FIRST MAJOR SHOOT
We spent the afternoon at Eileen's Bellevue Avenue mansion, shooting a few exteriors and many interiors. We will use some of this for our trailer, which will be shown publicly for the first time at the Rhode Island International Film Festival in early August and again on August 13 at the Redwood Library, which is hosting Hedgerow at the Redwood. Everyone is invited to attend both.
Here are a bust of Eileen, by celebrated sculptor Felix de Weldon, next to the grand piano in the foyer; producer/writer Wayne Miller contemplating the main library fireplace, a key symbol in the film; director Dave Bettencourt and assistant Calvin Miller shooting the entry hallway; and Dave and Cal lining up a shot in the main library. Beryl Slocum Powell was our gracious guide today, and, as always, we thank her and the entire Slocum family.
