DAY ONE OF THE PRODUCTION PROPER.
Today it all took off. And Dan 'modified' a Ford (see below) which as ceremonious as it may well have been for Raymond to whack a sledge hammer into the grill of a beautiful car, we need his health to be in a good solid condition, for at least the next 27 days. Then he can do what he likes. Which I suspect will take place somewhere at the bottom of a bottle of champagne.
For now De Felitta is on a energy laden diet of raw almonds and fiber rich cereals, which look as good as they taste (a little like cat litter...)
We have gone from slightly tense (the fatal mix of nerves and eagerness) in the early morning, to a more relaxed, yet even hotter, afternoon.
And in the words of Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous": It's all happening!
More mildly irritating quotes later!
