The week before and the couple of weeks since the Boston Marathon have been a whirl wind (it's weird how my life revolves around my sporting events..."before and after Boston..."). Anyhoo, it's been pretty crazy at work because we have been filming a TV commercial for the last week and a half and before that was the extensive work that went into the planning for the shooting of the commercial. I've never done anything like this, so it's been an awesome learning experience. I've learned that the TV/film business takes a lot of patience. We are filming two commercials simultaneously, each are going to be 30 seconds long. It took 4 - 12+ hour days to film basically 1 minute worth of tv time. I can't even imagine filming a 30 minute sitcom, let alone a full length film. Here are a few sneak peaks of the behind the scenes pics:
Hiking (would you believe this is Central Park?)
When you're in charge of the shoot, you can tell the talent that you'd like to see a shirtless shot (and they don't think you're a creeper!)
We should have the commercial on the air in less than 2 weeks, so I will post the finished product here when it comes out...can't wait!!
Oh and in completely unrelated news...did you see the royal wedding? More importantly, did you see his royal hotness at the royal wedding. Oh la la.
