Additional shooting day 1
Today was the first of four days of additional shooting for GWBG2012. Everyone kept saying “can you believe it’s been a year…” and I would bristle and correct them that it had only been ten and a half months. But yes, there’s no excuse for taking this long to finish a little drag movie.
It was a lot of fun, all of us together again. We never had a wrap party because
we’re really cheap there aren’t enough of us to fill a party. Also: Not all of us were back together. Some of our old crew got jobs (whatever those are) since last time. And there are no Coco scenes in the new material, so Clinton wasn’t here either.
Clinton did however record the new GWBG theme song with Jeffrey and Jack over at the composer’s studio this evening, so no one was completely left out.
The scenes themselves were fun, but unfortunately no one was accidentally killed so there’s not much to report. Or maybe there were interesting stories unfolding all around me and I’m just a really bad blogger. I don’t really know what to look for. It’s a weird experience making these films. I wake up and make coffee and do my little routines and then suddenly a small horde descends on my place. You can’t beat the convenience, if nothing else. And I don’t know if it’s because it’s in my home and with my friends that it feels so little like “real” work. I do know this: I may or may not be good for much in the larger scheme of things, but I am good at directing “Girls Will Be Girls” films. And I feel lucky to now and then have that opportunity.
