During the filming of Knights of Badassdom on Summer 2010, director Joe Lynch posted on his blog photos taken on set.
The following photo of Summer holding a sword on set is well known but I'm not sure many of you have read Lynch's comment in his own inimitable style. Here it is:
KOB Shot of the Day #63: Midnight's Summer Dream
Started with the smallest moments tonight & ended with one of the biggest. Still odd to me that our midday is around midnight.
Between shots, I caught one of our Knights in a casual moment....a casual moment with a Sword that is. By now, Medieval weaponry, armor & entrails is just another day at the office to us, but still feels like a waking dream to be walking amongst it all in the midnight air.
Funny, this shot reminds me of something Argento-esque, a SUSPIRIA moment even, which let to me rambling on about Dario's filmography with Summer till "Picture's Up" was yelled. Could have been 10 minutes straight of Giallo gibber-jabber. Sorry, Summer!
I'm gonna go put on Goblin and pass out. Another Big battle on both sides of the camera, gotta keep fighting for some sleep.
