Tonight we showed the actors and their families what we have thus far of Outlaws of Ravenhurst.
In the scene from this afternoon, Sir Roger, Gordon, and Godfrey are on the home stretch. Inside the coach, Gordon is worn out from his long journey and is finding sweet repose in a nice long nap. Godfrey and Sir Roger seize this moment to be sure they are on the same page and to discuss the one point upon which they do not quite agree: Lady Margaret.
In the scene we shot today, Gordon meets Edwin, the only Catholic gate guard. After a short conversation with the soldier about his father, Gordon is disappointed to find that his mother has not returned home yet. Not only that, but will probably never be seen again before Gordon has grown up. Angry with his mother and Sir Roger, Gordon leaves into the woods to cry it out and gather his thoughts.
We are very fortunate to be able to film this scene at such a beautiful location: the Noz Castle.
Setting Up The Earl's Room. So exciting!!!
Children's Cinema Workshop coming up this weekend!
Scouting Shot Locations: Castle Noz! Oh Yeah. Score. Big time.
Scene 5 stars James Phillips as the fully evil Godfrey and Patrick Atwood as the only Gordon weakling, Sir Roger. These two characters begin to discuss their plans for Gordon’s future while he sleeps in the carriage on the way to Ravenhurst Castle. Godfrey has not yet convinced Sir Roger to lock Lady Margaret up in a dungeon before she meets Gordon, and intends to make this short time before they reach the Castle a final attempt at persuasion.
Scene 4 depicts John Abell (Frank Lawrence) as he hears sorrowful news brought to him by his wife, Mary Abell (Faustina Bowen). Gordon’s uncle, Sir Roger acted by Patrick Atwood, is at the farm and ready to take Gordon with him to Scotland. Sir Roger is ready to just grab Gordon and go, and does not even give him a moment to say good-bye to the people who he had always thought were his family. As Gordon is sad and cut deeply by this sudden separation, Sir Roger gives him a little lecture on the way an Earl behaves.
Scene 3 portrays Becket Bowen as Gordon enjoying the company of his “brother” Joel, played by Thomas Erskine. These two boys of ten go romping through the woods discussing their happy lives and twinship. This scene serves to set the stage of Gordon’s Maryland life as the son of John and Mary Abell. This scene is followed by the tragic uproar presented in scene 4.
Clan Gordon sails off the coast of Scotland forever. Stephen stands on the cliff edge and blesses Clan Gordon’s departure.
Thank you Mrs. Brehm for helping with the makeup!
