Havent had an update for a few days.

3 days ago I had my first day off.  It was somewhat uneventful.  Edited my reel and hung out with simona during the day.  Got a way-too-european haircut later in the day. Luckily when one of my 2nds ACs went back to slovinia he gave me a sweet cowboy hat as a goodbye present.  At night we went out to a restaurant where I had some decent pizza, more good wine, and then went home and hung out with ana and albert for an hour or two.  Albert is actually a really hilarious guy and weve been talking about working together again.  He is prepping a horror feature and we are discussing me shooting it.  Its in a sweet apartment in montreal.  yay.

2 days ago I had a ridiculous day.  It was 14 or 15 hours of hiking around the mountains in full sun.  Lots of wide exterior shots.  Pretty good looking stuff but kinda annoying to get around.  Luckily Ilia is an awesome 2nd and lots of fun. Too bad the the next day he had to leave because we got our red back from LA and will be shooting with it from now on.   Went out to eat with Ana and Burim (costume designer, fashion designer guy) when we got back into town.  It was a fancy italian place, had more pizza (haha), and awesome panna cotta.  Also good wine. 

Yesterday was pretty silly.  We got to location at 8am (2 hour drive, remember?) and our screwdriver broke when trying to change the lens mount.  There was no other screwdriver in the town, so we had to drive back down to Skopje and back up with a new one. For some reason red changed the screws in the camera to something totally different from what was in it when we sent it out so we werent ready at all for that.  So we started rolling at 2pm.  And we wrapped at 2am.  We shot sooo long.  But were done with that location now.

Peotr is pretty crazy to deal with.  He is really possessive and is driving albert crazy because albert is the 2nd unit DP, and peotr wont let him shoot anything.  We have a joke that albert is the button presser because peotr always comes over and sets exposure, frame, and lights it when albert is supposed to be shooting it.  Today was just as bad but we were given one scene and albert wanted me to light it for him. Basically I was lighting this tiny little scene with 2 closeups and today we found out peotr is really angry about it.  He basically set up a 4k outside the window really far away as moonlight and told us it was lit and to shoot it.  It was underexposed to the point that we couldnt see it on the monitor and the director wasnt happy at all, so we relit it.  Lighting and working with albert was pretty fun though.  It was fine other than the drama the next day.

Woke up today.  went to lunch. albert told me about drama.  Now we are going to clean up the camera, get everything working, and prepare for another little village that apparently is more beautiful and remote than this last one, then im going to get a massage.
