They’re done filming!!!!  After 266 days of filming on location, “it’s a wrap“! 

Now the fun begins for Jackson and Company…piecing all that film together, putting Mr. Shore’s music in, adding all the computer generated gizmos, doing voice overs…lots and lots to accomplish before December 14.  How many days away, you might ask? 

161 days and 14 hours, more or less!

 (thank you Elaine for the countdown!)

Have I told you lately how excited I am for this movie to be released?  And me see it?  And then see it again?  Yeah, I know you think I’m nuts…just play along with me just this once?
