I'll try and answer some of these...
Anonymous - overkill? No, it's a foreshadowing for Waking Rose.
Titania - I am Elizabeth. ;)
Phoenix - Yes, we will have pictures of Mr. Freet up very soon. Just a matter of getting them from the photographers. How far are we? Um, I think we said something along 15 minutes or so? I won't know until we cut the footage together.
Rien Takid - Thank you! My brother and sister developed the blood, which is a mixture of corn syrup and food coloring. And my sister worked out some combination of regular make-up to create the bruises.
Angel Horses - What was I doing tied up. Um...Phil (our lighting director and other things) randomly tied me up and was like...*try and get out*...which I did pretty quickly because I love knots. It was just a random thing while we were waiting for Anthony to get back from doing something...can't remember what that was.
Vicki - we shot Rose and Fish's parts alone in the cellar on the first day, and the part where Mr. Freet arrives on the second day.
TooShea Films - I hope to. We'll see when we can edit next.
Anonymous - Well considering that the scene is already filmed, I don't know how we can make it dirtier. FYI the whole shoot came together incredibly fast and we had about a half an hour to distress the shirt while doing fifty bajillion other things. I think it wore down as we filmed though, so maybe you'll like the later pictures better.
To everyone else...I'm so glad you all are so pleased with this! Your enthusiasim is a huge encouragement to us all!
