Half of THE WHOLE TRUTH is told!

We finished up day #15 of our 30-day shoot, and it was full of good spirits!

The weather was with us - beautiful and sunny with an autumnal crispness in the air - as we shot an exterior scene in the middle of Seattle. Lots of people saw what we were doing and recognized Elisabeth Röhm, even though she was wearing a costume that was supposed to "disguise" her character!

A couple of elderly women approached Sean Patrick Flanery, not recognizing him, asking, "What's happening?"

Typically, SPF responded, "Well, the stock market is taking a real hit now, but if you just sit tight, in another three weeks or so the Dow will-"

Whereupon they interrupted him with, "No! We mean what's happening *here!*" Of course he told them we're making a movie, that it's a comedy and it's called THE WHOLE TRUTH.

Interestingly, throughout this venture, lots of folks think I'm from Los Angeles/Hollywood. Nope, even though I've been told for years that the only way to do what I am currently doing is to move to LA, I've stayed in Seattle because I love my life here.

Now I *really* love my life here because I'm able to do what I love, make a living and create films I hope you will want to see over and over!

For the next week, we're shooting in Tacoma - 30 miles away - so I'll be living in a hotel there since I have to be at work by 5:30a.m. My personal assistant Matt Schmidt will keep the home office fires burning, take care of my pups and kitty, as well as taking care of me at the shoot.

Part II, coming up. And we're all looking forward to it.

    Certainly many people recognize Elisabeth because of her roles in the TV shows "Law & Order" and "Angel". But without dark sun glasses to conceal her very recognizable blue eyes ... I am not in the least bit surprised people realized it was her in disguise.

    SPF ... clever wit and comical ... you make me smile mister.

    Glad you're able to do what you love in the place you love CP.

    Certainly we're looking forward to part II
    ... got to finish telling us the truth ... the whole truth of course.

    Hey Colleen, so glad I found your blog! I had a great time working on your hilarious film this week ( I was the reporter giving SPF the stinkeye when he came into the courtroom and sat beside me). I hope to have a chance to come back to the set and be there for more of this fun and educational process. Thanks for shooting here in the Seattle area, and I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the atmosphere you create on the set. Cheers!
