With the evening of Saturday, June 17th, targeted for the start of filming, we carved out three days for rehearsals from June 14th through June 16th. I rented a home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, about a mile from the primary filming. This allowed for uninterrupted space and time to have the talent go through their parts.
More important, it was a time to build camaraderie as we all went through our paces with Gianmaria Bonacchi.
Gian is a famous Italian actor and Drama Coach. He assisted me in working with the talent in preparation for the principal shooting. He did an outstanding job.
