Calm Before the Storm

So I start principle photography on "Monsters in the Woods" on Monday. Everything is pretty much prepped. I have to say, that Robert Bravo, my producer, as done a really good job with pre-production and this is the most hands-off I've ever been in regards to a lot of the organizational work. I usually take care of most of the crewing up, contact lists, equipment rentals, ect...but for the 1st time in three movies I feel confident that things will be taken care of.

Usually in the days leading up to a shoot I'm running around like a chicken with his head cut off, but today, I'm finishing up actual director prep, going over my shot list and storyboards, doing some last minute tweaking of the script, talking to the actors...and then I'm going to do something crazy. I'm going to take it easy. Hang out at the pool with a few of my very best friends, have a few drinks, watch Jaws...bake some chicken. Then tomorrow I'll double check on Robert's prep work, go back over my stuff and get ready for the shoot.

Oh, by the by, saw Toy Story 3 and Karate Kid. They both definitely didn't suck.
