Hey everyone! Rachel here, just wanted to give you an update on whats been going on here at Wombat headquarters. We are really close to finishing the filming process, I think we have like 5 or 6 fairly easy scenes to get through, but after that we’re golden! We’ve still got some scheduling conflicts to work through- and Mother Nature has been undermining us at every turn (Gahhh!!)- but not to fear my friends, the Wombats will not let you down!
In the past few weeks, everyone has really been stepping it up, the actors are so, so good and its really a treat to watch them work. A few weeks ago, we filmed the lava lair scenes at Mr. O’Malley’s house, where Steph really stepped it up working her art direction magic. We worked a lot on the montage shots this week and making up missed shots- these guys are really too funny. Ross Bubly is one of the funniest guys I know and John Barry is a star! Martin’s sound is perfect as always.
In other news, we’ve been a serious contender for music trivs! Jimmy Martin and myself have really been the ones carrying the team, but never count out the others to contribute a few. Our big contenders seem to be Currant, Avocado, Marionberry and Pineapple- but never fear, friends, Wombat does not go down with out a fight! We are also ordering our tee shirts, what I think they’re going to be orange with Navy blue writing. I am so proud of this crew and how this film is coming out and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
That’s all for me, till the next time a crew member forgets to blog.
Lots of Wombat love, Rachel
