Filming took place on January 28, beginning with a 7:30 a.m production meeting with shooting starting at 9 a.m. With the help of all 22 people on set, we wrapped at 7:30 p.m. Most of the day took place outdoors, in the freezing weather, at the Dem-Con Responsible Waste Processing and Disposal Company in Shakopee.
Having grown up elsewhere, Joe was confused by his native colleagues’ short sleeves and liberal re-application of SPF 70, but endured their gentle teasing about his parka and long underwear with his typical good nature. He bravely kept his pinkie toes’ impending need for amputation to himself until almost lunchtime, while Ryan extolled the supportiveness of his flip flops, wondered if his nose would peel and said no less than 16 times after 4:30 p.m., “I can’t believe it’s still light out.”
We’re very proud of how it turned out. Half Smile premiers on Friday, March 10 at 7pm at New Hope Cinema Grill. We'd love for you to join us.
