Actually, we wrapped about three weeks ago.
So for about three weeks, I went through what I imagine are the typical stages of post-thesis-film-principal-photography-wrap trauma, from "I'm done... Now I can finally sleep" to waking up the next morning wondering, "When was the call time?" to having a sudden revelation at a Thai restaurant, thinking, "OMG, I need to reshoot the whole fucking film," then accepting the outcome and consoling myself, "I did the best that I could" and then yesterday, realizing... "Shit. I actually have more work to do on the film."
But most of all, and please brace yourself for momentarily upcoming cliche... I was thankful.
I was thankful that when I felt like squatting in the middle of the set yelling "I don't want to do this anymore!," there were people around me. So I was thankful for the people.
And I like people.
That may sound odd to those who know how stubbornly unsocial I am. Just ask my producer and good friend Mike, whose two dozen parties I missed over the last couple of years. But I really do like people.
And for someone who hasn't been able to figure out how to generate a casual conversation in 29 years of his life, it was quite pleasant to be around and interact with people. Moreover, good people.
So endless thanks to the people that were involved in the film. Cast, crew, and people who just dropped by to say hello.
This blog is more of me talking to myself than people actually reading it, but still, for those who may stumble upon it...
Production stills to come...
