2nd Week of Filming

So we just finished the second week of filming for the Lloyd Alexander documentary film. We flew into Philadelphia on Saturday night, and really got underway on Monday.

Monday was Lloyd Alexander Day at Arlington cemetery in Drexel Hill, PA, which you can read about in my previous blog post. We were able to go to that and film it for use in the documentary.  We also were able to do an interview with Christopher Tripoli on Monday.

Tuesday we went to New York and interviewed one of Lloyd Alexander's editors, Lucia Monfried. That was a great interview, that will really add some special perspectives to the documentary.

This morning, Wednesday, we finished up this week of filming with a neat interview with George Nicholson in New York. Another great interview, another great week of filming.

This is a really neat project that I feel blessed to be able to work on right now. It is such a wonderful privilege to speak with people that knew Lloyd Alexander. Each one of them has given me such wonderful insights, not only into the life of Alexander, but into what it means to be a human being. Which, perhaps is no coincidence, is a lesson that I think can be found in many of Lloyd Alexander's books. 

Tomorrow, I will fly back home to my wonderful family in Utah, but this has been a wonderful week of filming for the Lloyd Alexander Documentary Film.
