Finally all done on The Accountant. If you’ve been wondering what I’ve been up to…well I’ve been in Atlanta filming a Ben Affleck starrer but the list of amazing actors such as J.K. Simmons, John Lithgow, Anna Kendrick and Jon Bernthal accompany him in this tale of a man with Aspergers, surviving in a world that isn’t too friendly while navigating a dark past.
Well that synopsis sucks…totally my fault cause I just improvised it. It’s much better than that and more importantly it’s helmed by my good friend Gavin O’Connor. You may remember some of his past films, Miracle, Warrior and The Americans pilot (the last two I worked with him on). Anyway it was a blast. I got to reunite with past co-workers and meet a bunch of new and amazingly talented crew.
Let’s start with Seamus McGarvey and his camera team. These guys have done and been around all the top films. One day on set you can tell why. They make things look beautiful and they do it fast. It’s almost like the crew is in sync with Seamus who is a lighting-wizard. Remember his name, you will be or have seen a lot of his work.
Then there was the set. Keith Cunningham and his team killed it. From locations to construction to set-dec, everyday I’d walk into a place not expecting genius but there it was. They built us a replica house that was built on stage so we could blow it up! So much fun I can’t describe.
The AD team lead by Ivan Fonseca moved us along but kept the set fun, warm and communal. It was great to see everyone each and every day.
And of course my team, Reel Kick. My only regret is we couldn’t bring out Holland but I got him on the next one. OK dinner is calling and this is long-winded. Onto Captain…uh…nothing, I didn’t say anything
