Filming is scheduled for Sunday, but who knows if it
will happen or not. I would love to say yes, and it seems as though
it certainly will happen, but you really can't tell...

As people get busier, schedules change. A prime
example of this, unfortunately, is what has just happened with Julie Johnson,
our lead actress. Due to increased activity in the film industry
in Vancouver, Julie is no longer able to commit to 'After the Rain'.
As unfortunate as this is, it's better that it happened now instead of
more into the filming. All we can say is that we're sorry, but we
totally understand, and good luck!
When roles come up, they need to be filled however.
After extensive thought and auditions, we have cast Jenna
Simonds the role of Caitlin. Jenna brings
with her a wealth of knowledge and experience, and we're totally and completely
thrilled to have her! A great big hello to Jenna!

Things are going very slowly. Filming has come
to another stand still, as we await our huge shoot on the 24th. This
time we're going to start preparing a couple weeks in advance, instead
of the night before - which can probably help to account for the lack of
progress on previous shoots. However, it isn't easy to juggle everybody's
timetables, school work, social life, and a feature film. Not easy,
but not impossible. Work carries on...

Filming was...interesting. It was a learning day
more than anything else, as only about 6 seconds got shot in about 7 hours.
Not too good, but then again, it was plenty of fun. However, everything
that could have gone wrong, did. Definately a learning experience.

It took about three weeks, but Production has finally
begun! The first day of shooting took place at Elk Lake and took
a record amount of time to get completed. Also, a required piece
for the boom microphone wasn't brought, which forced us to ditch the boom
mic and rely on the camera microphone. It's yet to be seen how that
worked out; it's very possible that we'll have to record voice overs at
a later date. However, everything else went very well. Next weekend
is another day out at the lake, and we hope for weather like today. (Today's
photos are soon to come)

Not much to report, except that for various reason we
have pushed back production almost a month now, which really isn't good.
However, we press on, and try to fit in rehersals every now and then.

It's been a while since an update, as I have been away
on holiday. However, back to business now. Shooting starts
on October 13th now, which is better because most of us would have been
away last Saturday, and we wouldn't have gotten much shot. A cast
read through is scheduled for Thursday, and we plan on testing all of our
new equiptment at the same time, so it should be good. That's all
