Both Emma and Allison had the opportunity to get a taste of the actors world. We were casting for this Mormon Message, and while working with the producer on another project, she was looking at pictures of the two girls and she asked if Emma could cry on cue. I had never thought about it before, but I knew Emma was good at tears. One time she teared up because some dude on Wipeout purposed to his girlfriend on the show, or when Polly Pocket got sent to boarding school. So I went home, asked her if she could cry, and sure enough within minutes she had tears. So she and Allison got cast in the short film.
Emma said she was nervous at first, but it didn't take long after being introduced to craft services with all the twizzlers you can eat, and having someone do hair and make-up, that she told me she wanted to do it every day. Allie was a bit shy at first, but once she got comfortable with "fake mom" and "fake dad" she did great. That was also their names the rest of the shoot. Fake Mom and Fake Dad. I also had a lot of fun because I got to spend the whole day with my two girls.
