The end of Week 5 of “11:11” production ended this week.  We were all over Huntington Beach Saturday and Sunday, doing pickup shots, shooting in a cemetery and getting the last of the beach scenes.  Only one weekend remains (and a 1/2 day of montage scenes to shoot) around the 1st of May.  Toward the end of shooting Sunday afternoon, the Twitter feed got a little out of control.  Interns were insulted, someone was blasphemous (possibly me) a composer was threatened (again, me, death by choking) and pictures of gummi  bears were taken.  
See, I do work on set. Someone wakes me up occasionally so I can take a picture.

I’ve been neglecting the blog this week (and much of last).  I apologize to all 3 readers, the personal drama permeating my household will be ending soon, at least in the physical sense (emotionally, it could be awhile. Or, with a bottle of good rum, maybe just 24 hours).  I will be better at keeping up with the blog, if for no other reason than I am starting scoring on 11:11 next week.  Not prep, not encoding footage, actual writing.  And blogging about said writing. AND possibly snippets of said writing. 
For those of you reading my blog that want more than just boring “score” information, I’ll sandwich in some posts about….. I don’t know, puppies or something.  Although this blog is part of my website, and is mostly a professional forum in which I talk about my craft, I may try to inject more personal tidbits about who I am as a person and what makes me tick. 
Or I’ll just post pictures of puppies.  Eating kittens.  Eating mice.  Eating really small puppies.  Kind of a “circle of life” series.
