Congratulations to Anne Ferris for winning the “What’s Your Story” necklace!
Friday morning, I woke up far earlier than usual. I’m NOT a morning person. I do NOT function well until 3/4 way through my first cup of coffee. And, on Friday morning, I left the house with only 1/2 a cup.
I picked up some doughnuts (or donuts…which is correct???) and a mocha from Tim Horton’s (oh, Canada, thank you for sharing) and headed to the home of Andy and Anne Ferris. They have an older house that they opened up for us to use for filming.
My kids call it the “Raggedy House”. You know. Raggedy Anne and Andy…
Anyway. We got to the house. Ate donuts/doughnuts (seriously, my spell check is fine with both spellings). Drank coffee. Watched the film crew set up.
After figuring out where to place the lights,how to adjust the kitchen curtains, where to put the door, camera angles, and about a kazillion other details that I had NO IDEA were so important (big props to people who know how to do all this kind of work), we were ready for the camera to start filming.
The director (Jesse Low) actually hollered, “Quiet On The Set”.
Several takes later, the film crew moved next door to film in the basement of Andy and Anne’s neighbor. They used another neighbor’s porch. The park down the street. A street down town.
I know these guys worked hard and long on Friday to film for my book trailer.
It is work that requires patience. Knowledge. Equipment. Talent.
I’m so excited to view the trailer. But, really, I’m most excited to be able to share it with all of you.
So, today we’re celebrating with a give-away. Because it’s December and we can do that!
