Day 6 - May 12th 2009
Elizabeth: So...Elizabeth and Anthony here with the latest report from the SOTB film set.
Anthony: Good afternoon all you SOTB fans. I think you will be glad to hear that we filmed the scene...
Elizabeth:...of Fish and Rose in Freet's basement. It was a blast.
Anthony: It was indeed a blast. It was very fun.
Elizabeth: Starting with the makeup..
Anthony: This was like half of the fun, with the blood and bruises and cuts and of course tearing up the shirt...
Elizabeth: Blood! Guts! Gore!
Anthony: Yes indeed Elizabeth. Blood, guts and gore.
Elizabeth: I got to be principle make-up artist. That was awesome.
(Elizabeth's hand on the spray bottle! ;) )
Elizabeth: and THEN we got to tie Anthony up!
Anthony: I've never been tied up before. It was painful, but unbelievably fun.
Elizabeth: And then we made you escape...8 times? 10 times? What was it?
Anthony: Oh I don't even know...but it was a lot.
Elizabeth: And then I got to escape...
Elizabeth: I wasn't too bad. Was I? Oh yeah...you weren't there then...
Anthony: No I wasn't. I was rescuing a girl with a bag over her head.
Elizabeth: *SHHHH!* We haven't filmed that yet!!!
Elizabeth: Oh and that last picture was when Sharayah was trying to get coffee from me...
Anthony: Ah yes. My beautiful counterpart. You must admit that that puppy dog face is quite convincing. I don't know what the heck mine is.
Elizabeth: Terrifying. And I don't know about convincing. Sharayah never got that coffee. She didn't need it.
Elizabeth: So we filmed about half or a third or something of that scene, and tonight we're going to do the rest.
Anthony: I'm excited and terrified.
Elizabeth: MR. FREET! But remember, Mr. Freet is nothing compared to Wolverine.
Anthony: ??? Wolverine is a good guy!
Elizabeth: NO! HE BEAT UP GAMBIT!!!!
Anthony: *laughs* He needed it.
Elizabeth: Grrrr. Ahem...*to fans* After filming last night the guys and I went to see "Wolverine." Which was awesome. And because our cinematographer, Eric, works at the theatre, he took us upstairs and I got to press the "start" button for the movie. That was super cool.
Anthony: It was AWESOME! You guys should all go and get a tour the projector booth of a theatre.
Elizabeth: Not at all what you think it is. We thought it would be cool to film a movie up there...
Anthony: It was amazing up there. Spooky and mysterious and cinematic all at the same time.
Elizabeth: Yeah. You wouldn't think a movie theatre would be cinematic, would you?
