Finally! After many months of scheduling conflicts and other delays we were able to film at the ranch. All the background scenes had been shot, including one in the dugout of Minute Maid Park, the home of the Astros, and one shearing a sheep in a sheep farm. We are just waiting for the big day at the ranch where the bulk of the filming was to take place and today it happened!
We got an early start to be there before seven, because the summer is brutal in Houston. Indeed, the 100% humidity made the 80° temperature feel like we were in a sauna. Within 10 minutes we were drenched in sweat. (The script calls for me to wear a suit and tie.) We persevered and got in a good four hours of filming. All the practice paid off and the lines flowed smoothly and we were able to work quickly. We finished all of sidura d’pas and just have a few more such short scenes left. One more morning such as this and all the filming should be wrapped up. We are scheduled to finish it up next Monday.
