–Okay okay, that’s the last time I’ll make that cheesy reference to our food star.
With lunch behind us we moved back into the apartment and prepped for the dinner scene. They scheduled two days to shoot this scene, thoughtfully dividing into more manageable time usage. (I’d like to think so anyway)
Soon vegetables were ready for our grubby hands to be all over them.
I knew there was going to be a lot of fake (or not so fake) face stuffing but I couldn’t help marvel at how neat this scene was going to be.
Hellooooooooo jarlsberg fondue!
What isn’t pictured here are the glasses of “wine” (grape juice) we had. For some reason, I felt compelled to completely down whatever was put in my glass. It made sense for my character to do it, at the moment anyway.
The scene was thrilling to be a part of. Each take brought about new life to the words in the script. There were a few pages of dialogue to burn through and with so much back and forth, there were also a great many angles to shoot them in.
It was closing in on a 12 hour day by the time we wrapped but there’s always that bit of adrenaline that runs through you post-day wrap and this day was no different.
Again, I feel blessed to be part of this very rad experience.
