Amazing Week w/ Commercials, TV, and Movies

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 16, 2014, 10:30 PM
I have had one of the best weeks since I've been out in Cincinnati.

First off, Wednesday thru Friday I PAed a P&G/Walmart commercial.  PAs are production assistants that are the lowest on the industry's food chain, but are lucky to see most sides/departments of a given production.  My work consisted of assisting the art department, helping set up craft services, loading/unloading odds and ends, coordinating talent with production, helping to lock down our shooting area from customers, and--of course--running out for lunch and breakfast.

Saturday was a more relaxed day of development on my own project.  I brought aboard another friend to an as-yet 8-year-long trilogy I've been developing with my girl, Rachel.  This friend, Shelby, I met in September when we worked art dept. together on two indie features.  She handled wardrobe and I handled sets & props.  She's amazing, not afraid to speak her opinion, and has astounding attention to detail.  She accepted the offer to come aboard to assist in the design process as our story is at last taking real shape.

Sunday was my first shooting day on the TV pilot I'm acting in.  Though we ran behind schedule the moment we arrived due to outside circumstances, we went in and did our best.  The first scene I shot went very quickly and I'm told I did beautifully, but it was such a rush.  When I finally got called to set, I maybe had two seconds from the director to ask where I would stand once I came in and that was it!  Time constraints forced us to do the scene quickly, and out of about 5 different angles shot, we only did one take of each!  Talk about pressure!  Once we left our interior space, though, things went a little slower.  A dialogue scene at the top level of a parking garage.  We did it probably six times total with about three different angles, and the wind flapping my straightened hair EVERYWHERE!  Dinner after was amazing.  Great crew, great cast.  Can't wait for round two!

Now, Monday and Tuesday were a definite highlight.  I got to work as a set dresser on the movie "Carol" starring Cate Blanchett!  I got a call from a buddy on Sunday at dinner if I could work and that the call time was 5.30....A.M.!  Being in Louisville at the time of the call was my sign that after dinner, I'd be driving straight home and bouncing into bed immediately.  Working on the film, I had no idea what to expect.  Everything moved super quick, but people were generally quite welcoming of my new face, and when I didn't understand something, they instructed me and if I had a question, they gave me a straight answer.  Sure, there was some drama, no set is without it, I've learned, but I shouldn't and won't go into detail about any of that.  My workload basically consisting of striking sets (breaking down, boxing up, and taking props/set pieces back to the warehouse) and loading up the trucks to prep other sets.  My first day was a constant load of tasks, which was amazing.  I don't think I've worked so hard for 12 hours in my life!  I should resent it, hahaha, but this is living the dream, and I love every bit of it.  One of the higher people on the team (now I can't remember his position) actually said something like an apology of the menial tasks I'd been handed, and I think he was generally quite taken when I replied "I don't mind any of it.  All these things have to get done, and I get that and I wanna help." (or something close to that ^_^)  So, basically, my two days consisted of loading and unloading trucks, sweeping, driving back rental props, and lifting heavy objects all day.  And if sharing a beer with the team at the end of my two day tour is my reward for the chaos of a real production, I'll take it.

Cheers, mates.  All this, just a reminder that dreams come true, but oft so slowly.  After a long high school education, 4 years of training in college, 2 years back home just writing and then working at a cinema, and now closing on 9 months in Ohio trying to get production and acting work, that Hollywood dream is finally getting oh-so closer.  I taste it more and more with each gig I get and every new person I meet.  

To dreaming big and chasing the pixie dust.
