Day 3 of shooting Chrysalis

By yesterday the other principal actors had arrived. Joshua Loren (Anthony) arrived the night before. Joshua Mascareñas (Michael) and Katherine Sandridge (Dani) arrived in the morning. I shot one scene between Michael and Nadia that pulled at the heart strings. Because of the rainy weather, we shot inside on the green screen. I’m still not exactly sure what will be the background.

There was also a wedding scene shot and an adorable scene with the kids playing practical jokes that I was not in.

Today, we had a very cold shoot by some rubble for an aftermath shot of an earthquake in Turkey. We had a lot of extras participate, which really helped bring the scene to life! I am always thankful for those that help out as extras!

Our extras…


It was way too cold for Joshua Mascareñas and I to take a photo on the set, so we took one later.


Afterwards, I got my make-up done and we shot a date scene. Thanks to Bailey Bennett for doing such a great job with my make-up!



We have a few more scenes to shoot today before we wrap! Check back for more updates!
