OMATG Week 3 & 4

All through prep, I was working out at the YMCA almost every day and running a lot. Then I got runner's knee and stopped running for a bit but pushed myself even harder at the gym. Then we started shooting and I mostly only managed to exercise on the weekends and the rare days when we wrapped early or started late. But this Saturday, I realized I'd reached the point in the shoot where it was more important to simply nap. This is a prelude to my acknowledgment that: I've fallen behind in my accounting. We've been working too much, sleeping too little. There's a whole lot of movie happening and my body is officially bent to it.

This movie got nutty last week. It is goofy and wild and I have no idea if it will cut together the way I think it will - but I guess the important thing is that I think it will. Or at least am pretty sure it will. I'm putting all my faith in wild tonal shifts and hoping they amuse everyone else as much as they amuse me.

On to week five, which will begin on the edge of a very tall building and end on on a green screen. And then I'm going to run the Cincinnati Half Marathon and hopefully not die.
