. . .that, of course, is the dictionary definition of the word film.
I want to just let all frequent SS Fun readers know that posts may be few and far between for the next six weeks as we dive into production on Body/Antibody. I don’t write too much about it on this blog, but it has now officially taken over my life. Today was the last tour I will work until after July 14 (yes, we wrap on Bastille Day!). . .I just hope the companies I work for will remember me when I come crawling back. We’ve got most of our crew assembled, most of our cast, most of our locations. . . .that’s what’s driving me crazy — the “most of” aspect. What we have, we love. We have an awesome DP — we have the best leading man and the best leading lady — the most enthusiastic investors. . .the stuff that is assembled is solid. It’s that there is a lot of loose ends scurrying all over the place and just two guys (me and Kerry) trying to spin all these plates at the same time. There was some nice comedy tonight as we were alone at our primary location, wrestling with an air conditioner, convinced we were about to drop it onto the heads of the nice New York citizens walking home on the street below us. It was so friggin humid in there and I was sweating like a filthy hog (as I am sometimes wont to do) and Kerry had just been eating prawns and reeked of prawns and kept breathing his horrible prawn breath in my face as sweat poured in my eyes nearly blinding me.
And I thought — THIS IS CINEMA!!!!
