When you have a low-budget film, sometimes (and by sometimes I mean most of the time) you have to get nice and creative to make things happen. Today's example - church scenes. For some reason the churches that Ed talked to were the least helpful in letting us use their space. Somehow I find that to be 100% ironic. Regardless Ed had to use his good old ingenuity to think of a replacement. The solution: His back yard.
He actually did a pretty good job turning the back patio into a nice wedding scene with some chairs, flowers and a little bit of fabric. We only had 7 extras show up, so not the wedding crowd we'd hoped for, but you make do. Also the groom never came so one of the guests got upgraded. Lucky guy.
We filmed two church scenes in the back yard. The other one was a scene where I go to one of those high-octane churches to get the preacher to slap me in the forehead and thus cure my rhyming. Fun fact: During this scene I forgot to change my pants, so the costume I'm wearing is actually for the end of the film. But it's the same shirt, so we're hoping it won't be too noticeable...even though I just pointed it out...
Shooting happened to run from about 9-3 thus causing me to miss both sessions of General Conference today.
Lunch: Panda - my fortune today said, "An admirer finds you charming."
