The crew of the movie "Dust of War" are a young, enthusiastic bunch and during the shooting of a scene involving over 100 extras on Saturday, comments from bystanders were all positive. Observations about the professional attitude and work ethic were heard as the cameras rolled.
The transformation of a Morris Construction gravel pit on the edge of Pierre into a post-apocalyptic survivor encampment was an impressive task for the scenery and art departments. It didn't help that just as the shooting was about to begin a windy thunderstorm whipped through, knocking down set pieces and creating mud holes. The crew made the most of it and completed shooting the day's scenes.
