I moved the mud from my old mud pit into the 100 gallon tub so I could do this scene. I enlisted help, so I could be lowered into the mud. I was suspended by my ankles and my wrists were tightly bound. I’m pretty sure I could not have escaped, so I’m glad my helper was nice enough to winch me back out.
Of course, we shot video, and most of the video came out pretty well. There were a couple of shots that were out of focus, and they were shots I really wanted, but that’s the way these things go, sometimes. I’m pretty sure this will be a fun video, albeit a little short.
The brevity isn’t anyone’s fault. I can only do this for about 10 minutes because the mud is going up my nose and the blood is running to my head, etc. It is pretty stressful. That’s not to say I wouldn’t do it again tomorrow. 🙂
