Happy Friday virtual crew!
Today was a big day.
We found the cabin we’ll use for Rose’s home in the film!
If you’re unfamiliar with the story, Rose is the protagonist of RECKONING. She’s our hero. The girl who has to stand up to a notorious outlaw.
And I needed a cabin that would sell for her home in the 19th century.
Without further delay, here it is:
I’ve already told you about location scouting. So how did I find this cabin off a lone, gravel mountain road?
Real estate listings.
Yep. Stumbled on an old listing for a cabin and decided to just go for it.
Sandi and Journey, being the adventurous gals that they are, opted to go along for moral support.
You know, it could be the last time they see me. This is the mountains. I didn’t know who owned the cabin, whether they’d be in town, or meet us on the porch with a shotgun.
Fortunately, the owners were there. And they were incredibly kind and gracious. And even better…they said YES! I literally gave the guy a hug. All I have to do is help him learn fly fishing. Done.
And do you want to hear something really cool? It’s so exciting I want to jump up and down: This cabin was built by Private David Rogers. A man who fought in the war of 1812!
BOOYAH!!! Wait, did soldiers say that back then?
Man this is exciting. We’re shooting at a place that existed in 1883, the year RECKONING takes place.
So that’s all I wanted to share. Sure hope you have an incredible weekend. More exciting updates as we get closer to the shoot!
