What a day. There's so much to say but so much to take care of before tomorrow (or should I say today?). We battled some harsh, harsh winds for six solid hours. We faced quite possibly the worst filming conditions we could ask for on the first day... and it didn't stop us on bit. Both cast and crew kicked some serious ass today. Hell, we even wrapped 18 minutes ahead of schedule. You will hear all about it, eventually though. Day two is on the horizon and there's plenty to do, so we will leave you with a few images. Enjoy!
