Remember back when I did RAYMOND, I posted about how much I love dinner scenes in movies?
BAM, another dinner scene—YES! But, I’m getting ahead of myself. From the top, shall we? -The crew wasted no time in setting up a wardrobe/make-up hub in the bedroom.
It was day 2 for me, and a special one: Meat and potato scenes with Parry. (2005 Tasi, this one is for you!) Or in this case, onions.
It was a fun scene, albeit, a quick one to shoot despite having to burn through numerous takes. The crew started working on what would be the next scene.
In the meantime I had a chance to finally meet the other members of the cast, Dave Boyle and Sheetal Sheth. I couldn’t help but feel the odd man out as Parry and Lynn have known Dave for some time and were in a couple of films; Lynn was in”WHITE ON RICE” and “SURROGATE VALENTINE” (Parry was in this one). And with Sheetal, well, Lynn has worked with her numerous times in the past. Nonetheless, they were all really warm and pleasant. In fact, everyone on set was!
We squeezed another scene in before we broke for lunch.
Lunch! I gotta say, they kept us well fed and with all sorts of goodies. Here’s the delicious spread provided by La Mediterranee.
Through Lynn’s blogs and effort, there were a lot of donated snacks for craft service like these Byron Bay cookies and crispbreads + Honey Ridge Farms honey cremes!
Going back to Lynn’s connections to goodies, we had a whole lotta quality cheese on set to create our character’s fondue appetizer. Meet the Jarlsberg Swiss…
That ^ ultimately creates this:
I made sure not to stuff myself too during lunch because there was still the first half of the dinner scene to be shot which included acting and stuffing of prop foods–and in some cases, pretending to stuff yourself with prop foods…but the fondue will have to wait until tomorrow, fundue tomorrow…get it?
No? Tough crowd.
(I was being a total photoklutz and didn’t take as many photos as I wanted to–so I’ve been borrowing a lot of Lynn’s photos. She’s an amazing blogger–visit her blog, The Actor’s Diet, GO!)Follow @tasialabastro
