Attached are photos from our Illinois Caverns filming on June 11 and scouting Mushroom Cave and Paul-Petroske Cave the next day. We had a very good time both days.
We’re reviewing our footage from Illinois Caverns now. We captured it in just the right amount of time. And the next day Michael Carter showed us how we could film all our scenes in Mushroom Cave at Meramec State Park, with the exit scene filmed outside Paul-Petroske Cave. This was very helpful because we can focus on quality instead of speed when we return in two weeks.
