The Power's Back On!




That's right -- the Electric Company has called yet again to make good use of the patented PS22 Chorus electricity! As reported earlier on the blog after our first EC shoot, the classic PBS show from the 1970's is back into production, and the kids got another chance last week to shoot some video segments for the all-new Electric Company series that will be airing at some point in January, 2009. Here is a behind the scenes look at the shoot.





The chorus performed at Keansburg Amusement Park for this new shoot, so of course this doubled the fun of the experience! They even got a chance to go on a few rides before the rains came down with a vengeance! But I think we all agreed that the rides were only the icing on the cake. Working with the extremely talented actors and crew from Electric Company was definitely the highlight of the experience. The chorus even got to meet and work with some other extremely talented kids as well that day, and everyone left the experience feeling like a family. Below are some great pics that captured the fun of our two day shoot!



The meeting of the stars!
Actress/singer Selene with the 22 Crew!

Does hard work get any more fun than this?
Zaria thinks..... "maybe."Mrs. Donath and her little Evan even have a cameo!
Isaac & Justin are all smiles! Zarmeen is all aglow!
Everybody enjoying each other's company! (And yup, that IS Miss LiPuma! She's in the video too!)

Courtney taking a well-deserved break, but always time to be cool!!
Zarmeen wonders... can Andrew make the shot? Leslie shows that giraffe who's boss!
