Nonetheless, the second week of filming for “A Marine Story” started at Moonshadow Lounge in NoHo bright and early on Tuesday. Amazing volunteers from within the WeHo community (and our Facebook fanpage!) gathered in their normal Friday night regalia, while sipping coffee and donated doughnuts courtesy of Rockstar Jen Klein.
You’d think the early call would mean a stretch for these women, but let me tell you, these women looked FLY that morn. A casting director couldn’t have asked for a more diverse, HOT group of women to be the background for a lesbian bar scene. And how lucky were we that they all volunteered their hotness for the greater good of storytelling?It was refreshing to note that we had fog machines this time instead of having to fill an entire bar with cigarette smoke (as compared to last week). Even though we didn’t get real alcohol, we did get refreshing “fakes” such as club soda and ice tea to tide us over. And the best part, we got to end the shoot with a real dance party. And dance we did. Dedicated extras Jessica Bair and Sami Hepburn even “artistically stretched” themselves for a hot makeout session for camera.
The producers are incredible appreciative of the volunteers that came out to play with us Tuesday. Your dedication to helping us tell this important story will really make the difference. Real Lesbians in a film about the LGBT community. As it should be.
Here’s a behind-the-scenes vlog from that day’s shoot!
