Sister Geraldine's first day on set! Unfortunately the photography camera battery got left at home so we have no pictures, but the footage was good!
We drove across some beautiful Minnesota countryside to the little town of St. Bonefacius where our very awesome and dedicated fan Maria J. had secured our location which was to be Sister Geraldine's office. Then we filmed for four hours, getting down one of the longest exposition scenes in the script. We got some great stuff, and it was nice to have a small cast and crew as it meant we moved quickly. No crazy problems, and it was warm, but we did have air conditioning. The office was small, but we were able to get the shots we needed without much difficulty. I'm pretty pleased with it all! And I'm finding I like being the camera person...
