On set


Monday, Mark and I filmed Lemons for Christmas with the help of four very amazing people. It was an experience unlike any I'd ever had before and I felt so lucky to have been able to take part.


Our two actors were professional, believable, and just plain fun. I wasn't expecting such nice, down-to-earth people who could also reliably turn into characters on command. The upshot? I highly recommend Myranda and Jim for all of your filmmaking needs.

Mike Fink was equally astonishing as a director of photography. Mark hasn't taken a cinematography course yet...but I think he got about a month's worth of education in those six short hours.


And don't forget Ken, who lent us his lemon tree, his greenhouse...and actually his entire house...for a very long afternoon.

A huge thank you to the entire team, who turned a student project into an event! Six hours of filming should turn into six minutes of video...we hope.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this video when it's finished. Is Mark planning on uploading it to Youtube at some point? If not, would he consider doing so?
