|Violet, me and Hyacinth on the way to the Medieval|
Market back in the day! Sorry, I didn't have a digital
copy of this picture, so this is the best I could do :P
|The cast of No Longer Can I Stay... - see if you can spot Violet, Hyacinth,|
Lily and me! :D You might recognise a few others too, from other blog
posts (they are a LOT smaller there though!)

|A very little Daisy (me) as Ellie Huntley|
After that, things went more smoothly for a while. I finished editing the main part of the movie, added music, and worked out that the movie was a bit too cryptic to outsiders who hand't been involved (and to some who had been!) so I organised for Violet, Hyacinth, Lily and I to film some extra bits, to narrate the storyline.

It was looking really good - remembering that this started out as the pet project of ours when when weren't yet teenagers :D Actually, Violet may have been... But anyhow.... And just as I added the final credit, and was about to hit save on the movie, I saw a blinking on the screen, and the entire computer shut down :O. Turns out a virus had attached the computer and there was a high likelihood of us losing everything on it - including the movie, and all of the footage stored there. I was so upset!!
But, once again, the Lord was gracious. The next day at church, He sent a computer technician to come and talk to mum, and she asked him what he would recommend we do. Well, then ended up in the computer technician coming over for the afternoon, and spending around 4 hours removing the virus. And over the next week, he was able to save our movie!!! :D :D :D I am so, so, so glad!
I had wanted to premiere it mid-year last year, but I'm afraid our Christmas production "The Flavour of Christmas" got in the way :P So, tomorrow, on the 5th anniversary of its birth, we are holding the premiere for "No Longer Can I Stay..." (I have to say, it is the random-est title in the world, and I can't even remember where it came from haha). I am the only one who has seen our movie all the way through so far, and I look forward to sharing it with everyone tomorrow. I'm sure we will all laugh our heads off at our little kiddish acting, and the, um, numerous historical inaccuracies, but I know we will all having an amazing time too - all those great memories :D
I look forward to sharing some premiere photos with you all soon!!
