Working on a movie crew can definitely be far from glamorous. By the end of our 15-hour days, I'm undoubtedly sweaty, hurting and exhausted. My feet hate me considering I stand for 14.5 out of those 15 hours. (I've made it a top priority to go buy some Dr. Scholl's this weekend!) And most of our weeks are 6 days. By our last shot last night, I looked around to see every crew member falling asleep where they stood. A few of us went for some beers once we were done, just to feel like life is a little more than just working and sleeping, but the party doesn't last very long after a week like that.
On the positive (and far more glamorous) side, Alisa and I will be heading over to a party at Tyrese Gibson's tonight. The cast, producers and select members of the crew were invited over for sushi and wine. Once again, I benefited from being the sister of the 2nd to get the invite. I of course want to go, but am a little hesitant. I have visions of walking in, the music scratching to a halt and someone asking, "Who invited the PA?" I did however get the personal invite from Tyrese's assistant and have slowly been winning Tyrese, himself, over; one pink starburst at a time. So I'm hopeful that scenario will remain solely in my imagination.
