    You're allowed to wake up before responding.
    Ha! You're on the money. I've been averaging about 90 mins to 3 hours of sleep per night.

    Crew = Me, gaffer, best boy, and b-unit DP doing all crew work including audio. Days are 12 hours, shooting 10-15 scenes per day.
    Hard to say exactly how many pages as the only script I have is in column form. Right hand is dialogue, left hand is scene description.

    There's a full blown art dept, hair and make up, and a two - three person wardrobe dept. A couple of pa's helping out a lot, very talented guys actually.
    Several producers, and a few specialists like underwater safety advisor for a tank scene, and transpo for the vintage cars.

    Shot in Roger Deakins's former home today and he actually stopped by which put me in my head. Didn't get a chance to pay my regards as I was shooting, and it felt like he didn't want to draw attention. Exciting to see the man none-the-less.

    Heading to Malibu Creek tomorrow for EXT's. We've been informed there's a New Zealand Mud-snail invasion, so that should be fun...ah, production, what a life.

    Oh, and we'd tell you if the work sucked. Believe you me.
    Big sources matter.

    Great stuff Bill!

    Shot in Roger Deakins's former home today and he actually stopped by which put me in my head.
    Cool, though possibly stressful?, fringe benefit!

    When meeting celebrities and/or figures of authority, it's important to have a couple of quips that puts them back in the place. Back c. 1989, I was working at a relatively high end video store on the Westside when Jeffrey Jones sauntered in one day. So, he began to talk about shooting a new TV series, etc. He is Mr. Big Shot and I am nothing. This goes on for a few minutes. Then, I say, "You know, Jeff. Your roles were indeed very impressive but, in order to keep our customers more humble, I offer this as a retort".

    And then I pulled out a laser disc copy of "Howard the Duck".

    A second later, the guy was totally cracking up. Jeffrey Jones, the famous Hollywood actor was no more. He became Jeff the customer instead.

    Simply beautiful imagery Bill, nice job you are doing. They aren't paying you enough, it's amazing what you are doing with your micro crew. Rock on!
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.
