Came in as a hired gun on “Zathura” today..
I had to sign an NDA (non-disclosure agreement), but what I can tell you is that shoot’s a godawful cluster fuck.. three stages, four crews (all shooting at the same time), and principal photography has to be finished in two weeks. It’s hillarious, actually. First and second unit are on the same stage, and they have to take turns rolling sound. It’s impossible to sneak in any work or a conversation, but it’s worth it to watch the A.D.’s go batty trying to co-ordinate.
The film industry in LA is really busy, which is unusual for December.. it’s normally dead around the holidays, but it’s beyond crazy now – whomever scheduled all this, I’d just like to say…..
Thanks. I need the dough.
Also ran into a guy that I used to, well.. not date.. we had a thing for each other, hung out some, slept together a few times, but he was so hostile and angry that I couldn’t deal and bailed (he was doing way, way too much blow).
I tried, I really did, but I just couldn’t deal with the crap he was flipping at me (this was several years ago), so I did what was best for me, walked, and that was that..
Anyways, he looks good, he’s off blow and booze, and has a serious girlfriend. There’s a part of me that’s really happy for him, and a part of me that just wants to cry. I still have feelings for him.
After we wrapped, I went over to a porno shoot house in Bel Air (yes!) and shot some video of The Blonde doing makeup on a not porn shoot.
I got two hours of sleep last night, and I have to be on location in Long Beach tomorrow at 7 am, so I’m off to bed.
