Guess Who's Back?

I have computer issues and a lot of bigwigs coming to the day job, so it was hard for me to blog. I will just give a recap of last weekend's filmng on Tricks, which is directed by DeAara Lewis (I spelled it right).

Saturday, I Rod and I helped them film at the home of one of DeAara'a relatives. This guy named Keenon (not Nikita) filmed scenes oppostie DeAara. We also filmed in Crump Park. As usual, Rod made it look beautiful. It's good to have talented friends. Talented friends=leftover groupies, er, I mean, make you strive harder. Yeah, that's it! (I kid, I kid). We even used the dolly tracks and the dolly. I had to push Rod. That was nervewracking because I had to push at a nice speed, but not so fast that the shot wouldn't be steady. We pulled it off, though, and eventually we wrapped.

Sunday, I woke up at 4:30 AM. I set my clock for 5:30 AM. We shot at Precious Cargo all day. Shout out to DeAara's father, who plays the Mayor. He wrapped on Sunday. Also, shout out to Czharcus Jones, DeAara's sound man. The brother was on point! He is also a sound mixer, much better than I am. I assist Rod because I'm the only guy that seems to keep showing up. It was a relief to not deal with the infamous "boom pole". The lighting in Precious Cargo was another matter. Precious Cargo's a great location, but it's a little tricky in terms of lighting. Also, the big window at the top of the back room presented more problems. Rod and I pulled through. Shout out to LaDonna, DeAara's sisters, Raven and Deneka, Daphne, Keenon (from Saturday), and other cast and crew members. Special shout out to Jon "Sparky" Sparks. When you see him as Sebastian Crump, you will be floored. Sparky is rising to a new level of villainy. Shout out to his lovely wife as well. They are the most adorable couple. She also doubledas his makeup person and stylist. When she looked at him and said, "I'd marry you...again", I had to hold back an "AWWW!" Honestly, I want to be like Sparky when I grow up. We shot scenes in a limo that was parked outside the Cargo as well. It was a great day of filming.
