Just been so much fun and so much awesome talent on the set. terrific. We haven’t hit any major snags, some minor ones of course but we’ve been getting through swimmingly thus far, or skatingly.”
McKort said after today they are taking a Christmas break and will still be shooting in January.
Local Julio Mateo is part of the crew and also an actor in the movie.He landed a part in the movie as a a teacher, a semi feature with one line. On Friday he was assisting with audio.
