Thanks for supporting this project! I also wanted to write a brief bit about rehearsals. Rehearsals are fun! As the actors rehearse a scene, they get deeper into their characters, and clever new ideas always arise. We’ll be rehearsing prior to the shoot, of course, and then there are always more rehearsals on the set. And then we shoot! Because of our backers, we’ll have more rehearsal time for this next shoot than we had for the previous one. This spring we’ll be rehearsing, prepping for the production, unpacking the camera and making it happen — all thanks to you!

Photo: (L-R) Morgan Simpson, Co-Producer Paul Nicknig, Dana Brooke, and Jim Meyers rehearse scene 55, about an hour before shooting it. This gives the director of photography, the sound guys, and the rest of the crew a preview of the “blocking” of the scene (where the actors will start the scene, when they’ll move, where they’ll end up, etc.). Scene 55 is the middle scene shown in our Kickstarter video. (photo: Charr Crail)
