New Balance

I just got home from a 17 hour shift on the set of the new New Balance commercial.  My first time on a professional set and I have been invited to be a part of the team going forward.  When your income is project based and you’re just starting out, every little bit helps.  I just calculated that I’ve been up for 29 hours.  I feel remarkably good.  Funny thing though I’m having a beer at 9:00 in the morning as though I just got off a long day at work…oh wait, I did. 🙂  I may catch a couple hours sleep in a bit, but I may stay up until I go to bed tonight.  They had a raccoon on set.  One of the first things you learn in film is don’t work with animals or kids.  Kids are ok.  dogs are ok.  Raccoon’s?  Are you kidding me?  And they set up the lone shot with the raccoon for the last shot of the day.  Surprise, surprise, they were an hour and a half behind, the sun came up on a night shoot, and the raccoon was uncooperative.  Gong show!

One thought on “New Balance”

  1. I used to work in recording studios, def pulling 12-15 hour shifts pretty regularly. Your life sort of melts away into revolving around the people you’re working with at some point. Hopefully you got to work outside!
