Valley of the Shadow Trivia #8: Civil War kitchens were primitive. We converted one of our goat sheds into the Gray family's kitchen. The first scenes we filmed in there were in August of 2012. It was 105 degrees outside. Inside the shed was even hotter and very stuffy! (Small room, seven people, hot lights, flies and mosquitoes...) By the end of the day we were all drenched in sweat and a bit cranky.

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #7: Part of the story requires a battle, but filming one ourselves was not feasible with our budget and resources. We could have gone to a reenactment to film, but we would have needed a signed release from every person in the shot, and modern and inaccurate things (and spectators!) would have gotten in the way. So, for our battle scene, we purchased some stock footage from a man in Virginia who stages battles to sell to filmmakers.

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #6: The scene of Ellie and the goats took four hours to film. It was Zoie's favorite scene to act in. The goats had fun too! (They got more than their usual portion of grain!)

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #5: Many of our props came from antique stores, ebay, or our grandparents' houses. Sometimes, God just provided them, like with the inkwell and pen that Chloe (Annalisa) is using in this picture. Mom was searching ebay for pens when she had the thought to call Grandma to see if she had a pen. Mom put off the thought and then had the thought again at lunch time. So she called Grandma. No pen. A few minutes later Grandma called back explaining that she was out of town eating lunch with an old classmate. She had told her classmate about the phone call, our movie project, and that we were looking for an old pen. Grandma's friend "happened" to own an 1880's inkwell and pen. She eagerly let us use it! We love God's timing and how He provides!

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #4: When making the film, we tried to take advantage of opportunities that arose. One such time was the broken window shot in the raid scene. One day Caleb had been sitting on the window sill, and when he stood up the glass cracked. Instead of replacing it right away, we filmed a soldier crashing it even further.

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #3: Zoie (as Ellie) was 6 years old for most of production. She grew so rapidly during the course of filming that we ran into problems. Her dresses that were originally mid-calf were soon at her knee-cap and her shoes got too small. One thing, however, remained the same. Her missing tooth. She lost it early on in the filming, and it didn't grow back in until nearly 9 months later!

Valley of the Shadow Trivia #2: If you were a young girl during the Victorian Era, you would not wear all black when going into mourning. Instead, you would wear a white dress with black trim. The time that you were required to stay in mourning varied from 3 weeks to 3 years, depending on your age and your relation to the deceased.
