Behind-the-scenes of Day 1 filming Yes We’re Open in San Francisco.
Monday is the opening day for production on my new movie “Yes We’re Open!” I sleep for about 4 hours I am so excited!
There are bagels, burritos, cereals, oatmeal, and lots of fruit for breakfast. I nibble on half a pumpernickel + veggie cream cheese with a clementine.
A couple hours later, a piece of scone that the “Yes We’re Open” writer HP Mendoza claims tastes like Fruit Loops.
He is right – there was something very florescent tasting about those blueberries….
For lunch I nibble on crudite with hummus, edamame, and a turkey/swiss cheese wrap with mayo…
…followed by some chips and salsa, plus berries.
We are so ahead of schedule that we wind up shooting some of the sex scenes (originally planned for today)!
Carlen gives me that “special glow.” It basically involves blush and a spray bottle with water for “sweat.”
Parry Shen and I look cozy, but we have a lot of company! Hello, cameras!
If anyone ever tells you that filming sex scenes is sexy, they are lying. Not only are you surrounded by people, every move you make is choreographed. Plus, doing it take after take gets really old. There is zero spontaneity!
