Later that morning we moved to Sulphur Springs Country Club to film Episode 2: Sloth. In this episode broken hearted Eve indulges pool side in some slothful behavior. But idle hands are the devil's (and Angel's) playground. This shoot was extremely challenging. Not due to the content but due to a meddling local member who got us kicked out just before shooting our final 3 shots. Now let me set the scene. It's a stunning summers day. Blue sky and full sun. The pool is full of little kids. We are positioned discreetly next to the fence, not filming any children. Our cast are in conservative swim suits and Eve is dressed head to toe in black as she is mourning. Then all of a sudden, one of the mother's approaches us and in a thick Texan accent asks, "Are y'all shooting a porn"?
I was mortified and I assured her that it absolutely was NOT! But soon after we were politely asked to leave. Leaving us in the predicament of having to find another pool that we could cheat the final few shots. Also while chasing the sun desperate to beat the sunset. Thanks to Pat's sister, we were able to find a public pool and I condensed the final shots into one! As the last sliver of sunlight left the pool we wrapped! Phew!
And finally by about 2am we were wrapped in Texas and celebrated half heartedly with some s'mores. The next day we jumped on a plane back to NYC where we had one more episode to film.
