Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

Day 6

We’ve been in the same location for five days now, which has been nice, but tonight was the night we had to wrap out. Since we’re not carrying a rigging crew, that means after they called wrap, we worked for two hours after everyone else went home. We had to load our truck, and pull up all the cable we laid down on Tuesday of last week.

The rest of the movie’s going to be like this. I don’t think we’ll be in the same place for more than three days again.

We’re also going to be on ‘splits’ (a late morning call or near noontime call as there’s both day and night work) for the rest of the week. I don’t mind splits – I can still do things like go to the bank in the morning.

Right now I’m tired, and I have to be back at work in nine hours.

Call time: 9:00 am
Wrap time: 9:30 pm
We finished at 11:00 pm
