Totally Unauthorized

A side of the film industry most people never see.

I’m tired today.

We worked about 14 hours (6 am to 8:30 pm) yesterday – we scrambled to finish rigging a set which had the shoot date moved up three days, and then, at the end of the day when it would have been time to go home, we had a bunch of changes to make (stuff that the gaffer took a look at when first unit got in and and wanted done differently – this happens all the time because the lighting always looks a bit different on the actual set than it did in the drawings)  which took a few hours – first unit were shooting some stuff outside (which we’d rigged, and then were told to move at the last minute so it barely got done in time) while we tweaked, and we just managed to get out of there before they moved inside.

Then, this morning I had to get up early because the glazier came to replace the living room window that got broken last week – probably when some damn kid threw something at it, but I can’t prove that.

I have a date tonight, but I’m not certain that I’m not going to sleep through it.

    Have fun tonight . When was your last date?

    I know it it hard to date anyone who is not “sensitve to the business”

    At least, have a compassion for your situation. ” Living the Dream ” that is- show business . Be it Film , Live Theatre Or corporate shows. The hours are hard to explain to the 9 to 5
    people. Some think it’s sooo glamorous to work in theatre,or on a film, or T.V. show. Well, I have to say. ” Yes” sometimes it is . You do get to meet really neat and talented people. Who just happen to be famous.
    But, for the most part. It is really hard work. Satisfying, but hard.
    So, have a great time. I hope he is good enough for you.
    You have fun.you deserve it.
