Busy, busy day today! We had some friends come over in the afternoon to film the Grand Ice Cream Shuffle. The fake ice cream we made ended up working quite well. It did start to melt a little after two hours or so, but that’s certainly better than real ice cream, which would have melted within the first fifteen minutes.
We filmed most of the afternoon and got about an hour of footage. Afterward, we cleaned up and had some real ice cream, being slightly ahead of schedule.
Then we loaded up the vans with equipment and costumes and took it over to a friend’s house where we could set up a small fire in their yard. We brought along hot dogs and marshmallows, but didn’t get around to eating them until 7:00 PM or so, since the filming took longer than we had anticipated. But I think we all had a good time, despite the freezing weather.
