Filming a movie typically requires the cast and crew to work grueling 12-15 hour days. For Neal McDonough, this wasn’t an option when he was filming “BOON” alongside his co-stars, as he wanted to create an environment that was more conducive to family. Speaking exclusively with The List, McDonough explained, “Our days were 10-11 hour days, not 15-16 hour days. We try to make our days shorter, and everyone knew that on the first take, you better be prepared because we’re moving on fast.”

While the prospect of nailing your take on the first try seems daunting, the “Band of Brothers” star said, “Everyone was in it to win it.” They wanted to do well with the script that McDonough had co-written with Derek Presley, and they wanted to ensure that they weren’t preventing family time by taking longer than needed to complete a scene. McDonough credits the family environment on “BOON” with the successful achievement of this goal. He believes that because everyone knew each other so well, they were more committed to doing things right the first time around.

“Be ready on your first take, and let’s move on and let’s also go enjoy our lives after the day is done. That’s what we pride ourselves on,” he said.

“BOON” is now playing in select theaters and is available on demand and for digital rental or purchase.
