Production Diary #1 - Press Photos and Bar Trivia

L to R: Patrick Truhler (Archie); Adam Harrell (Director); Lizzie Bell (Photographer)

Actors Hallie Schwartz and Patrick Truhler paid a visit to our makeshift studios this week to begin production on BIRDS OF PARADISE. Since no production photos of the show exists (video only), the first step was staging some photos that could be used to promote it.

Hallie and Patrick braved the awkwardness of striking a pose over several hours, and over the course of our discussions it was decided that all superstar pop singers will eventually reach a phase in their careers where they do a music video that is simply them standing in front of the camera singing. It's science.

After we burned through some digital film it was off to the local watering hole to get some primo bonding
time in with the cast and crew, and as luck would have it, it was trivia night. Our team name was "Birds of Paradise", naturally, and although we were riding high in first place at halftime, the spirits snuck in our heads and stole our brains, leaving us in 3rd place when it was all said and done. Word of advice: the country whose name literally means "Nation of Bengals" is Bangladesh, not Bangalore (I bring shame to bar trivia).

Any-hoosiers, we got some great production photos, all of which will be made available on the website soon as soon as the digital photo elves spread their retouching pixie dust. And we've got show dates, more production diaries, logos, posters, and more in the works. Stay tuned, and thanks for reading!
