Day 32 of 40 Day United States of Autism Movie Shoot
Our crew had an amazing time today in Philadelphia with the Neibauer Family and our trip to Sesame Place. We met David, Holly, Robyn, Kathryn, and Diana at Sesame Place first thing in the morning along with a news crew from NBC 10. The parade was fantastic and the family and crew were able to have a private meeting with some of the characters, including Cookie Monster, Elmo, and Bert and Ernie. Even though it was 110 degrees with the heat index, everyone had a blast and the people will be blown away by what happens at Sesame Place in the final film. What struck us the most was the way the Neibauer family were so at home in the amusement park, a rarity for families with such chaos going on.
We then left to the Neibauer’s house and spent time with an amazing and loving family. The interviews were fantastic, and the heart of the family really came through. It’s obvious to anyone who seems them interact that through all the ups and the downs, there is a lot of love in that relationship. We were excited to capture it on film, and for you to see it soon.
Tomorrow, we head to New Jersey for our last day of filming before our 3rd day off during the last month. Be sure to come back tomorrow and check out more pictures. We love you all, and can’t wait to hear from you soon!
