We have a whole new film crew whom I haven't met, but I hear they've been excellent this week!
Lucinda Jenney plays Jeannie Churchill, the widow who owns Churchie's. we ended up combining some characters and re-destributing some dialogue so Lucinda plays a much larger catalyst in the film than the book. Hey, she can slap down a PBR like the best of 'em.
And here's James. I'm loving the lighting in these scenes and also that it takes place in a dive bar. That was the early '90s in Maine. No cell phones. Girls in the '90s just showed up in jeans and t-shirts. Just a free afternoon to wander down to the pub, meet up with random people, play some pool (badly) and chug some beers. Good times. I think we capture this pretty well in these scenes since the story takes place in 1993.
Rack 'em Zak. Zak Steiner seen here looking very much like every fisherman who every picked up a pool cue I've ever met.
Sarah taking her turn. Were they playing eight ball or nine ball? Just hung out with a professional pool player yesterday and showed him this picture. "She's holding the cue a little too high" is what he had to say. C'mon man! It's Sarah Catherine Hook! She looks cute patoot in this scene. Shout out to our costume designer Steph. We've had a lot of discussions this summer what a schooner girl looks like. They nailed SC's look.
Stay tuned as we get more photos from on set. So excited to go into post-production!
