1) I had Ted and Matt doing about 75% of the shooting last Sunday and it was a tricky shoot. No matter which way you looked, there was either the house, a swing, a pile of cut wood or a burn pile with a million dollars worth of spent fireworks boxes. I have not seen all of the footage yet, but what I have seen is great. There are only two shots where they caught 'civilization' in the scene and both can be cropped or edited out.
2) One of the kids from next door asked to see the stuff we shot and so I showed him some of the web stuff. Max, my younger, said, "Doesn't my dad have a really cool movie?" That warms the heart!
