Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles - Hi, I'm Jennifer Garner. - And I'm Edgar Ramirez. And this is everything we did In A Day on the set of Yes Day. [soft upbeat music] - Hi I played Allison Torres, and I am a mom of three. - I'm Carlos Torres. I'm married to Allison. I am the father of three. - For the car wash day, I got up probably four forty five or five. - I got up. [chuckles] I got up at 4:45 as well. - The days were short then, and then the sun was setting kind of early and so we needed every bit of daylight cause we had to shoot the whole scene in one day. So I know we started super early that day. - We needed to get it done before sunset and we're also working with kids, so the days were even shorter. - My alarm is just the alarm sound on my iPhone. - My alarm is, I mean feel free to cut it out if you need to, but Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing. [laughs] That is the song from my alarm. I just love like it's a very soothing song. - First thing I do is hit snooze. [laughing] And wait for my second alarm. - The first thing I do is I hit snooze. For another 15 minutes. And I have my clothes everything on a chair. So I get I mean it's like I prepare everything the night before so that I can be ready. - Like a little kid going to school, you have it all laid out on the chair? - Exactly! Exactly that! - Do you have your underwear on top because you put it on first? - It is exactly what I did. Exactly as I did when I was going to school as a kid. Back in Venezuela, normally when you go to school, you wear uniform. Right. And then I would leave my uniform on a chair, next to the bed so that I would jump in my clothes and then have more time to snooze. So that is exactly what I did during Yes Day. I had my uniform and you know that I have a uniform. I have three track suits that I used. Throughout the whole shoot. And that was my uniform for Yes Day. - That's right. You decided you said I need some cozy clothes to come to set. What should I do? And I think I sent you to Lululemon right? And you came you wear em like religiously, boom boom. So I probably quickly read through the news, took a shower, and I have a coffee maker that's an alarm. And it grinds the beans to the amount of water you have. And I could hear it going off. And that's what actually pulls me out of the bed and gets me in the shower. We would get there way before the kids. So I'm sure, - Yeah. Yeah. - By six? - Not later than six. We were never in the chair. The makeup chair before six right? Sorry after six. - Yeah and then we'd have like the eye things on to take away the puffiness and the circles. And we definitely had, we both love coffee a lot. So there was a serious flow of coffee coming into that hair and makeup trailer. Yes my love of course. - Coffee always. Espresso for Edgar. And that day we had waterproof makeup put on remember? It wasn't our typical makeup. They had they had bought waterproof makeup for that day. - Makeup for me is super, super quick. But that is the longest that I'd took. Cause I had like the blue, you know like mask on so. - That was more like an hour and a half to a two hour look. I've been working with the same hair and makeup people forever. And so they're really good at working together. But it's definitely the I have ponytails and they're curled. And then I had glitter and, this crazy makeup on my face. And it the fun thing is it's the same makeup artist who did 13 going on 30. And it feels just like when she was doing that makeup. For me it was a it's a solid couple of hours. I usually work. I make a lot of phone calls. At the time I think I was in the middle of a big push. And, for kids. And I was calling senators from the makeup chair. Edgar would close his eyes. I'm sure you had your eyes closed. - I sleep - You would sleep. - I sleep. I sleep. That's what I do. You know I said hi hi. Hi everybody. [snoring] And I just keeps sleeping. - We would go to set. We'd have everything set up. So by the time we had the youngest Everly, who played our youngest daughter. And by the time she was there, everything was really dialed in. So that we didn't waste any you know, kids have a lot to have shorter hours. So we didn't waste a minute. So we would go to set with her stand in. And you know check out what it was gonna be. And the first thing we did that day we're establishing shots in the car. Driving to into the carwash scene. That would probably take an hour to an hour and a half. - Yeah. - And we probably didn't even have Everly in the car. It was probably. - For sure. - A stand in. And maybe even a stand in for Julian as well. Probably by the time we finished the establishing shot, it was around 10. It was definitely mid morning. We had already gone through, you know we'd probably had an extra coffee run. We were all gearing up and excited for the car wash. And nervous. Cause it was cold. We were shooting this in La's winter. Which isn't obviously frigid. But it was cold. It was a cold day. Then we shot probably they attached cameras to the car. And they would attach em to, one side of the car. And they'd shoot over me to Edgar. And then they would move everything around. Attach the other side of the car, shoot over Edgar to me. And then before we went into the car washing, we all stopped and put on wetsuits. Because once we started going through the car wash, we were shooting it. So we needed to make sure, the kids are handing us snorkels, and goggles. And we needed to really make sure that we had that down pat. Because, a take, doing a second take meant, stopping, drying everything, drying our hair, redoing our makeup. And getting totally ready again. From scratch. - And it was very cold. And the water was cold. So you know it was fun. I mean we used it. But it was, but it was very chilly. - It was very cold. Edgar do you remember Everly got scared. - She got scared poor thing. I mean we got scared. I mean now let alone for Everly. She got scared of course it was. - Yes sweet Everly got scared. And we were all talking because we said, oh no she's only done one time through, we have one take of her. We're gonna need her again. And so she got back in the car for a second take. She said she wanted to do it. She got back in the car. And then right as we got to the water, she started crying. And she said no no no I don't want to. And so we stopped and we cut. - Yeah exactly. You know what's very scary? I think when you use goggles and water is coming at you for the first time. Like you put the goggles and then you have all the water coming and you don't see anything - But still, it was quite quite shocking. And the bubbles that are coming in. And you get soap in your mouth and. But if you're a grown up and you know that it's silly and you're just doing it a few times, it's hilarious. And even for the older kids it was hilarious. But for a little five year old, she was terrified. We did something that day called French hours. Where it's a 10 hour shooting day, and you take a break when you can. But you don't have a specific everybody at once lunch break. So then we all ate like in our, in our little hotel rooms. And I think Edgar we probably found each other after we ate and hung out a little bit. And then I think the kids had to fit school in. On either side of things as well. - Yeah. It's true. Yeah every day. Yeah they have school hours. - Cause Jenna put herself through school and graduated from high school while we were making the movie. - And so yeah we had our little party for her graduation. Not that day. No no no. Towards the end of the shoot. Yeah. - Okay that day after we got everything at the car wash, we just had, a different kind of establishing shot. And so we did like one final shot of the day. Where it was, Edgar me Jenna and a couple of stand in's behind us.
