Part Three: Filming a Scene at Katie’s Cottage

After a quick browse through the craft services food cart where we stuffed our faces with chips, fruit, and pretty much anything else free we could get our hands on, we headed back to the cottage area to watch the filming. Being on a movie set is a lot of hurry up and wait, so when it finally came down to film the scene, all 50+ people hushed right away and got down to business. At first we saw Julianne and Cobie Smulders, who plays Jo in the movie and whom you might (a.k.a. WILL) recognize from the show, How I Met Your Mother, getting primped with hair and makeup. Before the scene officially started, Cobie came over to her chair (right near where we were standing) to put her phone down. It fell. But instead of being all diva celeb, Colbie said, “Hi ladies! Oh, don’t worry about it” and then laughed that her phone was nestling among the trees in the woods. So down-to-earth, guys.

Anyway, both Julianne and Cobie were in this scene, the one where their characters first meet, and we watched them film it about 10 different times. Each time was a tad bit different — some times they’d change the script around or add in a bit of improv — but it was really exciting to see how much time and effort goes into one 3-minute scene. Then that was a wrap! Well, for that scene at least…

    I was listening to Radio Baha\’i this past weenekd when I heard a commercial that did not settle well with me. It stated that if you were racist, sexist and several other things then you did not belong in the Baha\’i Faith. I thought about the message and myself and wanted to write to you because I have been a Baha\’i for 40 years and I have struggled with all of those things within the arms of Baha\’u\’llah. Some of them I have overcome and some I am still struggling with. I am glad that I have had the struggle within the Faith instead of outside it and would like to ask you to reconsider that commercial to say that if you are having problems with these issues then the Faith is for you. We are not perfect and we struggle, but if you know that your feelings are troubling you, look to the Faith for assistance. It seemed to me that the commercial was pushing people away and surely we are an embracing community despite all of our faults. and struggles. Thank you
