Phase One is Wrapped on The Other One!

13 days of filming down and 4 more to go.  Yes, we thought we were going to film this is 10 days, but alas, “the best-laid plans of mice and men often go astray.”

Here are some shots by the crew and screenshots to share from our days in Galena, IL. We’d hope to have shared more of these from earlier on, but… we’ll avoid repeating ourselves.

Phase Two will be be fast upon us for 2 days of pick-ups and then soon after that we will have a whole host of high schoolers join us for our final phase of filming which will also be a stand alone short film titled Eclipse.  Be sure to like us on facebook and click the link to subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to know what’s next for our movie The Other One!

The People of Galena Steal our Hearts

 We have been overwhelmed by the talent, kindness and support we have received from the people of Galena, IL.  This is definitely an AMAZING PLACE to shoot and we have loved everyone’s kindness.

Galena Illinois local support for feature film The Other One

This morning, on our last day, we had another local, just swing by the house bearing gifts of Chewy Peanut Butter Bars, Oatmeal Jumble Bars, Cuties, and individually wrapped trail mix bags.  

One special shout out needs to be made to the father of our little local star Cole, Chad Kruse.  One very important prop had been forgotten back in Chicago, a man’s wedding band, and he graciously offerred his, not only for the day we were shooting but for the time being, until we finished the shoot!  This is such an important piece of jewelry not only for the film, but for him personally, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the generous share.

BIG THANKS TO THE PEOPLE OF GALENA, AND ESPECIALLY THE KRUSE FAMILY!
