Filming the new Japanese maple grove
Posted by Sharkey
Whenever there's something important going on at the farm, you can be sure that we, Frenchies, will be right in the thick of things. Everyone was talking about Japanese maples and a new maple grove, so we went to check it out. Wouldn't you know it! We found all the action down in the shade garden alongside Maple Avenue! Clever, Martha.
1 Franny, did you hear something about planting a Japanese maple grove?
2 I did hear something is going on down in the shade garden.
3 You're right! Look at all of these colorful maple trees!
4 And here are the shovels.
5 This hole looks like the right size for a tree.
6 Here is a very good book called Japanese Maples. Shaun must be using it as a guide.
7 This shade garden will be very different when all of these trees are planted.
8 Sharkey, do you see what I see? There's a squirrel!
9 Franny, I think we're being watched.
10 Hey you! We didn't sign any release!
11 I've seen this being done so many times - I just know I can be a director of photography. Lights! Camera! Action!
12 That's right Martha! Smile for the camera.
13 Now that I've mastered the camera, I'll try my paw out with audio. Uh-oh - this boom is heavy.
14 Hey, Saeoh, bring that scrim over here. We need to diffuse some light.
15 Do you think Gary Nardilla will be upset that Franny walked all over his brand new scrim?
16 Franny, can you smell any truffles here?
17 Enough work - time for fun and games!
18 Let's have a gnawing contest - who can chew this branch off first?
19 Gee, thanks Shaun - you just spoiled our fun.
20 Sharkey - how dare you run off with my stick!
