Here’s part two of yesterday’s shoot – probably our most challenging one yet!
We filmed some scenes in a cab, which, as you can imagine, is not as simple as it seems. Lots of things are out of your control – the angle of the sun, traffic, no camera operator….
But even more unmanageable was filming in The Mission District at night! We returned to The Roxie for evening exterior shots, which wound up being much wackier than the day at the Farmers Market…
…especially with the theater operating its normal business and people on the street getting drunker and drunker
While we waited for it to get dark, I ate some Thai food – mostly veggies/tofu with some Fried Rice and Beef Pad See Ew
Once we started filming there was a lot of stop and go. I waited in the director’s car to stay outa the cold and commotion
Around 10pm a very sweet crew member made me some shrimp ramen noodles…
…but I only wound up getting a few bites/sips in since I was called back on set right away. It lost heat quickly between takes
The closer we got to midnight, the crazier the street folks were getting. At one point we had our entire crew blocking off the sidewalk in a human chain like “Hands Across America.”
Got the midnight munchies and snacked on the only things I could find – Newman’s Own Sweets and Bella Viva dried currants
More cookies with falafel chips
When we finally wrapped at 12:30am I was grateful to find this Raw Revolution bar in my bag and devoured it on the drive back to the hotel
Unfortunately the late bedtime did not equal sleeping in. Woke up at 6:00 am and my call today isn’t until 4pm, so I basically spent 5 hours tossing and turning in bed.
Finally, around 11am, I gave up on the hope of sleep and headed to a nearby coffeehouse to get some work done.
Wasn’t too hungry, so I started with some peppermint tea….
…but around 2pm I figured I should eat something since we’ll be having “lunch” on set around 8. I ordered the Soup and Sandwich Combo
Really delicious and served piping hot, just the way I like it!
Finished half the sandwich – the portabello, which was also vegan
The Little Bird Coffeehouse is a real gem! Totally saved me from going crazy this morning….
It’s gonna be another late night – only two more days left of filming “Yes We’re Open.”
