Premiere at Westfield!!!

So after walking the course that will be the red carpet at Westfield on Tuesday this week, I started to see just how huge the premiere for Chalet Girl is going to be.

Myself and the producers stood on the escalators looking down on the atrium where Rhianna has played for the christmas lights, Tron has premiered & Prince of Persia did my skin started to prickle with goosebumps and the excitement swelled in my belly. A week to the day we would be walking this course for real to watch 900 people enjoy the last year of our lives work.

As we walked into the Vue Extreme screens I looked across at Harriet and saw her eyes twinkle… it’s a wall to wall screen. The biggest screen I think any of us have ever seen… well ok bar the I-Max but come on that is still huge.

As we walked out of Westfield we were hit by the doors of the main entrance covered in Chalet Girl stickers which were all promoting the release of the film on the 16th March. With Flyers alerting the fans that the World premiere will be happening here on the evening of Tuesday the 8th February.

CHALET GIRL IS RELEASED IN CINEMAS ACROSS THE UK 18TH FEB 2011

So fantastic news! Chalet Girl is being released in the UK on the 18th of Feburary 2011. I literally can not contain my excitment. The press release has gone out and the start of the run up to the film has begun.

PRESS RELEASE!!!

This February, strap on your board and take to the slopes with CHALET GIRL. An ice cool comedy filled with laughter, romance and kick-ass snowboarding!

Feisty 19 year old Kim Matthews (Felicity Jones) takes on the challenge of her life when she lands a job as a chalet girl in a glitzy ski resort in the Alps.

Assigned to live and work in the luxury chalet of successful businessman Richard Masden (Bill Nighy), she spends her days cooking, cleaning and catering for his family. Propelled into a world of wealth, fun and endless parties, Kim is utterly baffled by this new way of life. Finding it hard to grasp all the rules and be accepted by her uber-posh co-worker Georgie (Tamsin Egerton) she quickly finds herself way out of her depth.

To make matters worse, she finds herself falling for her boss’s son Jonny (Ed Westwick.) Gorgeous, charming and talented there’s just two problems –Jonny’s ice-princess girlfriend Chloe (Sophia Bush) and his scheming mother (Brooke Shields.)

With few friends to turn to Kim takes to the slopes where she discovers the thrills of snow-boarding and a natural talent.  Filled with a new found confidence she enters the resort’s biggest Pro-boarding event of the year.

As the competition draws nearer and Jonny and Kim grow closer it looks like her luck is finally changing. But Jonny’s family have other plans for his future and they could turn Kim’s world upside down.

Packed with breathtaking snowboarding action and stunning locations, CHALET GIRL is a hilarious and touching story about finding a talent, staying true to yourself and achieving your dreams.

The stellar international cast includes Felicity Jones (Cemetery Junction), Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl), Bill Nighy (Love Actually), Brooke Shields (Blue Lagoon), Tamsin Egerton (St. Trinians), Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill) and Bill Bailey (Black Books.)

CHALET GIRL is directed by Phil Traill from an original screenplay by Tom Williams and produced by Pippa Cross and Harriet Rees.

Music | Soundtrack | Fun Energetic original….

Spent the whole day listening to every song spotify will let us play, youtube will let us watch and myspace will buffer fast enough to give any of these new young artists a chance at getting there tunes in there.

We got to the stage where we decided that our cast had their fingers on the music pulse and that we would ask them all to send us their top ten tunes that they have been rocking out to recently…

Bill Nighy used to be in a band back in the day and was pulling out all sorts of amazing suggestions in Germany of some absolute classics so am very excited see what treasures he pulls out the bag.

Georgia King is most definitely going to come up with something pretty cool as she is friends with some of the most talented bread muso’s out there.

We also know that the beautiful Ed Westwick is a fan of

THE BLACK KEYShttp://www.myspace.com/theblackkeys   |   I’LL BE YOUR MAN

Will hit you back with some emailed responses from Brooke shields, Nighy and Felicity when they respond!

