    I posted some of the early shots of this set last week. We finished the set and filmed the "die in a fire" scenes last night.

    This is for a documentary about the history of NC that I'm working on. The set is of a Spanish fort that was attacked and burned by the natives.

    Enjoy!

    The "moonlight". Every nighttime shot has to have moonlight.

    The first burn. The fire in the foreground is simply to add light and heat waves to the shot. They are not in the shot.

    Adding a bit of fog to make more smoke. Too much. We ditched it in later shots.
