Day 31 - August 17th 2010

Back into the middle of nowhere to get scenes involving our heroines, our bad girl, Mr. Freet, and a nun.

But first... two guys and a camera.
Mr. Freet and Nun discuss the meaning of art.
(Yes, I finally got a cameo.)
Hannah brought along knitting to keep herself occupied. Sensible girl!
Ooooh... scary Mr. Freet!
Mean girls.
Nice girls.
So. Story time. We could not get our Principal back. Hence the creation of a vice principal to administer detention. (again... CAMEO!)

You look great as a nun Elena... but I thought Sister Geraldine was the only one who still wore a habit, and weren't they Dominican nuns?

HAHAHAHAHAHA...that's fantastic. Sister Elizabeth the Vice Principal! I bet you didn't see that coming when you started SOTB.

Rose - Regina said to go with whatever order we could manage to get a habit for. We couldn't borrow anyone's habits (you have NO idea how hard it's been to get anything we need for this film) so we ended up having to just buy a costume online.

It's looking really good! Especailly for the budget you guys have. I'm really excited to see the final product.

World Traveler - Thank you! :)

Rose Marchen said...

Ah, okay. Yay, now I shall go and figure out what order you are in... =)

To bad Yavi isn't a Dominican yet, you could have borrowed hers! ;) Assuming of course, that she would have chosen Dominican...
