Filmmakers were set up once again at picturesque Wynn’s Pond in Coweta County Tuesday shooting scenes for an upcoming release: the first music video from “American Idol” season seven runner-up David Archuleta.

On site all day for the shoot were Blackdog Films production crew members, the young video cast — some plucked from talent and modeling agencies in neighboring counties — excited mothers and, of course, Archuleta himself.

The group was also excited about a crew coming from “Entertainment Tonight” to tape a segment Tuesday for the entertainment news show.

Archuleta, the 17-year-old pop/soul/R & B singer from Murray, Utah — whose debut single, “Crush,” was made available on iTunes Aug. 12 — was on location at Wynn’s Pond to film the video about a group of friends getting together at a lake house before going off to school, according to casting director Kay Clark. Among the video cast members selected by Clark at the filming site Tuesday were Abbey Jayne Moody, 16, from Huntsville, Ala.; Garret Pennington, 19, from Fayetteville; Tyler Parks, 19, from Atlanta; Christine Ko, 20, from Atlanta; and Tricia Carrabba, 21, from NJ.

Archuleta was already in Georgia for his performance in the “American Idols Tour” Monday night at the Gwinnett Center.

In a blog posted Sunday on Archuleta’s MySpace Music site, he wrote: “We’ll also be shooting the music video for ‘Crush!’ Which I’m nervous but excited about.”

In May 2008, David Archuleta became the runner-up on the seventh season of “American Idol,” receiving 44 percent of more than 97 million votes. He then signed a recording contract with Jive Records in June, according to postings on Wikipedia. It is rumored an album is scheduled for release in late 2008, following the “American Idols Tour.” On Aug. 4, Archuleta was a presenter with “American Idol” winner David Cook at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards, where he won the Teen Choice surfboard for “Most Fanatic Fans.”

Also featured in the movie “Sweet Home Alabama” — a comedy/romance released in 2002 starring Reese Witherspoon — scenic Wynn’s Pond is located off Fischer Road in eastern Coweta County near Peachtree City.

Here is a very funny video showing David inteacting with his fans and his family standing near by. At the End you see David as any little brother would act with older sister, when Claudia says ” David, take a bite of this cookie.” “I want to sell it on EBAY”. So funny!
