The Journal was filmed entirely in and around the historic suburb of Summit, New Jersey. The outdoor scenes were shot at Reeve's Reed Arboretum a historic garden in Summit. Joyce Zemsky the event manager for the Arboretum gave The Journal cast and crew complete access to the entire property as well as the Wisner House. The interior scenes were filmed at the property of Christine Cartisser who also helped us put together our website.
The film was shot in 3 days with each lasting longer than 12 hours.The Journal became a massive undertaking in Post-Production with the process being handled by the director as well as a number of consultants and lasted almost 1 year.
