Mugging for Mike. Ms. Underwood smiles for my camera between takes. At this point I was what the Director called a "bogey" (a non-extra who is potentially in the shot).
Getting ready to shoot. Snow on the ground. Mid-30 degree temps. Ms. Underwood is dressed for summertime, but she's got a space heater pointed into the phone booth. The guy in the blue short-sleeve on the right side of the picture with no space heater is an extra.
Rolling. In character. Sans space heater. Brrrrr.
02/14/2006, 2:15 p.m. Update: A couple of the Carrie Underwood fans among the throng massing to this link today have clarified for me who she is: she's an American Idol winner (guess it shows that I don't watch that program or keep up with popular trends in Country music). Thanks to the fan sites that linked Enclave and vaulted my stats to numbers I never imagined Enclave might attain.
02/14/2006, 4:00 p.m. Update: My favorite comments on one of those fanboards publicizing these pictures are about my Underwood-cluelessness:
casper: ... Interesting that the person taking [the pictures] didn't know who Carrie even was.I will post one more picture that I took of Ms. Underwood at yesterday's video-shoot this evening between 7:00 and 8:00 CST, just to say thanks to all you Underwood fans for stopping by. You all have a keener appreciation for these pics than I do.
ocean18: Yeah that was interesting. How do you not know who Carrie Underwood is?! I love her outfit. I want that!
02/14/2006, 7:40 p.m., Update: Here is the only other picture I took of Ms. Underwood yesterday that I did not previously publish.
Hanging up the phone.
