Team GDE

Team GDE assembled on location today for rehearsals and a kick-off production meeting, as we gear up for the first official day of filming tomorrow. Cast and crew had their game faces on, and are eager to get it started!

In addressing the team and admiring their work ethic, Eric again made the comparison to the world of professional sports—an analogy that's never far from mind, having Chris Cooley as an executive producer on the project! Our team of actors, producers, camera ops, editors, sound techs, gaffers, electricians, makeup artists, stunt coordinators, art directors, wardrobe supervisors, crafties, and production assistants
(Whew! I think that's all of us!)—we function very much like a pro sports team. The hierarchy of team owner, coaching staff, and players all working together is actually very comparable to a movie set. And rather fitting, considering an NFL star is actually part of this team.

Also fitting was the first thing I noticed when I arrived at the location this afternoon—this awesome truck from Easterns Automotive, emblazoned with Cooley riding shotgun. The real Chris will be on set this weekend, and films his scenes early next week. No
truck graphic stunt doubles allowed. ;)
