Day 1

We completed our first day of shooting at about 1am last night. Right on schedule. Aside from a lot of a-holes who drove by shouting (apparently our big lights made a spectacle) and the countless cars with seemingly NO MUFFLERS on them that drove by, I think things went really well.

The shots were gorgeous, we even pulled out the dolly. I felt *fairly* comfortable on set and yelling "action." I worked with the actors. I talked with the crew.

Of course this morning I got an email from....someone...who has completely made me feel like crap about the whole evening and has punctured my confidence in such a way that it will be hard to recover in time for tonight's shoot.

Right now I'm hating my life. Which pisses me off...because I should be loving it!

I'm sending you my magic invisible suit. It deflects such comments.

I'll probably need it back next week though. ;)

Hang in there. You are doing something amazing and brave. You've really got guts, plus a caring heart. That's a tough combo to manage.

Try to ignore the haters. Please. I know, easier said than done. Just know that there are tons of people out there who think you're awesome and doing what you do best and the meanies can go suck it. I mean it.

i agree. i think what you're doing is fantastic! but i also know it's super hard to ignore stuff like that. too bad we can't turn off our sensitivity once and awhile.

keep doing what your doing! :)
