you're reading...


Hadnt directed actors on camera before; was great fun, though very hard work. am not the director, but was very involved in the whole direction process today, finally putting some of that UK training to use. gruelling shoot, lasted all day, and the actors had improved drastically by the end. editing is tomorrow, will go after ive sent off two more scripts to GICS.
just got back home, armed with a giant watermelon i bought on impulse at CR park market no. 1. am wondering whether to eat this watermelon now, and if so, how much of it. such are the lofty concerns occupying my lofty mind at the moment
