Last day shooting the indie film “Surrogate Valentine.”
Sunday was my last day of shooting Surrogate Valentine. I start off the work day as usual, in hair and makeup with a free blog sample breakfast. This is from Vega Sport.
I mixed it with some water. Not too terrible tasting, considering it has spirulina in it (which I usually can’t stand).
But just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down! Lots of beautiful donuts on set.
I eat half of a coconut one with my Vega drink.
It is a full day – about 9 hours. Thanks, Serena, for taking on set photographer duties!
Between shots I snacked on an apricot.
We break for lunch at 3pm – takeout from North Beach Pizza.
I have an ooey gooey slice with tomatoes, peppers, artichoke, and basil.
A few hours later I picture wrap and say goodbye to everyone before Serena rushes me off to the airport. I felt like Dorothy at the end of the “Wizard of Oz.”
SFO is pretty crazy; I find a less-crowded wing and pick up a sandwich from “Klein’s Deli,” where there wasn’t a monster line.
I order a roasted turkey with mustard, pickles, lettuce and tomato.
On sourdough bread, of course.
They put this sandwich together in about 30 seconds and it is ah-maaaazing.
I’ve had this energy bar from Nutribiotic hanging out in my purse for weeks; I finally break it out while waiting for my plane to board.
It looks and tastes like a piece of really thick fruit leather…
And listen to Goh’s “Ulysses” album while I eat and people-watch. It is the perfect soundtrack for everything going on at that moment.
I’m really happy with how filming went – even though it is one of the lowest budget shoots I’ve ever worked on, it was definitely one of the most fun and fulfilling. I’m so grateful to Dave for giving me the opportunity to work with him and his crew again and feel lucky to have gotten to know/work with my very talented and cool co-stars.
I’m also feeling a bit sad (as I always do whenever I wrap a project I really care about) but it’s good to finally put “Rachel” to rest (I’ve been inhabiting her mind for over 3 months now) and get back to my husband, my dog, and SLEEP!!!
I got close to 7 hours last night. 🙂
Happy Belated Father’s Day to my Daddy!
