On this day, we were land-bound, but right next to the ocean, the entire time.
In this scene, which goes back to the Maine Lobster Festival, Thongchai, Tadpole, and Jamie have an encounter with the Fogerty boys, Ev, Kenny, and Russell.
In rehearsal, a flock of birds interrupted the scene.
Zak, just going with it.
Kip Weeks, a former lobsterman, as Ev Fogerty, and Gabriel Perez playing Kenny Fogerty. This is just a rehearsal scene. We ended up moving locations for the actual scene where the actual exchange between Tadpole and Ev takes place.
This is part of the boardwalk owned by Larry Reed, owner (and an all-around great guy) of Eclipse of The Pearl, who let all of our extras hang out for this scene. Also in this scene is Billy Wirth's nephew, Alec, who is playing Russell Fogerty.
We turned the little park right next to the police station into a side lot of The Maine Lobster Festival and had to decorate it as such. We got real footage of MLF earlier in the summer. Thanks to the Mac Attack food truck, we also got a giant inflatable lobster for this scene!
We're giving a big shout out to the extras who waited all day on set!
Alec as Russell and Billy as Dale. "TEAM FOGERTY"--they're going to make a t-shirt out of it.
Sarah Catherine in costume as Happy, waiting for the scene at "The Maine Lobster Festival" to resume.

And here comes trouble in the form of Kip (Ev) and Alec (Russell).
Stay tuned as we post more photos/videos on Facebook and TikTok. We just started an official Instagram page too, so please follow!
