"We shot that movie the same way we shot Tusk, in pieces. We shot Tusk for 15 or 17 days – 15 days in North Carolina, the majority of the movie, and then we spent, 3 months later, 2 days in Los Angeles shooting all the Guy Lapointe [Johnny Depp] stuff. So I had time to put the movie together, then kind of build the Guy Lapointe unit, then head back in and kind of shoot it like this weird little short film.
And so same thing on Yoga Hosers. We’ve shot three-quarters of the movie, and we’ve got a quarter of the movie left to shoot, and we finish right after Christmas, we start shooting. So we go right after Christmas, we break for New Year’s, and then we finish right after New Year’s. We’ve got, like, about six days of shooting, and it’s all the Parks’ stuff. So all the stuff with Johnny Depp, but all the Parks stuff..."
"...And also Michael Parks gave me the gift of Johnny Depp as well. You know what I’m saying? It was because he loved Parks that he was like, “Oh, let me jump in.” And so that, to me, is like no clearer sign than keep Parks involved in everything you do. I’m going to try to get him into Clerks 3 if I plucking can, believe me!"
"So that’s kind of what Yoga Hosers is. We take the two girl characters from the convenience store in Tusk and spin them off into their own feature, and Guy Lapointe, the character, comes back, played by Johnny Depp. I guess the best way, to use the old Hollywood parlance of “It’s ‘this’ meets ‘this’,” Yoga Hosers is Clueless meets Gremlins, or something like that. It’s a weird, trippy movie, but it’s adorable at the same time."
"So I shaved off my facial hair so I could put on the rubber appliances. And so we shot for a day of green screen – I think it was October 27th – and it was so much fun! It was a long process. It took like 2 or 3 hours to put it all on, but oh! It was such a blast! And I was able to kind of move through the work quickly, because I knew what we needed. We have one more day of green screen now at the end of this other unit that we’re shooting – all the Guy Lapointe stuff, so I have to shave my beard again, go back into the rubber."
All right, understood. Now you mentioned Yoga Hosers you’re just about done with that. Then you’re gonna do Clerks III.
Yeah, let me see what’s today, the 21st or 22nd?
The 22nd [of December, 2014].
We go back in and we shoot on the 28th, the 29th and the 30th. Then we wrap for the holiday a little bit for 31st and the 1st. Then we pick up again on January 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th. And then we have a greenscreen day a week later and then we’re done. So it’s been a really cool spread out schedule. We this we learned to work this way on Tusk, because we shot 15 days of the movie in North Carolina and then three four months later, we picked up the last two days which is all the Guy Lapointe stuff in California. Just kind of at the mercy of the schedule a little bit. So this time around, same thing. We were like “Look, we need to shoot a bunch of the movie, everything that doesn’t involve Guy Lapointe and then when Johnny [Depp]‘s free, we can jump back and shoot the rest.
So we got a call a couple weeks back right at the end of November about like “Hey, man, there’s a window in December.” And we were all thinking it was gonna be like February, March and stuff. But they were like “There’s a window in December, you wanna go?” And we were like “Oh Lord yes.” So we’ve been running and gunning pretty fast.
"That's a wrap on #YogaHosers! Eternal thanks to all my partners in this particular cinematic crime - especially the Colleens themselves: Harley & Lily. It was the best time I ever had making a movie!"
(Not sure if they didn't need the greenscreen, or if they've already done it, or if they don't count that as part of the actual filming schedule).
I can't think of a better introduction to filmmaking for Lily-Rose than to act with one of her best friends, with her dad in a small role, and with her friend's dad directing in a relatively low-profile film. Sounds like she had a blast and performed great too.
thanks for sharing the pic. Looks like a sweet moment
Also, to add something to Monet's comment...also with her mother. Because, it was more like a "rumor" months ago (well, not rumor. There was some picture from the set and Vanessa (along with some Lily's friends) were seemingly shooting cameo-roles in the movie) but now, it seems more like a "sure" thing, because It's on her "schedule"
