So today was an important day for production: we found our first big location for the outdoor scenes. After receiving a suggestion from Professor McInerney of the English Department, Meredith and I headed to Rolling Hills Park near Gladwyne. Our assessment: take two parts The Evil Dead, mix in one part Nosferatu (the exteriors anyway), and add a liberal dash of that terrifying forest from Snow White (when you’re a child, that forest is messed up) and you’d have the park. In the best possible sense. So I guess the area might just work for the exterior scenes that bookend the script.
I’m attaching some pictures of the area to help you get an idea of what it looks like, but I’m purposely hiding the site of the film’s finale; there have to be some surprises left for the premiere!
