Why I Wasn't Online Today - PICS

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So basically I wasn't online today because there was a film crew in my apartment. Brian got sweet talked into directing a short film by a friend and I guess in the effort to save money they used our apartment for one scene. The desk I usually access TCS from was blocked by about a crew of 15.

I was going through withdrawals!! Anya and I hung out in the bedroom all day and watched more Northern Exposure on DVD.

Anyway, so you can see how overtaken my apartment was:

Yep...that's DOLLY TRACK in my living room...



Here's Brian directing from behind the monitor.



Let me tell you, by the time they finally wrapped for the night I was ready to kick them all out. My apartment is filthy now. Tomorrow after work will be spent mopping.

You must have been annoyed how your apartment was ravaged . I wouldn't want my bf doing that or he's taking a hike outside together with the crew

That's so cool, but I know the feeling. We've had ten people over here for a LAN party. I was so sick of seeing everyone that I picked up my bag and left!

I can just see the next short film - TCS Withdrawal!!

Just curious - if they made the mess, why aren't they mopping up?

My thoughts exactly! Anytime I've had tradesmen over they always cleaned up after themselves. Occassionally I talked them out of it, but it was always something they expected to do.

I'll suggest that film to Brian.

And you know what...I'm not sure why they didn't mop up. I was picking up water bottles and putting screens back on windows after they left.

Of course Brian promised he would mop and clean when he gets home from work today, but I'll be home a full hour and half before him so it will probably start to grate my nerves and I'll just do it myself.

It was just a short film, you know like 10 minutes or so. It's going to be part of a larger anthology/feature film.

Dolly track is kinda like a train track that they set up on the floor so that they can roll the camera along on it and any camera movement will be smooth and fluid as opposed to jerky like regular handheld video.

I told them the same thing, but they somehow made it work. Honestly they only had isues backing up far enough to get everything in the shot once and even then they were able to figure it out.

I thought it was the girl in the back with the brown hair, and blackish outift.
So then I got more interested in JUST WHO this Dolly Track chic was, as I had never heard of her before, So i checked up online for Dolly Track.

Nope. I'm just silly is all.
