Rose and Blanche's Last Day

We hit the second to last day of production today, and said goodbye to Sharayah and Hannah who have been our faithful, patient heroines. Both of them finished scenes in their prom dresses, with Hannah's last shot taking place in the penthouse, and Sharayah's... well she wasn't terribly happy that her last shot was in Rob's bathroom setting up a distraction by... yeah, flushing the toilet. It was pretty funny.

Anyhow, it was a crazy day, with four separate locations and lots of driving and backtracking to collect missing costumes and props because this director's mind is just about worn out from this project.

More pictures should be up by Thursday, and the September Issue of I&F will feature an exclusive interview with some cast and crew!

That is so awesome that your last scene was like, action-y! I love that part of the book!

Poor Sharayah...I would be mad if that was my last scene too. :)
