We seem to have settled into a more manageable pace, but of course, as soon as I say that, the floodgates will burst.
All kinds of commercial work going on. Just had some clients in from Denver shooting two spots. Great people, lots of fun to work with. I meant to drop by the set over the weekend to steal some of their craft service (actually, they invited me), but a lovely friend and colleague gave me courtside tickets to the NBA game! 😮 Couldn’t pass that up!
Now I’m balancing days between keeping up with work and trying to unpack boxes at my new place. Finally got the ‘puter up and running and the wireless working, so it’s starting to feel like home, except that I still can’t get into my kitchen, LOL!
The Oscar party on the 5th was fun. I spent the whole day finishing up my move, so I got home exhausted and covered in soot from cleaning the fireplace at the old place, but I took a quick shower, threw on a dress and made it to the reception a mere hour late. 😉
But I’m so glad I went! I talked about voice casting with one of the animators on the Oscar-winning “Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit”, right after her film won. Also got asked by another Oscar-winner if I’d speak to a class of filmmakers he’s working with at the Art Institute about casting. No prob! The mayor, one of our congressmen, and my fave city commissioner were there, but they were all busy getting schmoozed. The food was fantastic. Oyster shooters for days and wine à volonté! Lots of colleagues and interesting new people to talk to. Needless to say, I didn’t get to watch much of the awards show…. 😮 Anyone care to comment on Best Picture?
This weekend, I spent about an hour on the phone with my good friend, the casting director of NBC’s Medium. I know an actress who may be right for one of the roles on an upcoming episode, so I arranged for them to meet in LA. We shall see!
