Tomorrow is the final day of shoot. The end of the 10 weeks of non-stop work here in Dublin. I can definitely say that I’ve learned a ton, met the greatest people and have had experiences of a lifetime. I will always look back on this adventure, it’s been a crazy ride. I’ll maybe write a more heartfelt blog when I’m not so tired, but now it’s time to pack my life away into two suitcases!
I had a feeling I wouldn’t keep up with this blog, too little free time and no stable internet connection.
We’re down to one week left folks. It’s been a crazy ride. I honestly can’t believe how fast these months have past. Thinking back to my first day of shoot makes me slightly embarassed. I was just a helpless confused intern from America who never stepped foot on a film set and didn’t know how to work a walkie talkie. I’m glad to say that now I fully understand all the works that go into making a movie, and how to make the perfect cup of tea. This whole experience wouldn’t be anything though without the people I’ve been working with. I have made so many strong bonds and friendships with people that I hope always remains. I’m going to sit in my room tomorrow and just write letters to everyone, I feel like each person I’ve met along the way has helped me tremendously through this whole film. Everyone in their own way means so much to me, and it’s going to be so hard to say goodbye. Imagine working with the same people every day for eleven hours, five days a week, for three months. This whole situation kind of reminds me of high school but mashed into a shorter amount of time. Everyone seems to vanish completely from your life once the film wraps. I know I wont see many of these people again, but I hope that I do keep in touch with a handful that have really helped me grow as a person and as an assistant director trainee. :)
To further my European travels, I have a little holiday planned after next weekend. I will be going to Barcelona for a week with my family, then off to Prague, London, Scotland and finally the US.
Hope everyone is doing well back at home, see you soon!
Oh hey, just being part of the Kaw tribe on the set.
How many ADs does it take to put up tracking markers on a gigantic green screen?
Went and saw Kate Nash on Sunday! She put on a great live show (music wise, her stage presence was surprisingly not witty and friendly, it was kind of disappointing). I’ve always wanted to see her live though, and the stage set up was amazing. It was a fun time!
We’ve moved the film to the studios now, hello green screen world! It’s crazy, I’m going to have to take a picture to post the lime-green world I’m spending most of my time in. The cast and crew feels like a huge family to me now. This weekend we’re having a get together to wrap the locations department, I’m going to miss ‘em!
Tomorrow is Friday, WOOHOO!
lovely bike day.
Filming at Dublin Castle tomorrow right in city centre! It’s going to be totally hectic, but a change of scenery is always refreshing. This past week has been crazy. I’ve been able to see a lot of Dublin and went to Nottingham, England this weekend for a total of 28 hours to see some friends from back home. I’ve been having a blast here. I could use some more sleep, but other than that I really love it.
Galway tomorrow :)
