Almost Famous

HoneyFern School has finished up their brief stint as famous people; on Wednesday and Thursday night, we were extras in a highschool football scene for the upcoming movie Neighborhood Watch (tentative title), starring Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill.

This experience, while interesting, definitely took some of the luster off the movies. Mostly, we sat around and waited, cheered for a little bit, listened to the same monologue eleventy-million times and then sat around and waited while the crew re-set the shot or changed the angle or did the lighting. With binoculars we were able to see Ben Stiller (who was pretty funny and did his best to keep warm and make the extras laugh), and we people-watched for hours (and it is quite amazing to watch the people that free pizza and hot chocolate brings out!!).

Heads out of the stars for today, but we will probably do this again. After all, how many people can say they were in a movie? Look for us when you go see it; we are the brown-haired girls shivering behind the big man in the grey sweatshirt in the away stands...
