Join Us. Be In the Movie. Meet Cast & Crew

This coming January 2008, Advent Film Group will be back on location in Purcellville, Virginia for a week to complete “pickup” filming for Come What May. Pickups are part of the post-production process, allowing the filmmakers to re-shoot scenes, add new shots, and get additional coverage footage for film and promotions.

You are invited to join us as we prepare a SPECIAL DAY (in late January) for our supporters to be IN THE MOVIE. Also, meet the cast and crew. Plus get autographs, movie posters, postcards, and T-Shirts.

National Moot Court Championship

Yesterday we filmed some of the Moot Court scenes, especially Austin's climatic ending debate. I can't wait to see that scene edited, with music and all. It's going to be a very impressive scene...

Swapping howdies.

Hi everybody!

Funny how I always post at night when I really need to get to sleep, or I post early in the morning, when I really need to get to the makeup chair. Sorry about that. :-)

We have a big scene tomorrow, and I'm expecting it to be pretty intense. Please pray that it will all go well and smoothly. Thanks.

We are filming off campus tomorrow, and I don't have to be there until 3:30! Yes!! You know what that means-sleep, and lots of it!!!! :-) I'll be heading over to set at 1:30 to run lines with Austin. Even with the late call time, I need to get to sleep. I'm the only one with a late call time, and I don't want to waste it. :-)

Like the title says, it's time to swap howdies. We want to know if you are all still with us with this blog. :-) We love and miss you.

God bless,

Always Music

I'm here in our dorm, waiting to wake Victoria up so she can go practice lines with Austin before the call time this morning. Everything is going well...Yesterday I did my normal jobs, makeup and slate, but I also was able to help with props and set dressing, and I even got to be the AD (Assistant Director) for a couple of minutes. :) It was fun to yell "quiet on the set...roll cameras."

We've been getting some amazing footage. Last night we shot a scene of Austin and Victoria both playing the movie's theme song on their instruments. It was one of those special moments on set. I was rocking my head back and forth, and then I leaned over to look at the sound board, and Jeremy had his eyes close and was doing the same.

I have to go. Thank you all for your prayers.

Update from Natalie

Christina and Victoria are back in Virginia for two more weeks of filming. For three days they're in Lynchburg, VA, at Liberty University, filming different Moot Court scenes. Everything is going well--the girls are glad to be back there at work once again. Victoria was really happy with how the scenes she filmed yesterday turned out.

Please pray:
1. That the girls (especially Victoria) will get plenty of rest.
2. That Victoria won't get sick--some of the crew members have come down with colds.

We had a great time being with the girls again this past week. I'll be posting about this past weekend's trip to Stevenson, Washington, very soon.


Good times

Don't they look nice and spiffy! We try our best to keep him humble...
Waiting on set...Austin, Jake, Me, Shiloh, Katie, and Victoria

On Set

Sign going into the Production Office

We use a very efficient system to communicate with each other...

Once a set is "dressed" and in use, it becomes a "hot set." No one touches anything!

Home Again

This week, we've been enjoying out time at home. It was so wonderful to be at the airport and finally spot our family in the crowd. I missed them so much.

I've had lots of time to go over the script and my lines and it's been good to be able to really look at my character and make sure her character is coming out through my performance. :-)

Since being home, Christina and I have been doing all the animal chores. Natalie and Stephanie have been so gracious to take over them for us while we are gone, so now it's our turn.

Sleep is another thing we've been able to get caught up on. I'm preparing myself to have jet lag again-I don't want to be sleep deprived before we even get there! :-)

I love my job. But, it is hard work too-a lot of research is sometimes necessary(aka, watching movies). Yeah...a lot of studying is involved. :-) Actually, I was told to watch certain movies.

It's been good to be home and see people, but we are itching to get back to VA and get back to work. God is so good to us to give us this time in our lives.

Thank you for thinking of us.

I send out our thanks to the people who commented on this blog, called us, and sent us snail mail. We can't tell you how amazing I felt when I saw the mail pile and saw that Christina and I had 4 pieces of mail in one day!!! I basically ran back to the office, smiling like a goof. We were so happy to hear from you, and you were so thoughtful to send such sweet and thoughtful gifts. Thank you. I think that was the day that I forgot to go have my makeup taken off. I was so excited and happy that the uncomfortable feeling of an inch of makeup didn't affect me. :-)

Thank you. You know who you all are.
