Much happened in the 7 months we worked on this film. Many things to this day I cannot explain. Nor can my cast. Do I believe in ghosts? A year ago I would have said no but so many things happened while making this film that I don't know what to believe anymore.

I really must praise my film crew from the actors to the people behind the scenes. My friends really came through for me too! Most of my actors were inexperienced when they began this journey. I enlisted a man to train them in a crash course on acting using the "Meisner Method". We met every Thursday once a week for 6 weeks.

People stayed and some left and I ended up recasting this film 3 times before I felt that I had people I could rely on who would stick it out. From reading this journal you have a small idea of all the things that can go wrong when making a film. And some of the hardships we endured.

I must say that I chose my cast well. I have only the deepest admiration for all their efforts to make this the best film possible and to work so dilligently with someone most of them barely knew. I consider them all my friends now. We have gone through so much together and I hope they feel the same. But it is not over yet. There is still the screenings, the film festivals, the promotion and distribution.
