We’re at the midway point of filming “Surrogate Valentine!” Friday was a long day (12 hours) and I just got back from a fun blogger meetup at midnight so I’ll try to make the day’s recap quick.
An organic Los Angeles apple during hair/makeup…
…not that it really ended up mattering because it was SO WINDY out that my hair flew everywhere, and I wound up with sunglasses in every shot.
See how cold? I was wearing gloves when I consumed this Cliff Bar en route between locations.
We shot at the Blue Danube Coffee House
Cute cafe inside, but we were shooting outdoors.
I ordered a Mighty Leaf Ginger Twist as my prop drink
Next up – Kansas and 19th
Lunch break at the Vietnamese Restaurant Sunflower in Potrero Hill
I got the Chicken Pho (though they called it “Noodle Soup” on the menu) with veggies…
The usual garnishes on the side –
HUGE BOWLS OF FOOD.
Everyone’s order was ginormous. I ate all of the veggies/chicken out of mine and maybe 1/4 of the broth/noodles. I feel like I barely made a dent in it.
The star and the director:
After lunch we hit the Mission District. I loved this neighborhood.
Squid delivering a baby!
Unfortunately, this was the loudest street in the world. Aside from the usual traffic noise, we were also competing with ANOTHER film crew a block away:
So we moved to a new location.
Wind-blown and freezing but happy!
Last shot of the day:
Saturday will be an easy day for me – just one shot in the evening. I’ll be back with a blogger meetup recap before then!
