It takes a lot of gear to make movies. It takes a lot of planning and 'getting ready' too. They actually had the whole video story boarded and on paper when they started the day. This ain't no Mickey Rooney spontaneous Thrown Together Play, kids.
Action! Chad rode in the back of the M filming the live remote action scene while Farmer Jon - The Best in the Midwest - drove to the fields to begin his work day.
There was a lot of 'director directions' coming here. I couldn't make it all out, but Jon was under pressure to perform. These guys only look relaxed. They were pretty intense all day long.
Off camera pro making the shots for the camera that The Best in the Midwest appeared to be throwing. Camera trickery!
Rehearsal. The director can be demanding. The action has to be 'just right.'
And just like magic, A'mealio appeared to size up the target - make a measuring practice swing or two before throwing, and then TOSS!
