Filming a commercial

It was an exciting day at Gidget's Garden. Our garden was the back drop for an upcoming commercial and since I'm not sure if I am supposed to tell you which company it was yet, I'll just leave it at that and promise to post a link to the finished product at a later date.
We geared up for the big day with some healthy oatmeal.
The crew took shots in the front, in the back and on the roof. They were here for a couple of hours but the commercial will only be about 20 seconds long so I am sure much of the footage from our garden will end up on the cutting room floor.

Gidget expected something better than camera equipment but was disappointed
The sun did not cooperate the way it should have so the scene wasn't as pretty as it could have been.

Setting up a scene that featured the avocado tree, I hope it makes it into the commercial
Once I have a copy of the finished product, I'll post it and announce the company. They were all great and Gidget and I enjoyed our day.
