Eats, Shoots, and Leaves......
Or rather, Eat, shoot and leave off and go to sleep.
Eat when you can , whatever there is.
Shoot when the light is right. Whenever that is.
And sleep when you're not doing either.
Magic. And more magic.
Spent about 36 hours in NY shooting non-stop. When you dress Malena as a Fairy and nip off to Times Square , stand in the MIDDLE of it, and I am talking a traffic island mid way across the thing, and start with the filming, you get an education in On The Front Lines production very very quickly. ( may get an Oscar for Stratigec use of an umbrella...)
Saw the most beautiful church in the world. Saw poetry in a princess gown. Met some very nice priests.
Aquired a red, sporty looking car, and managed to find our way back to a ferry that actually DID take us back to where we were going. If not at the time we thought we were going. Followed rule # 1 ( see top of blog ) and found a pizza place that would deliver to a, uh, pier, that we didn't know the name of.
Oh, and my bit? I rocked. ( what did you THINK was going to happen?????? )
The light was right tonight, as the moon was full. ( the ocean takes direction well to a point, very good when they say ACTION!!!! , It goes right to it, waves , the whole bit, but it doesn't do real well with CUT!!!!! ) ( Also, I didn't see any icebergs, but this Ocean is COLD! ) Our directors say the light will be right again in a few hours, when the sun comes up.....
I'm not hungry, or shooting, so, I will take my own advice, and be off to sleep.
Moons and Magic,
Lorraine ( and Malena )
