I am ready to tell you about the film that I was recording for – “Looking Back.” It’s a graduation project, written and directed by Anna, an Emily Carr student.
We spent a couple of nights recording the music at Monarch Studios. The film is a musical short and the song is very lovely.
Here’s writer/director Anna with composer Shane.
And here is my co-star Ariel. She and I did a few musical theatre shows together a long time ago. We did the Wiz where she was Dorothy and I was Auntie Em! It was SUCH a pleasure singing and working with her again!
The first location was care home.
The second location was a gorgeous loft in Gastown.
Ariel, looking ghostly.
I play Maria in the film. There is a “Young Maria” also, and we had to look similar (obviously). So long story short, I cut my hair so that I would have bangs. “Bangs!” says this silly IG post.
More shots of this lovely loft.
The third location was a chapel in Richmond.
The material was heavy, but I enjoyed my headpiece!
I just love being on set and this was a really wonderful experience. Can’t wait to see and hear the final product!