Three amazing days | Mountains | Bertie’s interior

I wrote this yesterday but had no internet at the top of the Zugspitze!!!!

Thursday 22nd April | 16.05

Writing from on top of a mountain at 3000 metres. The last three days have been utterly incredible and most beautiful of my time out in Garmicsh… The Zugspitze an unpredictable and yet striking when sunny, has delivered us both a great day today and a stormy day on Tuesday where the whole crew and cast were evacuated from the mountain. Driving around on a skidoo with Felicity in a white out was hilarious the very cool boarder drove at high speed at the horror to the 1st AD and DOP who found this all rather dangerous… I suppose it was – but so much fun!

We had to wait an hour for the train in the restaurant at the top so we ball had a wrap beer and took the party train back down the mountain.

Wednesday was a big day for me personally. Phil was extremely sweet and asked if I would be the bar lady in the Bertie’s interior scene. So I got taken in to costume were I was placed in a biker jacket given silver hoops and an orange bikini top to wear under a strappy black top so that I had a little colour. Hehe I thought I looked pretty funny! But the cast were really proud and supportive. Thinking I was only to be in the background I was surprised when I was taken to make up as I had been asked to do Kim’s beats at the bar when she is ordering funny drinks… it was close up!!! Oh shit – now don’t over act kitty – keep it cool!

Still by Danny Burrows – Berties Bar | I am the Barmaid! yay!!!

I did and believe I was ok ! So funny being in scenes when you know the cast and crew so well. You just have to stay so professional and just take a leap of faith and go for it… as for me, if it makes the cut – I had achieved some short beats, a few mere seconds with a fantastic actress – miss felicity Jones!

Tom Williams | Writer   –   Phil Traill | Director

Was brilliant how many of us have had a go at being in the film even Phil and Tom got to be extras in Bertie’s Bar which had been named after Tom’s lovely wife gave birth mid-shoot. We are going to give him the sign as a present for sure!

After the day of filming in a hot – super sweaty underground bar with all the 100’s of extras… myself, Tamsin and the wonderful Georgia King! OMG – yes she came back after what was a month away in the UK shooting another film. Georgia is one of those girls who is just the life and soul she is so funny, kind and giving as a person and lights up a room when she walks in. I literally leaped out of the car when we pulled up to set on the Wednesday morning and bounded over to my fabulous friend! No shock there – I am always far too over dramatic and many of the crew laughed as they ate their breakfast.

Sharing the stories of the last four weeks and what tam, felicity and I had been up to Georgia was keen to make up with lost time and got stuck in. It was just so cool to have the girls all back together again on set!

This morning was another terribly early start with 5am my alarm startling me from my sleep, whilst getting dressed blind in the dark I through on anything and throw everything into my bag for the day’s excitement. I bloody love going up the mountain… there is a difference in the feeling with the crew and cast, especially when it is as beautiful and crisp as it has been today. With 50 sunblock on, I still have managed to burn my nose.

Harriet Rees | Producer –      Kitty | ME! (with our extreme white lip balm)

There was a moment on the T-bar today when I was playing the YEAH YEAH YEAHs in my ears looking up at the skyline and taking in the view….

I made a promise to never forget these moment and the amazing memories I have made whilst being on location for the last 2 months.  Its one of those things that when you miss you family, friends – boyfriend…. You sometimes want to jump on the first plane home for a hug after a long week – but when you look around and realise that today you get to ski to the office! hehe and be surrounded by the beautiful mountains you really do  remember just how lucky you are. And today had me one of those moments where you stop and think, and know you will savor that moments as secret unexplainable treasures, forever.

Today on set has been an added bundle of  extra human activity with the beloved Tom Williams, our amazing writer who has just been getting totally stuck in – he adds so much value on set and is someone who I defo wanna hang out with in London. Phil and him are kindred spirits and great fun to be around… the Irish pub later will be a blast!

Tom Williams | Writer – On set as an extra.

I have also been getting to know the Roxy riders and their team photographer Matt george – www.mattgeorge.com – he is very cute and like all the riders far too cool.

