|Our Queenslander backyard with cubby house and sandpit. |
Captain Boyter made our sandpit cover
Could this backyard be in a TV commercial?
Yesterday, I received a telephone call from Nat Duncan at Queensland Film Locations who said our place was one of several shortlisted for a half-day shoot for a pizza ad.
If the house is selected, the backyard will be used to film a cricket game mid next week. Wouldn't it be great?
So, I raked the leaves, swept under the deck and picked up all the kid's toys. Everything looked very respectable (Note to self: I should do that more often).
I even watered the lawn and threw down some lawn food for extra measure after seeing Make mine Mid-Century's lawn (Note to self: I only have to feed the lawn every three months).
The ad producer and photographer visited us this morning, just to frame up the shots, but they didn't stay long so maybe that means it's a no go. Boo hoo!
I've probably jinxed it again by mentioning it on the blog, like I did with the last TV ad...I do hope we get it...it would be heaps of fun and the extra dollars would be handy too.
