this time next week i’ll be beginning a trip with one of my best friends and collaborators. we’re going to minnesota to work on a film for the next two months. as part of the art department i’ll be working as a set dresser and he’ll be working as lead man. it will be the longest stint for each of us to work on a feature and be on location. we’re really fortunate to be able to go through this experience together.
rumors that we’ll be staying in a defunct college dorm and may be lighting cars on fire is both exciting and anxiety inducing. much of our shoot is exterior, meaning we’ll be shooting outdoors, and the cold weather is a concern.
my hope is to catalog this journey, which is a great leap in following my dream, so that i can remember all the nuances of this time.
send me shooting stars to light my way.
