I shot my commercial today. I was totally stoked because my call time was at a normal hour, 9am, and we did an outside shoot at Griffith Park, which is pretty close to my house.
I am never quite sure what the food on set is going to be like, so I packed some snacks for myself: apples, grapes, celery, almonds. And I also brought some quinoa in case the breakfast options were only bagels. Bagels are yummy but they definitely don’t give me sustained energy.
I ate a little quinoa on the road. When I got there I realized there was no reason to worry. There was an omelet station with lots of veggies to choose from. I got an omelet with sun-dried tomatoes, chives, and spinach.
I got through about half of it before it was time to head to hair and makeup.
My shots were first so I went right to set and worked straight through until a late lunch was served at 2:30. Craft services had all kinds of snacks out but I was actually still full from breakfast right up until lunch.
I got the shrimp scampi, sauteed spinach and a salad
I had a view of Silverlake from my lunch table
And they had an interesting cookie concoction for dessert – it was a sugar cookie and chocolate chip cookie make into brownies.
It was good, no doubt. But it sounds better than it actually tasted.
We shot straight through until 8pm this evening and I snacked on some carrots, grapes, nuts and a piece of chocolate throughout the evening.
I was tired and happy when I got home. And so grateful that my husband had already made me dinner – chicken sausage with leftover zucchini and onions, and a big salad.
Now I am off to take a warm shower and relax a little. I’ll let you know when the commercial starts airing so you can keep an eye out for it!
