In between inquiries as to whether or not I have bronchitis (dunno) (but there's both acute and chronic!, or so says Wikipedia), I've also managed to hack out some pretty spectacular castles in the air. Last time I wrote I listed all of my ideas--some more baked than others. I'm... Continue reading

It's October. I last wrote in July? August? Things of consequence that have happened since then: That job that I got? Got fired in two weeks. This put me into a tail spin of something depressing, and I ended up trying to figure out what the hell was up. And... Continue reading

Back in New York. We've got 3.5 minutes of a rough cut, and I have discovered something about myself and filming. (This will be gross. You have been warned.) When we were filming in Cleveland in May, there were some thunderstorms, which seemed about right for this ridiculous year of... Continue reading

So in the space between when last we spoke and...well, now, I got a job. It's going to last right up to the time when the rough cut is due! Yaaaaay! (Sarcastic yay. By the way.) Job is a great job, but the first rule of the Internet is that... Continue reading

We wrapped last night. ...We wrapped. Last night. Last night we wrapped. We struggled with weather, college administrators (everyone who was there will understand that if I go into the detail that I'd like, I might be held liable for libel. Except it's true...), labor laws, weather, logistics, missing keys,... Continue reading

One unexpectedly filled with Gideon's Bible. Actually, it feels like today really started last night. I finished my shot list (rousing cheer!) and decided to go hang out with my 2nd AD (Andrew) and the guy who introduced me to my 2nd AD (Mooch). We got to talk about acting... Continue reading

Hello there blog! I have been sorely neglecting you of late, in the midst of commencement, bus rides (still), and the natural attrition of crew members. We are now looking for extras! Here's the flyer that lovely wonderful Andrew Gorell came up with: Pretty All the Time is Cleveland Heights’... Continue reading

I have done tooken the very last bus ride of the semester, and my god was it ever tremendous. It involved oversleeping, a taxi ride from Upstate Manhattan to mid-town, a Bolt Bus stand-in (Hello, Peter Pan!), a bus driver who'd never been to DC before, a deaf seatmate (who... Continue reading

DUDES. Today, the Kickstarter campaign ended. $5,434 raised. 56 people donated. Amazing. I ask all the people who donated to let me get through the filming before I tackle making you all buckeyes and T-shirts and formal thank you letters. I'm planning to have a kickass buckeye making party, though,... Continue reading

Tomorrow is the second to last week of this...well. Quixotic? Asinine? Stubborn? Possibly praiseworthy but probably mostly dumb? All words apply equally to the strange land of the bus that I have become intimately acquainted with. The parts of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza have flipped weekly between me and... Continue reading

This past week has been a little rocky. I (once again) got commentary from one of my friends who has (repeatedly) thought out loud that shooting in Cleveland is a huge huge hassle for me and thinks that I'm making life too hard on myself. To this I say: thhhhhhhhppppppbt.... Continue reading

Hello, blog! Today is a day of minor catastrophes and major hopes. Found out from my DP that we're having a rough time getting any crew up to Cleveland without pay. Which. Well. Yeah, I can see that. We've budgeted for paying some people--department heads and things, but still, it's... Continue reading

My darling dad is brilliant. No, really, he is (I'm not just bragging. I mean, I am. But not just). He's got like 30 patents on whoozits and whatsits that work with biomechanical engineering and can help patients with spinal cord injuries grasp things and stuff. Quite honestly, his field...

I'm at work, pretending to study Final Cut Pro for my test tomorrow, and listening to Pandora--the Arcade Fire station--and Feist's 1234 just came up, infusing me with happy for about 4 minutes. Which made me think about other music which makes me happy, notably this song. It's the music... Continue reading

So. Right now (even as I type!), I'm looking at my Kickstarter page. On it, I see $5,118. My minimum goal was $5,000. There is more of the one that there is of the other. I feel--god. I feel like I fell asleep at 11 p.m. and woke up at... Continue reading

I have been resembling the ass-end of a cloud recently (fun fact: did you know that I was almost named Cloud? True story). So I will now bring you things that are delightful. Kind of like a commercial break. Pugs and goats! Now, raise your hands in the air and... Continue reading

Back in DC, after a weekend of traveling to Pittsburgh, picking up Adam from the airport, an Irish wake, finding a picture of my grandmother as a young woman that looks exactly like me, seeing my surrogate cousin, a funeral, a burial, a profound nap, dinner with my fellow father's...

I'm about to hit the road up north from this semi-Southern city. Up to flat apple pie and relatives and unexpectedly robust cultural institutions and sadness. We had the first production meeting. I'm embarking on Assignment: Storyboards. I'm a little frozen by this one, as I've proven to take a... Continue reading

When last we left our intrepid heroine (that would be me), I had a syllabus to finish (done!), a fundraiser to go to, comps to turn in, a midpoint to write, a project for work, and a second reading/sneaky fundraiser to plan. Since that time, I stayed up until 4... Continue reading

Elaine Coburn was born to an Irish and French Catholic family in New Orleans. I never really knew any stories about her upbringing, except that there are two old and beautiful paintings of women hanging in her house--they must have been painted sometime around the middle of the 19th century....

Update! After wrestling with the New York City subway and nearly having a no-food meltdown in the Apple store (Adam is sitting next to me singing "iPad2 was an iPad zoo..."), the F-key is FIXED. 15 pages of the screenplay later, I am a very sleepy person. (He's now onto... Continue reading

Focusing on NOT the film today. So, traditionally I ride my bike to such an extent that I've seriously contemplated getting a tattoo of a bicycle spokes in the form of a compass rose on my back. I haven't done it because I am a wuss. Today is the first... Continue reading
