Day 33 - August 20th 2010

Day 33 had a rough start. Due to some miscommunication, the proper permission hadn't been secured to film at our location. That combined with the fact that it was freshmen move-in day at the college meant that we got kicked off.

Now I have to say, getting kicked off a location has only happened to me once before in filming. It is not at all a fun experience - I really don't recommend it. But God was gracious and after some frantic calling we managed to secure a second location just five minutes away from the first one. And despite all this, we still managed to finish filming ahead of schedule!

The new location! (and yes, that's Sister Geraldine!)
