17 Feb My February LA Adventure
I’ve been working in TV nearly 7 years, and have never made it to southern California for work. I’ve worked with a lot of LA-based production companies, dealt with the time difference for conference calls and had to listen to them gloat about the nice weather during the winter, but somehow never had a reason to visit for myself.
While our concept for this year is still top secret at this point, and really shouldn’t be discussed on an open blog, I can tell you that this was no easy project to manage, involving a 2 day shoot. But, it was a great opportunity to reclaim some of my “production” game and finally get to see the city that my business is built around.
My sole celebrity sighting (well, other than the Travel Channel talent that were there) was Brian Grazer, a big-time Hollywood producer for a TON of movies. (The DaVinci Code, A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, etc). He may not be flashy, but he’s a big deal to the industry.
After my few days in Santa Monica and Malibu were up, I took one extra day off for my birthday, and celebrated it in the Happiest Place on Earth- Disneyland! What a great time! I’ll post those pictures soon.
