Happy Holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! 

Today, I am thankful for being able to spend Thanksgiving with my family for the first time in a very long time. I'm also grateful to have a few days off because I really needed the break.  Work's been exhausting and non-stop these past few weeks, but at the end of the day, it's still a job. 

Friends and family and good food and conversation are LIFE...and that is something to be very thankful for.

Solitude With Nature

Recently, I went to South Dakota to do some preliminary work for our filming there next month.  Although I had quite a bit to do, I welcomed the opportunity to bond with nature.

It's easy to get burned out while working on a film.  The hours are long, there's constant pressure and the work seems never-ending (and often is.)

That's why I appreciate the moments when I can stop what I'm doing and marvel at the beauty of the world around me... trees, fresh air, wildlife, and my own solitude.    Those few days were a nice getaway from production.

With the holidays coming up, I'm thankful that this film has brought me closer to the place where I grew up.  I'll get to spend Thanksgiving with my family which hasn't happened for quite awhile.  I get to hear the crunch of fallen leaves beneath my feet and witness the changing of the seasons which doesn't happen quite so dramatically for us on the West Coast.
