Day 15: Who knew scorpions could be stubborn little critters? Not me and not the other hundred crew members who stood patiently holding our breaths as, take after take, our little scorpion actor refused to go in the right direction.

Eager to get the shot, crew were called in to change the sand contours to manipulate the scorpions’ path.

Our director also suggested we put “no scorpions” signs up along the route. Just in case.

FYI: No scorpions were harmed in the making. We can’t say the same for our cast...
