This past weekend was a whirlwind, as our dancers donned python prints and traded their feathered boas for the real thing. We were mesmerized by Jason Raimondi's virtual roadshow of slithering creatures, and shocked by the size and docile nature of the snakes. 

I once heard it said that if you want to shoot a film, leave animals out of the picture; They are unpredictable and you can't control what you get. I suppose we were all guilty of those features this weekend, and what we captured was beyond our wildest imaginings. 

This second shoot came to a close after the first day, and I was left pouring over a store of some of the most magical clips and photos I could have imagined. Now, with one last intro scene to put to film in the coming month, we are nearing the end of the track.

Django and Whinny fell head-over-heels for our starlets, and our starlets for them.

To top it all off, Christian Dickey stopped in on the set with his family's 1962 Rolls Royce. He'll be returning in July to take Anton up the hill in the capstone to this little flick we've made, which will become the intro to our musical art-film.

This wild ride is nearing an end. Words can't express or describe my awe of those who've bestowed upon this project their support and talents. There is so much more to share and I have been overwhelmed just pouring through the photos and film clips. Can't wait to see you all at the premier and art show this Fall. Don't be a stranger,  now, ya' hear?
