Jupiter Ascending by Michael Durr

It was a busy Saturday night in Chicago. Setup for this scene of Jupiter Ascending began around 7:30am and did not wrap until about 9:30pm. The scene shows a few cars and a garbage truck meeting in the middle of the Lake Street bridge. The pyro effects actually shot up through the L tracks above the street. From what we could see there were several cameras pointed at the scene as it unfolded, but it seemed that the main camera shot was from the blue lift on the barge in the middle of the river. We watched them rehearse the scene several times before the pyro was installed. Once the pyro was installed it was one and done. Rumor has it that Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum were on the barge, but we never saw them with our cameras. We're looking forward to trying to capture more behind the scenes photos and video. NOTE: This video was the product a few hours of anticipation. Hence the excitement!

Mars Theater by Michael Durr

My girlfriend’s uncles, Andrew (Drew) Souders & Mark Ridge, built an amazing theater in the attic of their home in Chicago, IL. After working for years in the movie business doing extras casting, Mark had always dreamed of having a theater in their house. So, Drew made it a reality. The theater is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. After climbing a very narrow staircase all of a sudden you are transported back in time. The theater has an amazing feel from the moment you enter the lobby. It is fully equipped with a popcorn machine, lounge, and snack bar. The detail and comfort of the theater itself is absolutely amazing. Drew did most of the work himself painstakingly measuring, cutting, sanding, painting every piece added to the theater after the general contractor had left. They also incorporated Mark’s many collectibles ranging from posters, memorabilia & figurines into the decor. For my first experience, we watched the remastered JAWS blu-ray and it was awesome! With amazing sound and a big screen you actually feel like you are sitting in a theater. Although, the fully reclining seats brings it up a notch from your standard old time theater. Next up, Ghostbusters or maybe Back To The Future! I took a few photos and honestly they do not do it justice, but you'll get the idea.
