Day Eighteen - The Lost Day
A day that was originally scheduled. Then lost, into the schedule of Day Sixteen. Then brought back, sprinkled onto a portion of our weekend. Well worth it. A lovely, relatively relaxed half-day of shooting. Meal donation from Mi Pueblo. Watching a bunch of boys play Ninja. An ideal summer afternoon.

Day Thirteen - The Freaks Come Out At Night
As any production progresses, personalities & antics tend to favor the strange side of the street. I’m convinced that the flux in schedule, especially that of overnights, rapidly increases & inflates this phenomenon. Beyond this, the crisp night air pushes toward a closer crew, which I am a huge advocate of. Our cultures stigma against intimacy & affection, adoration of our...
The Sex That Inspires
Him: sounds so scandalous no wonder this artists culture has such a reputation for debachery.
Me: Where do you think all the good inspiration comes from?
Him: regrettable sex? makes sense.
Me: I don't know if I'd call it regrettable (not all the time, anyway). Impulsive, perhaps.
Him: I'm sure it's a mixed bah bag
Me: Lustful, definitely.
Him: bodice ripping
Him: depending on if it's a period piece.

Day Ten - Hand Jive
I can’t be sorry that my overwhelming sense of empathy causes me to be as concerned for the physical & emotional safety of other females as it does. I refuse to apologize for being cautious in certain areas as a result of the things I’ve experienced. There isn’t a single person in this universe that knows the whole story, in that regard we’re all damaged goods. My...

Day Eight - Always Pacing
Since we had less shots scheduled, we were able to dedicate more time to some scenes that really deserved it. It’s nice to know that we CAN do more than 20 setups in a day, if needed. But it’s nicer not to have to. To allow the talent some time to exhibit superior performances. To finish early, allowing most of the crew enough time for sleep & personal items. Despite all the...

Day Seven - Donations
Yesterday was a cluster-cuss of good news & restless children. All in all, we ended Week One on a very high note, in my opinion. Thanks to the kindness of a handful of supporters of the production, we finally had the food situation taken care of. The NK phrase many of us have heard time & time again was ultimately proven, “Craft Service is the most important team on any...

Day Six - Always Stressing
Something’s gotta give. I generally try to be one of the most optimistic ones around. If I’m not, many others won’t be. But something has to change. At the rate we’re going, we won’t last another week. The blatant disregard of human empathy disgusts me.
Day Five - Company Move
There isn’t much I loathe more as an AD than company moves. It’s like having two call times, two starts to the day. And the starts are the slowest part. Getting base camp established takes time. And energy. And planning. And not a small amount on any of those accounts. Murphy’s Law seems to be in full effect. Raptor is right, someone must have uttered...
