DIGITAL LIGHT TEST FOR 'THE DEATH OF ABIMELEK'
FROM 'IN THE TIME OF THE JUDGES'
We had just finished shooting the death scene, but Devan looked so fantastic, I had to take another shot.
In the story, after his murderous rampage, Abimelek approached the Tower of Thebz where every man, woman and child had retreated, and intended to burn it to the ground as he did in Shecham. A woman dropped a millstone on his head.
He ordered his armor bearer to kill him so that he wouldn't have been killed by a woman. And he did.
I will process the film this week and I continue to shoot through the entire book into summer. The actual oilgraph works will be made as time allows. It may take me to the end of the year.
But Saturday was a good shoot.
Next week I return to the story of Ehud and Saturday I shoot the Birth of Abimelek, which will be a birth as violent as his life.
The work continues....
