On June 19th, 2004, I was an extra in the production of The Sugar Creek Gang series. SCG is based on a series 36 of books by the same name. This summer, Kalon Media are producing 5 episodes. In this particular episode, there is a plot to ruin the revival set for that afternoon and the kids of the Sugar Creek Gang must solve the mystery.
I arrived at 11:30 AM and shooting began around 12:30. The site was at a pond with a buffet table setup, tables for everyone to eat at and a large covered pavilion where the revival would take place. Shooting did not conclude till 10:00 PM. A very long day.
I had loads of fun watching and leaning what was going on. What did I do? Well I was always in the background but required to pantomime conversations. The microphones are very sensitive to noise, so no actual talking.
I am invited to return next Saturday.
