Lights, camera... sheep?
The Ontario Visual Heritage Project was back at Westfield again this weekend, continuing work on their War of 1812 film. The Lockhart Farmstead became the setting for the story of a family whose farm was one of the many ordered to be pillaged and burned during the war. Thankfully, our lovely log cabin was spared!
In addition to several talented and authentically dressed actors, and 1812 re-enactors representing American troops, a number of Westfield's regular four-footed and feathered volunteers were on hand for the filming. The good nature of the lambs and chicks was appreciated by all, as they patiently submitted to being stolen over and over during several takes. We think they enjoyed all the attention.
