A wee bit of info about the Screen Test

I thought I'd give you all a bit more information about the screen test...

We had five potential actors there (potential meaning that I love their portrayals, they want to do it, and we're just waiting for Regina's "okay") including Bear, Blanche, Rose, Fish and Rob. We read through six scenes and filmed single takes of five of them. This was really a chance for me to see how they all worked together, and if I liked how they chose to portray the character, and to give Regina the chance to see that as well.

The scenes we did were as follows:

Bear asking Blanche to the Prom

Rose meeting Fish in the park

Rob telling Rose about Fr. Raymond's murder

Fish and Bear arguing in the penthouse after prom

Bear and Blanche's discussion after he chases Rob away.

I'm not going to say much more, except that after the final one, I was very nearly crying over how beautiful it was.
