Pictures of You – Day 1 blog
Wed, 3 Jan 2007
Shooting began at 7 this morning. I was a few minutes late to set because I spent the whole night before watching the series Heroes. Comes out to NZ soon, definitely worth a watch, although I dunno how endurable it would be to watch only on a weekly basis. After saying to myself I’ll just watch the first episode and go to bed, I ended up watching six episodes back to back and only got a couple of hours sleep because of it. Worth it? I’ll let you know after I finish the last five episodes tonight.
But as for the shoot… it went surprisingly well for a production’s first day. Very few hiccups, almost all scenes bar one went by incredibly smoothly and fast and everyone is just so enthusiastic about the project it’s a nice enviroment to be around. And it better stay that way… we’ve got about 4-5 more hard pressed weeks to work together and the last time I spent that much time together with a whole bunch of people working our arses off… we created a robot monkey ninja to take over Iceland, which ended really badly… I swore never to either work my arse off with a whole bunch of people or to create robot monkey ninjas to take over Iceland ever again. Today, I shall be breaking one of those rules and tomorrow, I’ll be creating a new rule to swear to never break… Licking strangely colored rocks.
First video blog is almost ready to be put together and posted. ETA this weekend.
