Welcome to "The Shadow of the Bear" movie blog!

We are an independant young adult-run production based in the U.S. Midwest. The film has been in pre-production since summer 2008, and wrapped up filming on August 26th, 2010.

We premiered the project on June 23rd, 2011 at the St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis, MN to a delighted audience of over 100 viewers.

Screenshot Tuesday

Today's screenshot is another look at the "Princesses in Disguise" scene. This scene was a rather difficult one to adapt, as the dialogue is important both to the plot and to the fans, but it doesn't translate well visually as it is basically people just sitting around and talking for ten minutes.

Regina suggested that I break the discussion into two bits -- therefore we do have Rose start the conversation earlier in the story, while she and Blanche are at school. It's a pretty neat intro and I think it'll work well.

The second half of the scene I enlivened visually by adding a chess game. The pieces on the chess board were great metaphors for the different kinds of fairytale characters the Briers and Bear are talking about. In addition, it's my own personal nod to "Black as Night" in which chess imagery figures prominently.
