Later start today which is a welcome relief. We get to film the party scene in the boarding house which I’m really looking forward to. Looks like we’ll be working through to nearly midnight. But it never feels like work – more like play.
Both Lynda and Cerise, the wonderfully generous managers of the house we’re using, sat in on the rushes last night. This morning Lynda wrote: “Just a quick note to say how touched I was yesterday watching the film. You have captured the essence of these guys and I am proud to be a part of it.” To have their support means a huge amount – we want this film to be grounded in reality.
It’s been interesting to watch relationships growing between the crew and actors and those genuine residents who are still around. It’s a great atmosphere to be working in.
We’re getting great performances still from our actors – and they seem to be really enjoying themselves.
