Weekend Moment Madness
We managed to get permission to shoot in a mortuary, using the prop on top of a casket from the showroom floor. We shot the day time footage at the Keeper under umbrellas! While burning holes in a prop shirt, the clothing turned out to be more flammable than we anticipated, and also smelled like marshmallows. S’mores, anyone?
