How to make a Movie in 5 Days: Put a Ring on It-Day 3

It’s a day that will live in infamy. Our biggest day. We successfully shot 25 pages of material in one 12 hr span. There were no major hiccups. We started and stopped on time. It was overall the most successful day of shooting I’ve ever had.

Alonzo Jones stepped in last minute as BJ. The other actor had to drop out last minute.
