We left Tulsa about thirty minutes ago.
We’re excited to be going home and also feeling terribly excited and proud that we’ve got a movie in the can. We just barely fit everything in my little car.
Ryan has grown a couple of new gray hairs but is very excited about the movie. He has a large very caffinated cappuccino and a determination to drive as far as he can tonight. Then I take over. I drove to Tulsa by myself. It’s nice to not only have help driving back; but to be the help!
I like being a wife. Being a movie producer ain’t so bad either… when it’s all said and done.
We’ll say more about the whole month of production once we get back to LA and get a chance to sleep.
Here we are at Topeca Coffee on our last day of filming with full crew. The Oklahoma winds are making their effects known outside and inside crew peeps are sleeping behind flags. We called background actors for 5 pm but we won’t need them for several hours so we’ve had to ask them to wait.
We’ve got a wrap party tonight at Jim and Nancy’s and a light day of MOS pickups tomorrow. Monday is for cutting the last few checks and making returns. Ryan and I will try to drive back on Tuesday. A giant storm is supposed to sweep the southwest from Tuesday until Friday. So Ryan and I will take a more southerly route to return to Cali…
Here’s a pic of the set today. And one of me and SP, our Locations Manager/Production Coordinator
We’ve reached day 23 of 25.
We were supposed to shoot only 24 days but we had to push a few things. Tomorrow is a day off (for crew) and then we’ve got a day of shooting at Topeca Coffee and then a few day exteriors around Tulsa.
Below is a pic of us outside Jewel where we just wrapped. We had a great time at Jewel. Lots of great music, great performances, great shooting and great moments.
Here’s a quick photo from the set as we prepare to shoot Round Three of the Karaoke Competition.
What does a producer do? Right now, I am waiting at the airport for our publicist.
I joined one of our lead actors, Marshall Bell, this morning at two radio inteviews. One with Chuck and Greg at The Edge and one with Jason at The Sound.
The company is shooting away now at The Jewel on Brookside right now. Everything is looking great…
And finally, here is Ray Seggern, our publicist. Welcome!
