot com. When this film was first announced, I was hesitant to be excited. In my opinion I’d rather see stories like Rogue One, featuring specific events rather than focusing on characters. I don’t necessarily want to see a trend of a Han Solo movie and then a Boba Fett movie and a Yoda movie, and on and on. However, the more we learn about this project, the more excited I’m getting. I am a fan of most of the cast, and I’m especially excited to see what Donald Glover will do as Lando. I’m not very familiar with Alden, although I liked him a lot in Hail Casear, and I don’t know Phoebe Waller-Bridge who is currently rumored to be playing a droid. Everyone else, though, I’m sold. Harrelson is said to be playing a mentor of sorts to Han, and many fans have speculated he will be Garris Shrike from Star Wars Legends, thanks to the fact that Woody said he was, but I’m still skeptical. The story is written by Lawrence Kasdan and his son Jon, which is another big reason to be excited. He’s written some of the best movies of all time including The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark. I truly believe they will write a story that is not only exciting, but true to the character we all hold dear. But the real reason I have faith in this film is Lord and Miller. I love their movies, and what’s more they have a proven track record of taking concepts that absolutely should not be good and making amazing films out of them. Who thought 21 Jump Street was a good idea for a movie, let alone a sequel? And yet both are absolutely hilarious. The Lego Movie sounded like the dumbest idea for a movie to me, but it wound up being incredible. Because Lord and Miller above and beyond expectations. They didn’t make a movie about Lego, they made a movie about what it’s like to be a kid playing with Lego. I’m rambling, but if anyone can take a Star Wars movie that at first glance sounds unnecessary and make something great out of it, it’s Lord and Miller. Even their working title for the movie, Red Cup, is fun and creative and goofy. Joining them behind the cameras is a production team I’m mostly unfamiliar with, but Bradford Young will be the director of photography, who just earned an Academy Award nomination for his work on Arrival, which was a great movie. Neal Scanlan is returning as Creature and Droid FX Creative Supervisor, and you can’t deny his fantastic work on The Force Awakens or Rogue One. I have to imagine the remaining crew are just as talented. Also worth noting is that the release date for the film is still scheduled for May 25, 2018. If I were a betting man, I would guess that Disney will push the release back to December 2018 after having two major December releases in 2015 and 2016, and I can only assume The Last Jedi will perform just as well. Although I would be perfectly happy to only have to wait six months between my Star Wars fix, I’m just trying not to get my hopes up. What are you guys thinking about the Han Solo movie? Are you excited, or still cautious, or downright against it? Let me know in the comments!
