It's a Wrap!

Great shoot, everyone.
Yesterday at the Boys and Girls Club of Concord, New Hampshire, we had a blast shooting a Public Service Announcement (PSA) for the 7DayPSA Competition.  More than 40 actresses drove from points in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island to join in the fun.


We shared a ton of fun, a whole bunch of "hurry up and wait,"
and many rehearsals.  (Never mind who taught you the slightly not quite right handclap movements in the lobby before you went to the gym, ladies!)  Okay, okay, it was ME...I admit it.

And now, while the actresses and our incredibly talented and dedicated crew have returned to life as normal, we last few will be up editing into the wee hours of the night, both here in Portsmouth, NH (visuals) and in Savannah, Georgia (audio).  

And tomorrow a couple of us will drive the final versions -- a 60-, 30- & 20-second PSA -- from here in Portsmouth to Providence, Rhode Island.  By ten o'clock p.m.  And Friday I will sleep.  Maybe.

What an incredible ride--thanks, all, for participating!
