Last night we did the first part of a two day shoot. Not going to lie, it was a little rough. Both Perry and I weren't feeling 100% so we're crossing out fingers. We also were shooting in my apartment, it was a bit cramped and so on. Enough with excuses, I think we did get some nice shots. I haven't seen too many yet, but there definitely something to work with there.
Yesterday we concentrated mainly on Peter and Wendy. Peter was played by the dreamy Reconstructing Grimm Alumni Chris MacGregor. He was lovely as ever. And put up with a great deal. When we planned the shoot the temperature was resting in the upper 40's low 50's. For Wisconsin that's pretty much a heat wave. Yesterday when the shoot actually happened the temperature topped out at a balmy 27 degrees. I had planned outdoor shots. I'm an idiot. We got as much as we could outside, but as I was barefoot, and Chris's shirts were less than thermal we had to come in very quickly.
There is a second shoot day scheduled to take care of Peter Wendy and Hook in the Jolly Roger set. Here's hoping that it will work better than the Wendy's bedroom set. Again not announcing who's playing Captain Hook as then something terrible will happen to him to make him not able to do the shoot. There might even be a few other surprises as well.
For right now here's one picture to tide you over.
An excerpt from J. M. Barrie's Adventures of Peter Pan...
"I shall sew it on for you, my little man," she said, though he was tall as herself, and she got out her housewife [sewing bag], and sewed the shadow on to Peter's foot.
"I daresay it will hurt a little," she warned him.
"Oh, I shan't cry," said Peter, who was already of the opinion that he had never cried in his life. And he clenched his teeth and did not cry..."
Come back... there be Pirates here...
