Another great weekend shooting on the Penn State Mont Alto campus. Friday we were in the Library and General studies until the wee hours of the morning. Sunday we shot in the Mill Cafe (always nice to be close to great food). Kudos to all the wonderful PSMA students who let us interrupt their meal and employ them as extras.
The first two days of principal photography are behind us and everything went extraordinarily well. Extras were in short demand, but the crew was spectacular and the cast was extraordinary. The only problem we encountered all weekend was trying to get a local biker bar to accept a Swedish driver’s license as ID after we wrapped Sunday.
Ankle deep in the river, shooting preliminary footage prior to the official start of principal photography in September. Braving the water are cinematographer Ed Koester, co-producer Meagan Bert, photographer Thomas G. Anderson (and family), Cory, Kevin Alexander Boon and the indomitable Ellen Bert.