There was our new super trendy and “street” Stills guys Mr. Danny Burrows who works with OnBOARD magazine – http://www.onboard.mpora.com

Matt George | Danny Burrows

I have fallen in love with his work as some of his pictures will be the perfect snaps for Freuds our PR company in London who has been dying to make a choice on the first released… watch this space for some hot looking Ed and Felicity shots…

Speaking of Press, there was a press call on the Tuesday will a lot of the german press, here is a cheeky peek at one of the group pics but don’t tell anyone… ok!

Disco Bowling | Peaches

After a four-day week we were all ready to let our hair down last friday and enjoy the half way up the mountain party or rather the “burgfest” as the Germans would call it. It is German tradition to have a party exactly half way, to celebrate reaching the top of the mountain before having to get back down… which of course  is always faster and quicker.

Ed |DOP                                  Phil | Director                         Joe | First A D

Seeing as I had been placed as party planner of the film I went about making some key decisions on where I should possibly take 70 crew and cast for a few drinks and a good time.  The answer was obvious.

D I S C O   B O W L I N G !!!!

The first night I arrived in Garmisch, Tamsin, Ed and I decided that we should go exploring to begin our German adventure.  With options such as Billy’s table dancing club, Peaches nightclub or Bowling I figured we should probably hit the lanes…?! We   had the most incredible time even if it felt as if we had pull a “Good night sweetheart” and walked through the doors to enter Garmisch circa 1950. It was honestly the most fun and due to our tales of glow in the dark balls, beers bigger then you can drink and chicken wings… there had been a general buzz on set about going back there with a much bigger group.

Friday swung round really quick and after wrap I wondered down to pitch up at the bar and await the arrival of everyone. By 9pm we had a buzzing crowd of happy crew drinking and dancing whilst launching balls down the lanes to try and achieve, Strike. The cast had arrived slightly later due to a well-deserved dinner and therefore almost missed the bowling, luckily caught the last half hour and I have to say Brooke and Ed were on fire…

Keen to move the party on into the night we decided to dig a little deeper into the social scene of Garmisch-Parkenkiren… if you have ever been or know of this back-ward bariavan place you will realise just how funny this is! What social scene… ahaha… well when there is a will there is a…. (way) Peaches night club….

Erica, felicitys stand in, a local girl who is in fact American (her father works on the army base) seemed to know what, if anything, this tiny town had to offer to the likes of Brooke, Bill, Ed, Nick, Sophia, Tamsin and the lovely Felicity…

Peaches was a place that actually was pretty awesome. I think Braun said – “have we just walked into tropical Germany?” With us all feeling pretty excited about this new venue, in true Chalet Girl style we dominated the room and created our own dancefloor within seconds…  the tallest man on set, Nicholas Braun stalked his was to a small opening between the two bars, throw a few shapes and within seconds the place was pumping even the DJ started to crack out some serious tunes…. Thinking this was it, we stayed in the first area until the discovery was made that for a mere 5 Euros we could get into Peaches Night club. Perfect. We all piled down stairs to the den of blue and purple lighting and dripping plastic chandeliers – this special decore was just what we needed… With our producer, Director and 1st AD the first to hit the dance floor we are got invovled in a huge dance off to the sounds of Euro Electro – something that germany is extremely keen on…

Not wanting to stay up till three am listening to trance the boys decided to ask the owner to bring down the Hip hop DJ an hour earlier to get the place really pumping! After a but of negotiation we were breakin gangster moves to Dre and Jay Z…

Graham & Pippa | Producer        Lazslo Kitty Sam | Crew   Ed & Nick | Cast

This half way party is something that I do happen to feel that the Germans have got right. As the bonds you make after an event out like this are ones that tend to mould you together more closely.

On set on Monday there was a lot of talking and sharing of stories… one of which entailed Nancy in Costume losing her keys… very funny but I can say that she has a new pair now and is able to get back into her appartment. Poor thing.
