Today, (Tuesday – 11/19) we have two scenes to shoot and then it is back to reality.
This past Saturday, I finally had a chance to get a picture of me with the core cast in the Oval Office. You can only imagine how crowded it was in my head, with all of them and more, rattling around trying to get out. My characters have minds of their own. They do things I’d never dream of, and, expect me to get them out of their pickles. Now they all showed up to come to life in video at Left Brain Digital Studios just outside Nashville
Characters! I can’t live with them and I can’t live without them. Later this week, a new web site for the series will be going online. I can’t wait until you all have a chance to meet the cast and the crew. I have no doubt that you will be as impressed with them as I have been.
The actors and crew were a delight. Professional, easy-going – there was not a diva in the bunch. We put up with rain, planes and trains rumbling over our sound, so we did a lot of waiting. No one complained, as they knew this was something special we are all doing. The veteran actors smelled success and that is important. The actors looking for their big break gave it their all, as they too can see the potential here.
Did we save any lives? No. Did we put a man on the moon? No. But when this series takes flight, we will give the viewer a quality show. Yes, we’ll have some serious ideas about how we can stop government by the politicians, for the politicians and of the politicians. We, the people are the owners of this nation.
Abigail Adams has come into her own, so I will head home for a while.
No more changing the toilet paper, no more rummaging for paper towels, no more donut or coffee runs. There will be plenty of peanut M&M’s on the shelves (as well as pretzel ones), if you been worried about the shortage our shoot caused.
I’m am going to take a nice long nap. Probably until about Thanksgiving. And when I give thanks it will be to everyone whose kindness, talent and sense of welcome made me feel at home in a sweet Tennessee autumn.
