authenticity for the exterior, as well as dressing the interior of the convenience store from scratch, including having the multiple sets of products required for multiple takes during a large fight sequence. An unforeseen challenge was faced while shooting Bright on the gas station set. Due to a family emergency with one of the main actors, there was a last- minute schedule change prior to the shoot at this location. This caused a ripple effect through the entire shoot schedule and forced the first and second unit crews to alternate days at the gas station with barely any changeover time. Assistant Art Director Matthew Horan and the on-set dressing crew smoothly helped the back-and-forth between all departments, avoiding what could have been a continuity nightmare, with each unit requiring the station to be in a drastically different state, including redressing a fully stocked convenience store. The end result was extremely satisfying. It was a privilege to be working on a full-length feature film shot in Los Angeles, to feel confident that when things change, you have a talented crew, reliable vendors, and the necessary tools at your disposal on a moment's notice.
