Preparing for Providence Movie Teen Scenes

Only two more weekends before we wrap up principal photography for Providence. This weekend is all the school scenes with Teen Rachel and Teen Mitchell. It’s our most complex filming weekend because not only does it involve the biggest group of cast members (most of whom are coming from out of town), but the teen scenes are all period, taking place in the 80’s. So it’s been fun rounding up costumes, props, set pieces, decor, and even vintage cars.

Do you know what this is? It will be used by Teen Mitchell at home and will also be part of the newspaper staff room.

Two period props. I'm excited about the hair dryer since it's just so fun. I'm excited about the tv because of the cool surprise we have in store with it.

Throughout the movie Mitchell always wears sweater vests. It's his signature look throughout the years. Here are a couple of Teen Mitchell's sweater vest looks.

Well, much to do. Out of town actors start arriving tomorrow and I’m not yet ready. A filmmaker’s work is never done.
