Shooting a movie!

Hello dear readers! I know I have become very slow in writing my blogposts but I don't seem to find ever enough time to write it any more! That does not mean that I am planning to stop blogging. I just simply write it whenever I can.
I would like to wish all my friends who celebrate Easter Sunday today to be a very happy one. Ours is next Sunday!
Today I will show you photos from the shootings of a film hubby and I took part in as subs.
It is the film Ouzeri Tsitsanis based on the book with the same title by Yorgos Skabardonis. The film is about the love story of a Jew girl with a Christian man during the World War II. It talks about the extermination of the Jews of Thessaloniki, my city,by Hitler and among all that is the life also of the Greek composer Vasilis Tsitsanis.
There are a lot of great actors and actresses in the film. Tsitsanis is played by hubby's Godson Andreas Konstadinou and the director is Manousos Manousakis.
When it was announced that sub actors are asked to volunteer for the film I sent an e-mail at once. Believe it or not mine was the first out of 10.000 e-mails and messages sent and the person responsible to choose the actors remembered the photos we sent him!Those photos with the map behind our backs!LOL!
Anyway we really wanted to take part in the film because it would be a great experience and so it was indeed! I took part two days (7 and 12 hours of shooting respectively) and hubby took part four days (two more 12-hour shootings).
Here are photos of the shootings.
In the Synagogue.
