Day 8 & 9 of Take Me Home: All Actors on Set!

Day 8 and 9 on Take Me Home was great fun. We shot in a private home both days and had all of our actors on set for it. 

The heat was still intense but we had a bit of A/C so it wasn't completely miserable. It was nice to have seven actors on set for two days but also a bit overwhelming. Since we are a tiny film, we couldn't afford to have bangers to house the actors so we had to make do with seating in the house, which was filled with crew and equipment.

Luckily, everyone was very cool and we made it through just fine. There was one disgruntled neighbor but once she found out we were almost done, she slinked off and left us alone. 

I did have to leave set at one point and try to find a location for Friday's shoot. We had been looking for a trailer park to film at for a long time and we finally made the decision to widen our choices and do some major scouting for the location. It took 5 long hours in a cargo van but we finally found the perfect location in Canyon Country. 

I have one complaint about the whole thing: Cargo vans are not meant for long drives. Enough said.
