Last week I shot another student film, "Lynx Jinxed" playing opposite a real lynx. Now lynxes apparently have never been to film school. The director asks them to move camera right, the lynx will go straight after the cameraman. Ask it to sit and look at the woodcutter (me) and it rolls over for a belly rub. After three days of shooting they called it a wrap and are just hoping there is enough film to tell the story. We'll see.
ps The cat was actually amazing.
