The cast and crew of Kandy had two hours to do one final rehearsal before shooting the short feature film – next weekend.
It was a jam-packed two hours of meeting the hairdresser, having the first round of publicity photos taken, making wardrobe decisions, a round-table read-through (sans scripts) and finally a rehearsal shoot, complete with lighting.
Despite learning that there’s a lot of sitting around on set during these productions, the energy levels were high in anticipation of the polish required for the final performance in front of the cameras in a week’s time.
It was the first rehearsal for the cast and crew of Kandy today – a full-on two hours on location to introduce ourselves to each other, run through the production schedule, read through, block in scenes, work out camera logistics, make some big decisions about styling and wardrobe and to generally get a feel for what will be an intensive few weeks in production.
The cast is:
Kandy – Billie Palin
Violet – Erifili Davis
Valerie – Brenda Allen
T-Bone – Justin Riley
One more rehearsal is planned before the shoot starts on 30 August. It’s an important time for the production, with every single member of cast and crew now impacting on everyone else involved. It’s down to business, and the reality that the film business isn’t really all that glamorous!
