Deleted Scene: Tad’s Party Montage

With the DVD release (unofficially) only weeks away, I should be coming up with more deleted scenes to show here. To help move things along (and to get Emma back to her house a bit quicker), we recently revamped this sequence from Tad’s party midway through the movie. But even with the montage sequence in place of a few scenes, the party felt like it was running a bit too long, so we decided to cut this sequence out entirely. I think it was a good move, with the only downside that the song — “Mona Lee” by The Sweet Serenades — gets dropped entirely from the movie. However, the good news is I’m leaving it on the soundtrack since it’s so freaking awesome.

Random Scene: “Emma Leaves Home (Again)”

Here is a rough cut of the Big Emotional Climax from the movie. Luke (Ryan Stone) and Danielle (Tara Everhart) continue their argument about Emma (Vanessa Long), and Emma decides it’s not realistic to try and stick around any longer. The song is “Everybody Here is a Cloud” by Cloud Cult. We have a few edits to make (example: weird black flashes, huh?) but it’s mostly finished.

Enjoy!

Random Scene: “Emma Cleans House”

Here’s a scene from about the halfway point in the movie, when Emma (Vanessa Long) finally gets to be alone in the house she grew up in, after being away for the prior 10 years. I really like the tone of the scene, and it’s a nice quiet moment before we get into the Poker Party scene. We shot most of the scene during the last day of the non-stop 6 days of principle photography, after most of the other actors had headed back to LA. The song used in the clip was “Bones for Dr. Swah” by the band Wooden Wand, but we couldn’t get permission, so I asked Nate Ballard (who plays Emma’s sort-of love interest Tad) to let me use one of his songs. When I can, I’ll upload the final version of the scene.

Opening Title Sequence (Rough Cut)

Here’s the rough cut of the opening title sequence for I’m On Fire. The song playing is Chad Vangaalen’s “Rabid Bits of Time”. Unfortunately, we were able to get permission to use it for the final version. Fortunately, we were able to get “The Rain Pauly” by Boat Beam to replace it. Both are amazing songs, and I love how they immediately set the tone for the movie. I’ll post the final opening title sequence sometime in the future. Enjoy!
