The interview with Steve went very well, we were able to get a lot of information about ship building and about the Wedding Cake House’s origins. We were also able to get some new b-roll of the artifacts they have on the second floor of the museum.
This Saturday, we resumed filming in Kennebunk. We interviewed Steve Spoffard, President of the Board of Trustees for the Brick Store Museum and local historian. Steve is well-versed in the history of ship building in the Kennebunks and tied in the industry with the history of the Bourne family.
Great week for the Wedding Cake House, we were mentioned in both the Portland Press Herald’s Go section and in the SMCC Beacon.

We will hopefully be setting up a Kickstarter Campaign, along with completed poster artwork.
Production will return on March 9th where we will film our first interview.
We’re pleased to announce our second cast member: Dick Ray. He has been cast as Andrew Walker, a local man who chronicled his first-hand experience with the Wedding Cake House barn fire.
Our first day of shooting was successfully completed last week. Thanks to the wonderful people of the Brick Store Museum, we were able to get excellent b-roll. This included a map from 1856, large book drawings of the Kennebunk area during it’s ship building boom and of many different postcards and photos of the Wedding Cake House from different eras. Overall it was a great week! We will have more production days in March, moving us closer to making our film a reality.
We lot looked through a lot of great auditions and we were able to find some great talented actors. We’re pleased to announce our first cast member, Scott Marcoux… stay tuned for more casting updates next week We’re also excited to welcome our resource partners: the staff of the Brick Store Museum in Kennebunk. Utilizing their archival resources (photos, news clippings, drawings, portraits, family artifacts, etc.) we’ll be bringing the visual story, the true story, of the house to light”
The casting call went really well yesterday. We had a lot of people come in read for the narrator. We also had people read for George Bourne, we decided to cut Lizzie’s part and make George’s part a voice over instead. We have a lot of auditions to look over to make a final decision on who will narrate. After that we can really being production!
Due to the weather and power outages at school our casting and class was postponed until next week, but that’s okay we’re still excited though to see who will come and try out for the film!
