I am a big fan of the Hunger Games books and am excited for the film from Lionsgate. This was done in hopes that the actors would get a chance to audition for the film. Danielle Chuchran was able to audition for Gary Ross. Congratulations to Jennifer Lawrence and Amandla Stenberg on landing the roles.
I know that Rue is described as being dark skinned in the book, but I wanted to show Savanna's acting. I think she would make a good Prim though.
The song at the beginning is Wretches and Kings by Linkin Park.
The song at the end is Iridescent by Linkin Park.
I didn't put the sound of the cannon when Rue died because I cut out all background sounds and sound effects at that point and was just playing music only.
