Lack of sleep

For two years my life has been trying to get this film made. Now it’s happening and I’m so nervous that I’m going to do something to screw it up, I’m forgetting to enjoy it. Do you know what I mean? There’s a lot of stress on the Producer – insurance, payroll, SAG paperwork, hiring crew, making deals with companies to save money, cast, logistical things, mansion concerns (our crew is living in a mansion turned college dorm in Worcester).
Anyway, I love making movies. If I didn’t, I never could’ve pulled any of this off. Right now, what’s making it worth the lack of sleep, super long days, and constant feeling that I haven’t done enough as I lay in bed at night, is my team. My Production Manager Dave is amazing. My assistant Christina is keeping everything organized. I’m very lucky to have the team I have. It’s everyone’s movie now. OK – I have to try and go to sleep. What can I count in my head to try falling asleep? I’ve tried sheep and I know this makes no sense since my eyes are closed, but it hurts my eyes when I try to count sheep, because I move my eyeballs from left to right trying to watch the imaginary sheep I’m counting.

The rain didn’t come from the sky, it came from the side.

Kaz and Dave get wet in WorcesterWe watched the Laker game last night. Sorry, I call it “The Laker Game” because I am a Laker fan. At the 3rd period break we ran over to the Price Chopper to get some snacks. On the way back we were hit with a thunderstorm that produced rain falling sideways and up from the ground, it seemed at times. We were drenched. Mind you, we (Kaz the music producer and Dave the production manager) were all in flip flops running through the streets carrying groceries. Branches were falling, lighting was hitting trees, and we had all kinds of sh%# in our eyes, Anyway, all I could think… how great it is to be in New England making this movie. These are the times I will not forget. I love the rain. We don’t get much of it in LA so I sometimes I pay my neighbors to spray me with their hose.Kaz & Dave got hit by branches. They were lucky.
