After a long week of filming, Miracle crew is finally getting on top of things. We’ve all been hard at work in the editing room, especially director Katie McGovern. Felicia has made wonderful edits to the script to add more humor to a few scenes, a rap part in particular. The scenes that we have edited so far are really coming together, and Mary and Bakale’s acting skills make the movie. When asked to improvise a cheer, Mary threw in a surprise song that we can’t get out of our heads. We’re all very excited to see this movie come together and we are planning to film as much as possible. Schedualling has been a bit complicated, but we manage to work it out. Filming with teachers does tend to change the schedual, as we need to plan around when they are free, but Mr. Bakale has been great. The best part about filming with him is definately when he improvises and changes lines. He adds a lot of humor the movie and we always have a hard time keeping ourselves from laughing during the shot. Ross has been working hard at character development and also adds humor to many scenes.
Another great aspect of our crew is the art directors. We’re so greatful for art direction, especially Emily Martin who let us borrow her horse for a scene; she certainly wins art director of the week. However, all of our art directors have been a great help. Nell works hard to find costumes for us to use, and many people have lent us certain costume pieces. Katie and Felicia work very hard on making costumes, and they’ve done a good job putting Martin’s bald cap/sideburn combination together. Felicia works very hard with making costumes, etc., and her work definately shows.
Overall, our movie is slowly but surely falling together and we have a lot of plans to film and edit over the upcoming weeks. We can’t wait for this movie to premiere, and although it’s a lot of work, we think that it will turn out great. Also, Max is okay I guess.
