Lite rehearsal

Man it was great I went out and did a lite rehearsal with the kids. We did the outdoor scene where the kids are climbing Mt. Rainier. It was really interesting. What it showed me was all these scenes are going to take a long time. For example: to do a small scene where they had to look like they were hiking. It took like 30 minutes. It was just a half a page of script. The kids also did pretty well but I had to go thought this process where first I talked about the scene. Then I explained the dialog. Then we rehearsed the dialog in place about five or six times. Then we acted out the scene about three times. And it was only after all of that that they got into the natural rhythm of it and did it well. That’s a lot of stuff. So anyway I need to make sure we plan for that. It was also good to go out and actually see what would be involved logistically to do each of these scenes. I realized that, we have to get there. Then you have to have helpers to help with little things. Also the kids are restless and want to play a lot, so they will need lots of breaks. But the good thing is that they are learning. The more we did it the faster they learned. I think once we get into the rhythm of production things will not take so long. The main thing I learned was it’s going to take a long time to do anything but with lots of practice the kids are pretty good. And rehearsal helps definitely.
