Paul Mercurio and his Mercurio's Menu crew paid us a visit.
Bren called them the day before to warn them to come prepared because we'd had over 70mm of rain and it was muddy, so they all turned up with matching, brand new, shiney gum boots. Look at the glare coming off them!
This was the prefilming production meeting where we planned the order of filming, the route we would walk and the menu.
And from then on this is what we were looking at for most of the next few hours.
We spent ages walking around the farm and doing each shot over and over from different angles and wide and narrow and with talking and without.
At one stage near the end when the filming was over and everyone was packing up, some of our favourite customers Deb, Alia and Michael turned up. They were so gorgeous and enthusiastic that Paul's producer made the camera man and the sound man unpack to film them shopping.
They were such good sports buying their vegies and eggs over and over again.
A final word of warning to anyone considering doing television appearances. If it is cold then wear your jacket in the first scene, otherwise you will not be allowed to put it on later on for reasons of continuity. It'll be interesting to watch my lips gradually turn bluer and bluer, I wonder how that works in this whole continuity thing.
