Behind the Gun:
The Making of Evasive Maneuvers 48.56 MB

A second Gagne film was conceptualized in Fall of 2003, while in production of Dark Exposures. The screenplay was not finished until April of 2004, after the completion of Errand Boys.

Triné Alimena, Pat De Nicola, and Jake Nabel had to be shot for the last scene on December 20, and 23, 2003 because at the time it was thought that Dastoli Digital wouldn't be back in Stamford, Connecticut before the movie was completed. The scene was shot at the Glenbrook train station, which is the same train station that was used in Under the Gun.

On April 18, 2004, stand-ins were used to complete the last scene. This was shot on Parking Garage South on the University of Central Florida campus, as well as an area near the Print Shop.

Before leaving for Stamford again, the secretary scene was shot on April 20, 2004 at the UCF Teaching Academy building.

While back in Stamford on May 16, 2004, James Dastoli's angles of the last scene were re-shot at the train station.

On May 27, 2004, the exterior of buildings in downtown Stamford were used for the film's opening shot.

Upon returning to Orlando, the Remeaux scene was shot at the UCF Teaching Academy on June 19, 2004.

Inserts of the laptop were shot on June 20, 2004, and re-shot on June 23, 2004.

On June 27, 2004, the garage scenes were shot on the Parking Garage West at UCF. The car chase and the car exteriors for the helicopter scene were also shot on the UCF campus.

James Dastoli's angles of the last scene were re-shot again on June 30, 2004 along with the final dialogue scene. The same location near the Print Shop was used.

On July 5, 2004, the car interior scenes were shot using the same roads as the exeriors.

The first cut was completed in early August 2004. The final cut without music followed a few days later. Then, after a period of time waiting for an original score, Evasive Maneuvers was completed on September 27, 2004.
