eastofkensington: presenting to you mary and michael darling
played by: astrid vineyard and brandon hender.
this is the first of a 1920s series of darling family photos as they are portrayed in the film.
to our patient and loyal followers and supporters,
i cannot express the amount of joy it brings me to officially announce that ‘east of kensington’ is complete.
done. finished. every stage of production has come to an end (i can’t believe i’m typing this).
no one has been more surprised with the amount of time it took to finish this movie than me. i always knew this movie was ambitious, but i never truly comprehended what it was going to take to bring this movie through to the finish line.
as eok’s director, i had the luxury of working with every department on this film… seeing first hand the incredible amount of talent and love each and every member of my team put into this project. making this movie was a gift and i feel so fortunate to have had the opportunity to see it through fruition. near the end of this journey my responsibility as a director became even clearer… it was my job to protect the overall quality of the film, even if it cost us way more time than any of us had anticipated. i’m so fortunate to have had such an understanding team (shout out to my producers and post team) to stand by me and work these extra months that were never on our timeline.
with that being said… it is my pleasure to share with you this screencap from the home underground set.
in the next couple months to come there will be much to share and many updates to look forward to. we will be scrapping the website many of you have become familiar with for a more updated and polished site. soon clips from the film will be released…our cast announced… special content and behind the scenes features shown.
we have been waiting a while to open the flood gates of content we have stashed for the right time… and i can’t believe i can finally say that the time is now.
thank you for being a part of journey and for all the faith, trust, and pixie dust.
goodbye’s are not forever.
“Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown up things again.”
