Blood of a King – Film Shoot at Dougherty Arts Center 9/1/10

Matt held a film shoot at the Dougherty Arts Center on the Odyssey set for the Oracle of Delphi scene.  Topher Bradfield arranged to deliver the Greek column set piece to the theater, and even found a great backup Oracle when the original actress was not able to make it.  An actor from The Odyssey Rock Musical played the Delphi Priest.
