Filming Filming FILMING!!!!

So things have been a whirlwind. Filming started  and it has been an entirely new world. You all see I havent posted lol

So it has been released that my son Myles Malik Truitt will be portraying Young Ronnie Devoe in the New Edition BET Mini-Series.

He will be joined by Jahi Winston as young Ralph Tresvant, Dante Hoagland as young Mike Bivins, Tyler Williams as young Bobby Brown and Caleb Mclaughlin as young Ricky Bell.

These boys have been like brothers since they first “kicked it” together in bootcamp. We have had lots of fun from bowling to the movies. They play hard and they work harder! #NewEditionBET #YoungNE

So….To start, the director Christopher Robinson, yes THE Christopher Robinson is the director…….

Chris called for prayer the first day and this touched me. All things should start with prayer. To see the cast, crew and the actual people they are portraying praying was a confirmation that God is in control. It was exciting to see so many moving pieces that are important to get this one project going. All of the headphones, walkie-talkies, wires, cameras, medics, people with tags, people without tags, people yelling “cut” and everyone in immediate silence. It is a MAJOR PRODUCTION. OMG this is really happening. I had to learn to stay put and keep my eyes open. I have learned that THESE PEOPLE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING lol So then we got a schedule and I was like huh…I didn’t know what any of the codes meant and I felt  so overwhelmed….so what did I do, I called someone and I asked.

Why not ask. If you don’t ask, you don’t know.

SW-Start Work

H-Hold

W-Work

WF-Work Finished

This may not be for every schedule, but it was relieving to get the information I needed. Bottom line. Do not feel like you cant ask. I even used the wonderful Google. It at least gave me an idea. We have been blessed to have some awesome parents on set with us who are helpful and very cool. I’ve been told that this is not always the case. I am sure there are some not so nice moms out there….I have encountered some not so nice stuff….but shake em off!

Where was I….?  I told you all in the previous post that moms are near, but we are not the talent.  We definitely made our space our own and had fun doing it…just check out my facebook page “Danielle RWOA Jackson” (there is a post about this silly mommy below lol 🙂 )

The producers and staff on this project have been awesome though. They are making sure that we are ok and keep us up to date on all activities.

Having BET as Myles first project has been an amazing experience. The people on set have been nice.

The funny thing is the person that I was laughing and talking with from the beginning of this production turned out to be none only than the founder, President and CEO of Jesse Collins Entertainment….JESSE COLLINS. (Glad I wasn’t being weird..maybe I was…more than likely lol but anyway) He is so very down to earth, funny and very easy to talk to….evidently. I was talking with him and he laughed when I told him who he was lol  🙂 He told us the best places to take the kids and assured us that if we needed anything, he would help. He is a real cool guy!
