Decided to try my hand at actually blogging early in the day today, rather than fitting in between various outings with friends or during someone's show or seconds before heading to do something else. I'm finding the change is (not surprisingly) very relaxing.
So right I am sitting in bed, trying really hard to catch up on email before I need to get up, shower, and meet with the costumer for the Buffy video. I know I have been dropping hints here left and right, and that at this point, it probably doesn't even sound like a YouTube video anymore. My friend Forest has a TON of theatre and artsy friends, so our little idea, somehow over the course of planning, has turned into a rather large production with a cast and crew of something like thirty people. It's kind of crazy. I've never really been involved in a production like this, so I am really enjoying the experience.
Last night, the rest of Jimmy's meetup was a ton of fun. Kayley and I tweeted out that we were there to see if we could get any last minute fans to show up, and low and behold one did! This girl named Caity (who just happened to see our tweets on her way home) showed up, and apparently had come to a ROFLCOPTOUR show in Boulder last summer. She was really nice, and we ended up talking to her for most of the rest of the evening. Then this super weird guy came and sat RIGHT IN BETWEEN US, which made conversing difficult, not to mention awkward when he started drinking water from Caity's glass. So weird.
I forgot to mention in yesterday's post that we met a girl named Bam Bam. Seriously. Like "Pebbles and". She was really nice; just came to support Jimmy and everything. But her name was Bam Bam! For no reason other than that it was her name! I have never met anyone named Bam Bam before, not unless they lived in the Stone Age.
After the meetup (and after the restaurant forcing me to take leftover Chinese food with me for the road, not that I'm complaining) Jimmy and I both had to head over to UW for the first night of shooting for the Buffy project. It was great timing that Jimmy was going to be in town this week, and Forest immediately jumped on figuring out a great little cameo for him. So starting around 10 pm that night, our friend Alexander began the long process of putting Vampire prosthetics on Jimmy. I spent most of the evening alternating between taking behind the scenes footage and holding Jimmy's prosthetics on while the glue dried. I really can't wait until you guys get to see this stuff.
The makeup actually took much, much longer than the actual filming, but I think we working until almost midnight. I don't have a picture of the final makeup right now, but he looked scary. It made me super excited to do the rest of the filming this weekend with the full cast. :)
Jimmy I went out for Dick's burgers after the shoot, which is always a staple for those visiting Seattle, and then I think I finally crawled my way into bed around 2am. I have a lot of long days coming up, but I couldn't be more pumped for them. I'll be back with more updates tomorrow!
