First day of filming!Today was the first day of shooting!  The entire crew worked together like clockwork and in no time we were shooting our first scene.  It’s not the first scene in the movie, but it’s the first scene chronologically (it’s a flashback) where Eunice welcomes Alma to the home.  Edith and Rebecca nailed their parts, and it all went off without a hitch. 

We wish we could say the same thing about the rest of the scenes.  Unfortunately, the cats were not really feeling it today.  We put Marmalade in for his first scene, which was a simple walk down the hallway, and he flopped onto his side and refused to cooperate.  Then we tried Mason, and he said if Marmalade didn’t have to do it, neither did he.  Eventually the trainers were able to coax a performance out of him, but it was not the smooth sailing we had been hoping for.  Hopefully things will go better tomorrow.
