Can we expect any more movie clips or film stills to last us until the film is released? It's a long wait till June 2011. ;)
– There will certainly be more trailers and film stills coming!
2) Could you re-tell any funny bloopers or a comical circumstances involving any of the main characters?
– Other than what I've already posted on the blog? No, but I can tell you that the blooper reel will be included on the DVD and you all are in for a real treat!
3) What was the most awful thing that happened on set, but at the end of the day Our Lady came though and everything turned out perfectly?
– Probably the day we got kicked off the St. Catherine location.
4) Can we expect another trailer with more footage? Don't take this the wrong way; the other ones did their job. They made me want to see more! lol!
– Yes. There will be more trailers coming.
5) Honestly, in your own opinion, how much alike to book is this movie?
– I think it is very like the book. There are certain location things I would have liked to do differently if I had a bigger budget, but overall I am quite happy with the script – and particularly the actors!
6) What is one thing that you wish you could've done during production, but weren't able to do?
– There are some shots I wish we could have gotten but we simply ran out of time.
7) What was your favorite scene to film?
– Anything that had Anthony and Jed acting together. Their brother chemistry was brilliant! Oh and the stuff in Freet's Basement was awesome as well.
8) What was the most surprisingly excellent scene that you filmed which made you fill with pride and joy? Or if there are more than one, what were the others?
-The last scene. It almost made me cry. Also, the scene with Rose and Rob in Rob's basement.
9) Which character BEST fit their part?
-It's all a matter of individual taste. I think all four of our main characters are astonishingly excellent and when they are acting it is difficult to believe that I'm not really in the room with Blanche, Rose, Bear and Fish!
10) What scene makes you laugh every time whenever you see it or think about it?
-Hmmm, that's a hard question. There are so many good parts! Hannah and Sharayah fakign Minnesota accents to memorize their lines... Jed making silly faces at the camera... they aren't scenes, but they are parts of the process which I'll never forget.
11) What was the most romantic scene you filmed?
-Oh there are so many beautiful Blanche and Bear parts! The park scene, the prom scene, the end scene... Jed and Hannah were always amazing.
12) If you were on a desert island with no food or water, who would you want with you: Jed, Hannah, Anthony, or Sharayah? Why?(If this is too prying, you don't have to answer. :)
-I can answer this one because Anthony and I actually had a long conversation about how we would survive on a deserted Island (We both love LOST). So Anthony. But I think Jed would be very helpful as well, and Sharayah would keep us all from dying of boredom, and Hannah would be a huge practiccal assister.
13) Did filming this movie change your view of the book? If it did, how did it change?
-Well writing a screenplay always makes you get rather tired of a story after awhile. That said, I think writing it did expand my understanding of the themes of the book.
14) What are you most proud of, looking back on this whole adventure?
- That we've made it this far, despite all of the hurdles we've had to leap!
15) Can we pretty please see pictures of the last scene with Bear and Blanche? As least one? ;D
- We've got two fundraisers going on for the film that I'm going to post about hopefully next week. When we've raised our first $100 dollars for that, I will post the Bear and Blanche photoes.
will the movie come out in theaters too?

Are there any major scenes that you had to leave out while filming?
If so, what are they?
- I believe I have posted pictures or mentioned all of the major scenes we've filmed. So basically, if you haven't heard about it yet, it didn't get filmed.

What park did you film the scene where Rose and Fish meet for the first time in? A friend had said it reminded her of the park across from the Minneapolis Institute of Art, but was unsure as to whether it was the park or just reminiscent of it (and I couldn't tell, either, but it piqued my interest). Thanks!
- We filmed at Loring Park, which is by the Walker Art Center and the old Guthrie location.

Are you going to maek the other two books into movies.
- Nope. No budget and I am hopefully never producing another film in my life.
2. And what about alex odonnel and the forty cyber theives
`- Again, no. Although I would love to direct a stage performance of “The Midnight Dancers.”

What was the biggest change you made from the book?
You'll have judge that for yourself. Hopefully none of them are very big – I think leaving out the Thrift Store Scene and the Fosters are the most drastic cuts we've had to make (which is pretty good, all things considered).
In a three or four words, what would you say are the character journeys of the four main characters--how are they different at the end of the story than at the beginning?
- If you've read the book then you should already know what they are. I wouldn't say that their arcs are any different in the film, though we may have made some of them a bit clearer.
1. Do Rose and Blanche both know how to play violin and piano?
- Nope! They are both beautiful singers and I believe Sharayah can play piano... but neither of them can play their characters instruments. My sister and I were the violin and piano hand doubles, respectively.
2. Where is this premiering?
Minnesota, in the western suburbs of the Twin Cities!
I have a question. What will you be doing for the soundtrack? Will it be original music or known songs (but it seems like it might be hard to get the rights for them)? I'm curious because music is always one thing I really notice when I watch movies!
- The music will all be original (or perhaps some canned bits if we get pressed for time). A long time friend of mine is going to be doing most of the composing, however he is getting married next June so it's possible we might need to bring on some other talent to get everything done.
What kind of screen are you going to be using for the movie premier? And how big will the screen be?
- Hopefully we will be able to rent a theatre for this.
Will all of the cast members be at the premier?
- That is the goal!
Will there be a time at the premier when we can get autographs from the cast/crew members? :)
Will Regina Doman be at the movie premier?
- Most likely!
Will the DVD include "Behind the Scenes" or interviews of the cast/crew?
- Possibly a few interviews. However making behind-the-scenes features is a LOT of extra editing that I know I won't have time for. Unless someone else appears on the scene, I think the most likely feature are some commentaries because they're the least amount of work.
Do you know approx. how long the movie will be?
- I don't, actually. The estimate has been 2 hours, but until I start editing, I have no idea how close that will be.
Will you ever release the "official script" as a book/booklet for purchase?
- No. Regina owns the script rights and since it may get sold again someday I'm quite certain we will not be publicly releasing it.
Will you be selling any props from the movie
- Just about everything used in the film was an item taken from our own homes - which means that we and our families regularly use them and really don't want to sell them. ;) The "Rose" dress (which can be seen in the September issue of I&F) will be up for auction during the Premiere next June.
