This is one of those stories about cancellations, postponements, and delays that paid off.
Amanda Szymczak is a SAG-AFTRA actress. We tried at least three times to schedule a shoot together. We got rained out a few times and unintentionally sabotaged by a “not as desired” hair coloring. When we finally got our schedules and weather to align, we ended up only having a bit over an hour to get our shoot done.
We only had time (and ability) for one wardrobe set, and since we were shooting in the middle of a bright sunny summer day, very limited options for our setting. But we put on our big girl pants and rocked it as best we could.
