walk n' talk / by Pete Circuitt

Walk test with Ryan Lampp for the robot in our film 21 Points. Sound is just a rough scratch layer, but I usually like to add a soundbed, even for tests. This test was executed while working with Ryan at the early stages of pre-production to see how a performance would work when working with an actor standing in for the robot just offscreen. Its a buddy movie so the connection between the robot and his human has got to be really solid. For example If we lose the sense that Ryan has actual eye contact with the robot when he is talking with him then this connection will be broken. We are working extremely hard to make this work in all shots, creating a set of rules for the shoot while still not letting these rules limit us creatively.
