We've been working on flowers for a real live major motion picture filming here in Toronto.
RED....(you heard it here first) starring Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Morgan Freeman and most importantly........the lovely, extremely talented Ms. Helen Mirren. I'm so excited. Mainly about Helen of course. And we have been hired to provide quite a few of the florals for certain scenes. We've already done a huge ballroom scene complete with a floral homage to the American flag. A beautiful flag by the way.
While I don't know the complete story, I understand it is a political spoof and Helen plays a former CIA big shot who has now retired and runs an exquisite B&B (I'm sure) in the country. Sooo, we will be putting together some very pretty floral arrangements for the lovely hotel run by the ever so chic Helen Mirren (don't know her character's name).
The spec is "very Martha Stewart". No problem. As well one of the scenes calls for Helen's character to be arranging flowers for guest's rooms and around the hotel and we'll be providing the flowers for her. We've been working with the set decorators and buyers and I have to tell you this has been a delightful project to work on.
And I've been told that Helen is a dream to work with. Talk about six degrees of separation. Yikes !!!
Sorry !!! Just wanted to share this with you.
