Today was a magical day.
13 hours for a video shoot.
6 cast members (Henry: Cole Hubbard; Frankie, aka Super Ninja Gummy Bear: Kavi Collins; Kevin: Joshua Rodriguez, Huntington Frienderson the Third: Jonathan Coomer; Dad: Ryan Hubbard; Little Brother: Josiah Snead)
Tech Teams (Tyler Scott, Brian Zimmerman, Tyler Hirth, Josh Hendrick, Timmy, and later: Greg Saffles, Dakota Diel)
best assistant ever: emmy hendrick
catering: michele coomer
best sharers ever: brandon and leslie schell – shared their treehouse, their home, their time, their workshop… so grateful.
i wanted to tell a story of a group of friends that are nice to each other.
i wanted to show a parent that loved his child.
so the story has all of these things.
then i got a cast…kids that have real lives, real stuff in their lives, kids that have Jesus in their hearts, kids that are loving to others.
then i started to rehearse with the cast, and realized i didn’t just want this to be a one time experience for the several hundred people that will come to the musical, but i wanted to share the story bigger than that. i would have to have it on video, to be able to do that.
i called jason dyba.
he agreed that it was a worthy story and talked to tyler scott about the video project.
today, as we spent 13 hours shooting, don’t think i didn’t wonder if i had asked for too much… it was alot.
but our kids deserve it!
those that see it… need to learn from it.
i am so grateful to everyone who participated in any of the process that led to today. i will continue to be grateful as we continue to work on things and get them ready for the production. ..
i did, bust it … backwards… and fall OUT OF THE TREEHOUSE. what in the world!
nothing like taking one for the team. i’d do it a million times over. today was a magical wonderful day.
