On the set of "The Next Step"
I had the wonderful opportunity of hanging out on the set of the new show "The Next Step" with director Mitch Ness & showrunner Frank Van Keekan. The show is a scripted kids series following a dance troupe and it is shot like a reality show. I was shocked to hear that the whole cast was made up of non-actors who were cast because of their dancing ability. They gave amazing performances and were incredible to watch.
I was lucky enough to be there for a lot of the outdoor shoots and we had amazing weather :) What more could I ask for..
I was offered a story editing postion on the show shortly after. It was a wonderful experience and really showed me how a unique show like this comes together.
"The Next Step" is produced by Temple Street Productions and will be premiering on Family Channel in March 2013.
