Everyone arrived about 10:15. It took a little while for the kids shyness to wear off, but after a while the performances we were getting were great. Cut some stuff out of the dialogue (haha silent film) to make it easier on them, and got some great ideas for some camera angles.
The props turned out really well, although I over-engineered the book so it wouldn't fall apart and now it doesn't open all the way. *sigh*
Have plenty of duct tape to mount the tripod to the ladder, though!
This is fun!
We'll start shooting after lunch. Everyone is on break now.
