Yesterday, Kurt and I went out to find a toy tow truck to use in a scene he had in mind. Last night, Kurt researched tow trucks and photos of cars being rescued out of the ice to make the scene more authentic.
This afternoon, Kurt and I set out to the pond we scouted the day before. The first big job was to chisel through 4 inches thick of ice to get to the water. Kurt used a screw driver for the job which took him about 25 minutes.
Kurt carefully composed the scene that he had in mind. For the next 45 minutes, he went through several scenarios, repositioning the characters and vehicles.
