Big Day at the Big Chill
To quote Sean Van Delft, “we have a big day”. It’s big in so many ways. We’ve been really looking forward to shooting at The Big Chill, the ice cream parlour at the corner of College and Manning. It is a beautiful location. The scenes are very important ones in the story (aren’t they all?) and very funny. We’re going to have lots of extras and many guests… not to mention ice cream from the Big Chill which everyone on the crew is looking forward to.
There are other things that make this day special. It is really our last big day of shooting. We have three days left including today, but by Thursday and Friday we’ll be shooting just smaller scenes. We won’t be working with such a big crew, we won’t have as many cast around. So in some ways, today is the beginning of the end.
That is really sad. It’s safe to say that everyone is having a great time. Several members of the crew have mentioned to me how much they’ve enjoyed being on the project. We’ve been a great team. We get along, we work well together and we have been pretty low on the stress scale even on heat wave days like the last two. All in all it has been a very happy set and when I call this the best crew on the planet, it is not an exaggeration at all.
