Night Owls

Night Owls is the name of the Indie movie I’m about to wrap tomorrow. It broke a few records for me, for sure.

It was 6 day weeks (When I asked them to pay double for the sixth day they said yes, so I said okay)

It started the day after The Shangri La Suite ended, so I worked 11 days straight. Considering it was night shoots, you could round it up to 12

After 1 day off, we returned for another 6 days of night shoots. Thats two new records for me- 12 night shoots within 13 days- And 17 days on set with only one day off

Now with 2 days left of Night Owls, I’m adjusting to the day shoots, but sleeping is tough. We all got maybe 1 hour the first day of transition. And 4 the second. But I just got 7 hours last night, and I look forward to my busy day.

As I’m wrapping up Night Owls, I’m prepping for the next feature, my family is visiting in 2 days, and my ETSY store is selling a lot and breaking new records too. I have never been this blessed and busy. 2014 you are awesome.

I’m most definitely looking forward to taking a few days off with my family :)

I’ve booked 3 straight gigs! Thats 3 features, in a row!

As we near the end of our shoot, all day it seemed “Thats a picture wrap on Avon” “Thats a picture wrap on Emily” “Thats a picture wrap on Tatonka”

It’s making me feel sad. I never want this movie to end

Script supervising in action

Here’s an example:

If we’re following hand held, or if we are panning all the way with an actor, I might say to the director “Let’s do one take, having the actor just cross clean out of frame. For safety. (And for an extra option in the editing room.) What do you think?”

It’s our last week shooting “The Shangri-La Suite!” It’s been a dream! I want to keep going. If anyone needs a script supervisor, my availability is opening up again next week :)

Post note: I got one! It starts the day after we wrap, and finishes right when my family comes to town. How lucky! And how quickly! I’m so so grateful, and already looking forward to this next feature

We’re on a mesa!

Dawn Gilliam (just IMDB her) taught us a 3hr class for Acrobat Professional. For free. And it was awesome. I’m feeling prepped and excited. I got skills. Look out.
