Here are some more pictures

I have finished editing to the point where the film is assembled and now I am working on fixing up the ugly cuts.
There was one in particular that was really bugging me. It is a scene where Emily is instructing Lucy to clean her room and then come help in the kitchen. The problem was that I messed up in the shooting. My master was fine but the medium and closeup shots, I did not have the actors enter and leave the frame as they did in the actual action in the master. This was bad since the only cut I have to get out of the scene was a jump cut and that is ugly. I was talking to Lorraine about this in general and she said "You dont have to use every shot". Then last night in a moment of clarity I realised the solution. She was right but did not take it far enough. It occured to me that that scene in particular does nothing to move the story forward. I can cut it altogether and the issue goes away.

Any way here are some frame captures from the show.

I didn't realize how big the role of Lucy was. That girl worked hard.

Too bad you couldn't get Kelly Bishop to play the snob mom.

Those gypsies are tight. 'Specially the really cute one.
