Madison Davenport as Caroline - THE ATTIC DOOR
Hi, my name is Madison Davenport, I am 11 years old, in 6th grade and I play Caroline in the movie! It was ssssoooo fun working on the set of THE ATTIC DOOR. Everyone was so nice and I made a lot of really great friends! We filmed the movie in Utah (I still have the red dirt on my shoes to prove it). When you see the movie than you can definitely tell that all the locations we shot were gorgeous!

The movie itself is beautiful too. I got to work with Jake Johnson who played Darrel, we go to school together! I also got to work with the most awesome directer ever (not even exagerating) Danny Daneau. My whole experiance was amazing and I loved watching the movie. Oh wait I’m getting ahead of myself! My character Caroline is very motherly and is very strict yet loving at the same time. During the movie she is always hoping and knowing that her parents will come back. Now Darrel on the other hand is very childlike and playful yet he seems to want to care for his sister.

Danny is an amazing director, he lets you put a little bit of youreself into your character. I had so much fun. Thank you soo much Danny and thank you to everyone who helped put this project together!

LOVE,
Madison Davenport

Looking Back: Jake Johnson, Actor

Our lead actor, Jake Johnson, posted the following blog entry September 27th, 2007 describing his experiences on the set of, THE ATTIC DOOR. Read the original entry here.

Jake Johnson
Actor

Hello, my name is Jake Johnson and I am the actor who plays Darrell in the film THE ATTIC DOOR. I am 10 years old and in the 5th grade. My Dad, Mom, brother Zach and sister Caryn all traveled to Kanab while I had this great opportunity to shoot this film. Playing the part of Darrell was the most fun, yet most challenging job, I have ever done. For starters I had to wear clothes from the 1800′s which was a little awkward at first but became quit comfortable as the shoot went on. On many days my wardrobe had to be clean for the morning scenes and dirty for the afternoon scenes, which meant rolling around in the dirt and playing with the local chickens to dirty myself up. The wackiest part of the movie was when the light in the wagon we were shooting in burned out and everyone thought it would blow. I remember Cory, the first AD came running in with a fire extinguisher only to find a completely protected burnt out light. Afterwards when we looked at the tape we cracked up at the panic on everyone’s face.

Danny was an awesome director! He taught me how to break down each scene in a way I have never done before. He made me laugh, cry and yes even barf one day on the set (not really his fault, I had the flu!)

Madison and I actually go to the same school here in Southern California. Our families are great friends and we talk about our experience in Utah all the time. We had a great crew that I will never forget and would love to work with again!

The Screening in Kanab part 1

Erica Harrell
Producer

Wow! Going back to Kanab and being able to enjoy the town and the parks that surround it was a completely different experience than shooting a film there last year.

The trip up for me was filled with excitement and a strange sense of calm. I was very excited that my dad was able to fly in from Florida to see the film as well as Danny’s and Bryce’s parents. I thank everyone who was able to make the journey to see something we all have been working so hard on for so long. In addition to my father I was also able to bring my beau Jeremiah who had never been to the West and he of course fell in love with the stunning red rocks of the region. Jeremiah had not seen any of the film prior to seeing it on the big screen in Kanab and I was really excited to share our work with him and the community of Kanab.

Walking through the streets of Kanab and seeing some of our old friends like Courtney and Cathy from the Parry Lodge and Jackie Hamblin-Rife was such a wonderful reminder of the hospitality that we received while making this film. (Of course eating at the Rewind Diner and the Rocking V Cafe were also exciting treats.)

Right now I am finishing up my last days on Entourage and I am headed back to Florida next week. Part two of this blog will feature pictures as soon as I find my camera and unpack!
