First shooting days are usually for ironing out glitches, but today went really smoothly - we were shooting in an abandoned hospital near Pasadena (yesterday makes the third time in a calendar year that I've shot there) which happens to have pretty easy access in and out. It's also helping that they've got a nice long shooting schedule (this is over 10 shooting days, and hour-long TV shows are usually on an 8 shooting day schedule), so we're not being run ragged.
Plus, this is one of the nicest crews I've worked with. Everyone's polite, relaxed and we made good time - it was only a 12 hour day.
We were still sorting out our Kino Flo order today - we have tungsten and daylight balanced tubes, and we're carrying enough tubes to do a complete swap (so we can make all the heads daylight or tungsten), but the rental house sent over too many tubes, so I was put to the job of sorting out and sending back the excess.
I was trying to explain my progress to my boss, and since he was busy with other things that were more pressing, he just said "I trust you to get it right" and walked off.
That makes me nervous. As soon as he signed off on it, that was pretty much a guarantee that I'm going to fuck it up somehow.
I had planned to go swim after work, but I got a terrible headache right at wrap and went straight home.
We're in the same area (not the same location, though) tomorrow, so maybe on my way home - since I go right by a gym with a pool.
