Any TV show presents its challenges due to intense scheduling and frantic pacing. To put this into
perspective: Six months is the amount of time usually allotted to complete shooting of a feature film. The average finished film is about 2 hours (from a script of about 120 pages) In TV, you don't get the luxury of that much time. Every day, TV productions shoot more than double the amount of script pages as films. Everyone's gotta be on their toes at all times and the finish line always feels so far away. We only shot an 8 episode season for the TV show I worked on but that equates to roughly eight hours of footage by the time the public sees it on screen. And each script is 60-70 pages long.

And that last job? I met some terrific people, many of whom I miss seeing on a daily basis.
I'll also miss the purple blossoms on the tree outside my office window at the studio. Whenever I was at my most stressed, I would take a deep breath, stretch out my arms and gaze at that tree for a few moments-- it reminded of the simplicity and beauty of life--- the exact things I'm able to enjoy up close now that I have the time for them.
