Today we kicked off filming for Providence. We always like to start shooting with fairly easy scenes, so we started with the Adult Rachel at home scenes. Which were easy filming-wise, but included a lot of the emotional scenes for Rachel, so actress Juli Tapken got to jump in full force.

We have this running joke that we always include scenes where actors are doing our housework. In Flowers for Fannie we had Pat Binkley polishing our china and washing dishes, Patti Nicole Wheeler swept and dusted, and Anighya Crocker mowed our yard. Today we had Juli sweeping the porch, and she did a wonderful job. It’s a really fun, suspenseful scene.

My favorite scene of the day, though, was when Rachel visits the accident site where her childhood friends were killed. Such a beautiful scene, and Juli really poured out the emotion.

Despite it being our first day, we ended up finished ahead of schedule and decided to squeeze in two bonus scenes. So that was a nice surprise. Looking forward to filming day two  tomorrow when Rachel goes to work as a photographer.
