In Production: Day 1 – Off to a Good Start


This will be short. Day 1 went off smoothly. The main issue for the day was to get a police car to film in, and that ended up working out through some word of mouth.

It was rediculously cold this morning in the middle of a pig farm. Pigs are also quite funny, as well as quite noisy. And dirty. 

I woke up at 4 AM, and it’s now coming on 2 AM, which brings this to a 22 hour day. Yet I haven’t felt this energized in weeks, and I’m not very tired, which explains this late night blogging.

Per my previous post, I realized the Venti days of Monday and Tuesday weren’t entirely my doing. There was a large amount of information I needed but didn’t have, such as a schedule of when we would be where. 

The stress addicting day of Monday was more out of necessity than procrastination, yet still fun and addicting. 

Time to go to sleep (fully clothed) so I can get up in four hours. Film production life – I wouldn’t have it any other way.
