"Go for Liz!" ...I'm still getting used to not saying that on the walkie anymore...and I'm still having 'ghost walkie' where I just constantly feel like there is a piece of plastic in my ear. Crazy to say, but my first full feature film is FINISHED! Hard to believe it's really over, even harder to believe that I won't be working with the same people day after 15 hour day. I can't express how grateful I am to have met the people I met on the crew, cast and locations. Everyone was so insanely kind, supportive and helpful. It was so comforting to be in a community where even if you f'd up REAL hard, everyone had your back and would offer you shots of whiskey in a green room that was actually a doctor's office. I mean that never happened..whuuuut.... Hopefully one (soonish) sunny day I will see them again on the other side...aka the west coast. But until then, more ramble:
YOU GUYS IT WAS SO HARD BUT SO MUCH FREAKING FUN...I THINK. I'm still kind of decompressing. Hot damn, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It would be too embarrassing to admit all of the mistakes I made...which were a lot...most of which I blame on sleep deprivation and Chick Fil-A comas...but I'm a better costumer because of it. And despite the fact I cried in my car almost every night that first week, I am so happy and thankful for an amazing first film experience. This job really opened the door for me to a world of career possibilities, and even though I'm SO much more confused than before, I'm excited to get the ball rolling.
Oh and my hand was in the movie. So basically what I'm trying to say is that I'm abandoning my career as a stylist and going to become a full time hand model/actress. Land of dreams ya'll, here I come.
