IATSE Strike

It's been a while since I have posted- more on that later.

In the meantime, here is an outstanding timeline about the IATSE Local One strike on Broadway:

I will write my thoughts and opinions about this strike (as well as the WGA strike) very soon. Until then, please support these hardworking union employees. Thank you.

Today's Happiness List

Today’s Happiness List is brought to you by:
The letter - F - for Filmmaking

Happiness is...

• Having a place to sit while waiting on the set

• Finding pieces of fudge at craft services

• Having people call me by my name instead of “Hey you” or “Stand In.”

• Working with great crew members

• Double time- not the kind where you have to move really fast but the kind where you earn twice your hourly pay

• Free Starbucks on set on late nights

• Getting paid just because I look like someone famous

• Mistakes in the schedule that allow me to go home after one hour with full pay (!)

• Meeting awesome actors who don’t have chips on their shoulders

• Avoiding those that do

• Finding wireless internet access so I can submit for principal while on set

• Making jokes like, “We’re called stand-ins because we stand in everyone’s way.” It’s not really a joke, though.

• Earning money towards pension and health care

• Earning money towards Unemployment, which I will file when I finish this project

• Getting paid to work in an industry that I love- living the dream!
