It is always a bit scary when you work with young children. You never can tell what could happen. They could decide to throw a tantrum and not cooperate or they could be cooperative and a joy. I am excited to say that it was the latter. Mia Terrazzini and Alex Pagan did an amazing job. They followed direction extremely well and for not being experienced actors did a fantastic job. They were believable and acted exactly how we need them to act. I couldn't be more pleased.
Saturday we worked with a super talented group of actors; Victoria Baccini, Sarah DiPrimio, Ashley Major, David Melicharek, and Jeremy Rotolo. And once again the day went smoothly. My dad told me the last two days are not the norm in the world of independent film making and I know that but it's okay to dream. I know there are going to be days when nothing goes according to plan and we are going to have to roll with the punches. I have been on enough sets to see what is necessary to overcome unforeseen obstacles and even though we didn't run into any of those this past weekend I know when the do arise I will be more than able to adjust.
Here are some photos from this past weekends shoot. The mask on the killer isn't our final choice, it is just an early prototype.
