Reactions to filming Stories of Us at Irving…
(10/30/07)
When Chris was in the room I didn’t really realize until you introduced him that it was him. I forgot over break that he was coming. I thought that he would be kinda strict, but he wasn’t at all. I was worried that if I was in the movie that I would forget my lines, but when he said that we play along as if it were really happening, I was glad to hear that. It was cool how he let us talk and he just sat down and took notes when someone gave him an idea. Some of the ideas I haven’t heard before.

Anticipation…
(11/01/07)
I’m not sure if I will be good at acting out something because I’m kind of quiet and shy. I want to be the person getting bullied because I don’t think I would be too good at trying to bully someone. It was easier that we split into groups to talk to him so that we all had more of a chance to talk.

Bullying  is…
mean
annoying
hurt
scared
annoyed

Auditions…
(11/06/07)
I’m kind of glad that I’m not a main character because I just want a small part. I still want to be in it at some part, but not a huge part. I think that I did kind of good in the auditions, but I know that I could of done better.   

Bullying experiences…
(11/16/07)
I remember…
When all of the block kids played hide and go seek and ganged up on this one girl.
When I wore a really baggy shirt and got called pregnant.
When me and my X played tag and ganged up on one of them.
When I saw this other kid yell at someone then shove him down.
When this kid would take my friends head back and would hide them.
When me and my friend locked her X out of the house.
When my twin Xs beat up another X.
When my X got mad at me, he threw me in our pool with all of my clothes on.
When my X shot air soft bbs at me when we were outside.
When one of my Xs shoved the other one in the dryer.

(12/03/07)
It gets kind of boring if you don’t go into the other room. I think that the filming is going to be kind of busy, but still fun. It doesn’t seem like we’ve been working on this very long.
