You Can’t Always Get What You Want…

MN0046520But sometimes you get what you need – came on the radio in standstill rush hour traffic.  I was belt singing along, happy as a clam until I noticed my cheeks were wet.  Wow – so I really am a girl after all!   I had actual tears of joy streaming down my face.  Today I feel like I’ve given birth to my firstborn – and without some messy baby with which to contend – score!

Today it was just me, Shane and trippin’ in a room to the finish.  It was getting scary – we were quickly running out of time, another client was due in.  You could cut the tension with a knife in those final 40 minutes.  But he did it, bless that beautiful boy.  It felt like we’d gone on a journey together by movie’s end.  We shared a big hug before parting.  I felt he was as invested as I was.

He was truly amazing.  He worked several days while I was out of town as well, toiling away with such great attention to detail.  I could tell he was making the same movie as I.  His instincts were perfect.  He knew just what I wanted without having to ask.

I hope we get to make a movie together again.  Thanks, Shane!

Kenny and I had champagne, steaks, wine and beer in an all night celebration.  I chatted excitedly on the phone with teammates Agustin, Cliff, Ian, Brian and Circus.  We’re all family now.  We’re on this journey together.  What a ride!  Is there anything more wonderful than making films?

I don’t even mind this morning’s hangover or the fact that I have to drive back to Santa Monica yet again (yuck!) to drop off our master at Copyright Video (yay!)
