Wedding & Country Club Scenes

I confess that I knew nothing about how movies are filmed. I still know very little, but it was fun observing the process. My first day on the set of MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS, one of the producers (and they were all so generous and kind) handed me a headset. Through it, I could listen to actors saying their lines and to the director overseeing the action. If you look hard, you can see small TV screens, where we watched each take after take. Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll find a better close-up of the action on the screens.

Filming Stuff

March 15, 2014

I am amazed and humbled at all the great comments, posts, and emails I received after announcing that MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS is being made into a Hallmark movie. Honestly, it feels like friends–and even strangers–are sharing my joy, which makes them pretty wonderful.

I’ve learned something about the filming process, even though I won’t see it in action until next week. Am I the only one who pictured movies being shot in chronological order? I’ve been able to see the day-by-day camera, crew, and actor schedules–and they’re all out of order. I’m guessing it may have something to do with shooting at various locations? But I can’t imagine being an actress and memorizing the lines, then having to do scenes out of order. Glad I’m way behind those cameras….

MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS–The Movie!

Right this very minute, my character, Bailey Daley, is coming to life–how cool is that! MY BOYFRIENDS’ DOGS, a funny, romantic novel I wrote a couple of years ago, is being turned into a Hallmark movie that will air the end of this year. The movie will keep my title, my characters, and even the three dogs–Adam and Eve and Shirley. Erika Christensen plays the lead, and she’s a wonderful actress (stars on Parenthood, in the movie Traffic, and many more). I couldn’t be happier with the script, which stays close to the book (and from what I hear, that’s not always the case). AND, I get to go to Vancouver to see part of the filming! I’ll be heading there on March 24, which just happens to be my birthday. I’ll keep you posted!
