On Location with "Death Sentence"


Today I had the rare opportunity with some co-workers to walk out of my government building in Columbia, SC, to the familiar street next door and view the prep and shooting of a scene from Death Sentence, a Kevin Bacon movie coming out in 2007. IMDB's plot statement says of the movie "After his family members suffer at the hands of gang members, a father sets on a mission to kill each thug involved with the crime." Normally, it's not the kind of movie I'd be interested in but I've always had the film bug myself. From early on, my inner Spielberg would be release by using Super 8 films to have a plane battle with model fighters on fish string. And throughout the years, I've enjoyed putting together this or that special video/slide show. So any opportunity to be behind the scenes of a movie and maybe glimpse an actor or two is alright by me. So here's what we saw...

Crossing the street we watched as "muscle cars" were prepped for the scene.








Second Unit Director Joel Kramer's chair













Kevin Bacon's arrives and preps for scene


















The "Bad Guys" are here































The scene is shot with Kevin sitting in a gold car across the street from a courthouse watching with riveted eyes on the gang members who celebrate their court "victory". Bacon's stunt double preps to sit in the car and drive after the gang members who jump in their cars and speed away.

















Director James Wan (in the baseball cap and not even 30 years old!!) is even here to make sure everything is as he wants










Checking the scene, looks good, roll it!

























They'll be for a few weeks...maybe there's a chance for some more sneak peeks.
