India Update June 24, 2010


We just finished up with a full day of scouting and then my favorite, hanging with Persis!  She is so cute!!  She has really come out of her shell and is being silly.  She loves my iPhone.  She was very excited that I downloaded a bunch of new games for her.  We found a great brothel location…as well as some locations for the street vendor scene and the chase/dream sequence.  It was a very good day indeed.  We ended the day/night with one actor who could not come in to read tomorrow.  He joined us at the hotel and read for us on the patio.  He was good so we didn’t mind seeing him tonight!  Tomorrow will be spent casting.



Another great day in Hyderabad…today was spent solidifying our locations here and spending time with Persis (or Priscilla) – the little girl from the Good Shepherd School on the OM campus.  She and Jon are really connecting.

We were in the car most of the day, which makes for some interesting adventures and after awhile, your body gets tired of the stopping and starting – it is a great core work out for sure!  Oh, and the pollution from the cars is enough to make you want to hold your breath forever.  But, the locations we found were amazing – God was leading us to the right people and the right places.  To capture these places on film will be very cool.  We also auditioned one actor tonight who can’t come to the casting session tomorrow.  He reminded me of Telly Savalas…he was a good actor.  He read for the part of Vendor or Mean Indian Man #1 (something like that!).

Here is a verse from Gayle (my mom), for the day: “Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.  He alone is my Rock and my Salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.  My salvation and my honor depend on God.  He is my Mighty Rock, my Refuge.  Trust in Him at all times…pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our Refuge.” Psalm 62:5-8

And…here is our daily update video, showing you some of the things we mentioned above…
