Get Me A Cold One!

The wall of records was amazing; my Art Dept. friend had to lug boxes of these into the cool penthouse apartment.  One of the bars was a secret speakeasy, just a black door with a lions head in downtown L.A.  No sign or advertisements, I think it's invite only.

Flashback to now?

I don't know why they call this a flashback, I thought it was set in modern time.  I couldn't believe how hard it was to find butcher paper without any print on it.  I went to like 3 grocery stores and 2 craft stores, finally props had to make their own with some paper and parchment I found.  There was also a request for a black cutting board; I literally ran to BBB and made it back in literally 15 minutes!  As soon as I got back they said, "nevermind".  Oh well, that's how fast things change in this business.

The Power Inside

So this was a ten day shoot which is surprising because it's a webisode.  But getting with the times means embracing new formats.  Working with two directors was also kinda strange.  The first clip was in the Hollywood hills and wrapped at 4am; at that hour I did not find this very amusing.  Now I am seeing the humor and looking forward to the next series.  I also couldn't believe this coffee shop wanted $22 for a pound of coffee.  The free iced coffee at the end of the day was amazing though. 



In the second clip the party was held in 1920s apartment on the 9th floor, a building with only one manually operated service elevator.   PAs had to rock the bus since it never left the street and the lighting guys did a great job showing "oncoming cars" and blackouts.



In the third clip the basement was so dark and creepy it must have been a dungeon at some point.  I only went down there when I had too.  Beware the mustache!  Check out the The Power Inside to see which side you are on.


Rachel is so talented.

Stand in "Hair"

I was on set for this commercial when the Director called out for a lighting stand-in.  I ran over and quickly took my hair down and looked into the mirror.  He yelled "Beautiful!  Look how the light is in her hair."  I must have blushed because I was so surprised at his compliment.  Not bad for a quick brush to my hair and ponytail at 5:30 am.

Backlots vs Locations

It is definitely easier to shoot cars on a backlot versus on location if only for crowd control. With all the reflections and bogies it can turn ugly quick. Never mind all the crazy people that come out to complain about how the film crew took their whole neighborhood over. I can deal with the Studio Tours coming through every 5 minutes but the general public on locations are always a challenge. This is where my customer service skills come in and having a smile for everyone I meet:)
