Syyn Labs Die Hard Shoot in the Mojave Desert
Gradman, Sadowsky, Cousin Gilles (unslept), then Brent, Busby, Hector, Mat, Heather and others met out on a flat lake bed where 24 cars had been stacked in the layout of a piano: 24 b+w cars, one battery, tuned hors and synched headlights. Oh and Gary Numan to play the ‘Cargan’.
After a stressful build day everyone left and I camped out in the open desert with a tent I had in the back of my car. This action was much to the surprise of the entire crew who was pretty sure that as soon as darkness hits rattle snakes and scorpions were going to emerge from every rock and come straight for my tent. The fear that most people carry in this world would be truly comical if it wasn’t so depressing.
By the end of the following day Gary Numan would be flown in and we had to have it ready.
We did it, but not without significant challenge and lack of sleep!
