Today we are two months out from the first day of principal photography. There's a tentativeness to that outlook, to be sure, but it's growing less and less severe.
I'm working from home today, keeping quiet before heading to NY tomorrow. What I've been doing so far this morning is: watching the first scene of Inglourious Basterds to study the way it's shot, and the rest of the movie just because, reading Richard Brautigan's Trout Fishing In America, reading last month's NY Magazine profile of Toni Morrison, writing 83 e-mails, making minor preparations for the music video we're probably going to do right before we move out of state for production, only taking one phone call (a drastic change of pace), not changing out of my PJs, drinking two cups of pour-over coffee and watching this video repeatedly:
I have done none of these things consecutively. It's taken all six of my waking hours thus far to accomplish every one of these things.
