This morning Indiana Allmang, who is doing an amazing job on cast hair and makeup, did my makeup. I felt very glamourous sitting in the chair and I was awed by Indie’s mastery of her art. It was a fun experience. I’ve been on camera so much lately and was on camera so much today in particular that I felt I needed making up.
I thought this was an ideal time to talk about some of the less glamourous aspect of my current life. For example, every evening after wrap, I take home the camera and the hard drive and lug them into my house for safe keeping. That means I have to be back on set just before our 7 am call, because I have the camera and nothing can happen without it.
This week, I got the important assignment of picking up our steady cam operator at 6:45 am. He had a lot of gear and we thought it would be great to get him to set in style… what better style than pickup by the executive producer.
And speaking of executive producing, I find that that part of my job involves going to the bank a lot — usually at dawn or close to midnight.
Then there are my uploading, tagging and web distribution responsibilities. Whenever I can be (which is usually between 9 pm and midnight), I’m on the web deploying content.
It may not be glamourous, but it is all fun and exciting. Made up or not, I’m loving every minute.
