Photo #1. Michael Bowen and James Phillips pose for a picture after a shoot day in the Chapultepec set.

#2. Although never seen acting in this costume, Becket wore General Bazaine's costume while he was controlling the boom mic. He really just wanted to put the pants on.

#3. Faustina Bowen makes a final costume adjustment and makes sure the wound on General Miramon's head looks just right before the camera rolls.

#4. The many hats of actors and crew! Pictured here, Faustina Bowen runs the boom mic while waiting for her turn to act.

#5. Michael Bowen and Frank Lawrence pose with their swords after a film day.

#6. A short break in between shots.

Photo #1. The Conservative Mexican army gets into position to wait for the charge.

#4. Michael Bowen poses for a picture with his younger brothers and sister.

#5. The Liberal army prepares their charge.

Photo #1. Gabriel Pimental rehearsed lines to himself before a scene. 

#2. Actors wait for their hair and makeup to be applied before a scene. We apply a simple, natural makeup look on all our actors, even extras. This look amplifies natural variations without making actors look like they obviously are wearing it on screen.

#3. Mary Bowen films the military planning scene with the crew behind her helping record the volume. Our first two films were recorded on an iPad.

#4. Declan Bowen sights his replica musket while the soldiers await further commands.

#5. The conservative soldiers celebrate a victory with whoops and cheers.

Photo #1. The execution scene cast poses for an after shoot photo.

#3. Faustina Bowen joins the cast in a walk back from the make-up station. Faustina enjoys trying on all the hats from various characters.

#4. Matt Bowen helps some of the cast fire blanks with his guns. We were happy to record some real gunfire closeups for the battle scenes.
