There are fighting sounds coming from the basement, stuntmen falling on the ground, fog from a machine floating up the stairwell. Someone actually just yelled, “Rolling…action!” We have a film crew at our house today, and it’s chaotic fun around here.
Last night, our dining room was full of pre-production work, painting and taping set pieces and putting together costumes. I came home to find a severed eyeball in the middle of our table. This morning, the living room coffee table became the hair and makeup station, while the stunt guys rehearsed in our kitchen. There are people everywhere and filmmaking flotsam and jetsam everywhere else and, like I said, it’s chaotic but it’s so fascinating to see all these pieces come together.
The director has asked that I don’t share the project just yet, so I can’t post any photos or details right now, but I can’t wait for you guys (and for me!) to see this when it’s done. The behind the scenes stuff looks so cool that the finished product is gonna be stunning.
Look, I know you guys are all just looking out for me, but it seems like every single picture I post of a plant or bug gets a comment about how it’s poisonous and I shouldn’t touch it. First, if I took a picture, that’s probably about all I’m doing near that piece of nature. I like to leave things be. Second, not everything can be poisonous, all right? The world is not that terrible. It just cannot be the case.
