Thanks for keeping up with the ACCH blog!! Things have been busy and very productive at the ACCH production offices in Smithville! Our week started with location manager Kaliska Ross leading the way on tech scouts to all of the ACCH filming locations. Jake Kuykendall and set decorator Susan Lamarca continued their work on creating the ACCH sets. Jake also found us a really cool old Studebaker station wagon, which main character Ellie will be driving in the movie. Our leads Imogen Poots and Mackenzie Davis arrived in town this past weekend for the final stretches of pre production. In between rehearsals with Anna and getting to know the crew and locals, Ryan, Imogen and Mackenzie were fitted for their costumes and tested for hair and make up looks by hairstylist Alissa Shores and make-up artist Ashley Rae Hancock. Casting for the film was completed as well and we are excited to announce that Mary McCormack will be joining the ACCH cast!
We now have less than 3 full days to go before we start filming and we could not do it all without the help of the rest of our dedicated production team. Our 1st and 2nd AD's, Producers, 1st & 2nd AC's, Production Co-ordinator, PA's, interns and accounting team have been working around the clock to prep everything from scheduling and transportation to camera prep and extras photo shoots. We are so grateful to have them all on board and can not wait to start shooting on Monday!
