Shooting the Scarlet Cord

This last week found Southern Raised filming an Electronic Press Kit out in Nashville, TN!  We are so excited and look forward to sharing it with you in the near future!:)  I thought y’all would enjoy a behind the scenes look at the film shoot, until you get to see the real thing:)…..that is always my favorite part of a film:)….I love to skip to the “behind the scenes feature”!!!:)  We filmed with Billy Brown and Evidential Productions and have lots of fun stories and moments to share from this fun day!!!

This was the setting for "Soul Going Somewhere," on the grand staircase:)

……………………………………………Our day started with Stephanie, our makeup and hair artist, getting us ready! Meanwhile…..Billy and his assistant, Lance, set up our first film scene.  We started with Scarlet Cord and I loved the setting!  The gorgeous home boasted lovely crystal chandeliers which we had in a couple scenes.

We were so blessed to be able to film this EPK at a gorgeous mansion set outside of Nashville, TN!  The home owners where so very kind and gracious to us all!  They even served us some wonderful snacks to keep all our energy up on this long day!  Thank you for your generous hospitality!

Delicious refreshments served by the gracious home owners!...Thank you!

……………….Through this Electronic Press Kit you will see our hearts and why we do what we do and some of the inspiration that keeps us pressing on!  This is all about Jesus and sharing His message of love and salvation!  We feel honored to be able to serve our Saviour!  I heard a quote awhile back and it convicted me with the reality and truth it conveyed……it said……”No individual has any right to come into this world or leave it, without leaving behind them a distinct and legitimate reason for having passed through it.”  I want my life to have a purpose and our purpose and reason for living is Jesus Christ and His message!

…….The EPK is something that is useful for folks wanting to learn more about us as individuals and hear us as a band…………………………………………………………………………………

This was the interview scene......this was a funny time....lots of "bloopers"!!!:)

The interviews were a lot of fun and a lot of funny!!!  There were tongue tied moments and then there were those times you say something and before you finished you knew that it so did not come out sounding like what you planned!!!!……..Sooooo…..you say take 5!!!:)  During the interview we had opened  a door that led to the second story porch and Billy had positioned his camera in the door jam.  Mama had gone out on the porch to walk around and came back reporting that a swarm of bees had made a home in the eve of the porch and you could hear the swarm humming and buzzing!!!  We quickly decided to shut the door and move the camera all the way inside!  Southern Raised running from a swarm of bees would have made action packed behind the scenes footage!!:)

………………………………….While filming on the grand staircase my bass bridge decided to collapse!!!  Funny how my dear little bass bridge decides to collapse at the most inconvenient times:)….like on stage or on camera!!!……It really should be more considerate!!!…Don’t you think?!:)  It made a very loud pop and a very loud bang!!!  It was funny in that tragic sort of way!!:)…..It scared everyone….especially Billy and Lance!  They thought some lighting fell over but nothing dimmed!  It was rather loud and we quickly repaired it so filming could continue!!!…………………………………………………………..

Billy and Lance hard at work..........they were a lot of fun to work with!
