Writer/director Grant LaHood and producer, Alan Brash, were delighted to hear Grant’s charming comedy/drama come to life at its first ever table read at a Girl Guide hall in Takapuna yesterday.
Many thanks to the very talented Alison Quigan, John Sumner, Rachel Forman, Ryan Richards, Andrea Kelland, Adam Gardiner, and first-timer, Scout Maclachlan (brilliantly inhabiting the role of a cocky 14 year old farm girl). Big thanks, too, to Jackie Clarke who had the most to do reading the directions!
We learnt heaps and we delighted and humbled by the talent and generosity on display. We have some great feedback to take into our next draft which we can’t wait to dive into!
Thanks, too, to the New Zealand Film Commission for the Early Development Funding that helped make it possible.
