Doing a music video shoot tomorrow. I’m director, lighting director, and first camera. My daughter (age twelve) is working second camera, something she’s turned out to be a useful mammal at. I’ve done grads, weddings, and dance festivals before, but this is a whole new thing for me. Also a much higher level project.
Think I’ve re-checked gear for the fifteenth time and have spent all day reviewing shot lists and lighting diagrams. Need to go to bed and get some rest, but can’t shut my head off. Am also wound up about the number of people I’ll be working with tomorrow. A lot of extras for the dance scenes we’re shooting. One of the triggers for my symptoms.
Wish I could sleep…
