work.



POP QUIZ!!
you have job that is approx. 30 miles away. you have to be there at 9 am. your job is in beverly hills. to be at work on time, you must leave at: a) 6:45am b) 7:00am c) 7:30am d) 8:00am e) 8:15am
(answer below)

finally, found work that doesn't feel like "work." yesterday i worked as 2nd production assistant to photographer dave nagel and i had a blast!! the shoot was for a spike tv amateur modeling contest. i got to help set up lights, setup/breakdown equipment, take production stills, and be the model stand-in when the guys were testing the lighting. the crew was awesome, a lot of kewl people: dave (of course), tom (1st assistant/lighting tech), hal (digi tech), lisa (stylist) and i can't think of the makeup artist's name (doh!) but she was really nice too!! there is another shoot for spike tv tomorrow at dave's house with two different models where i will be doing the same things. i really hope dave could use me as a full-time assistant because he's a great guy and so fun to work for/with. there's also a possibility i could land a few jobs with tom if he ever needed an assistant. he was really helpful and easy to get along with... so hopefully he could use me. and now i met another potential photo buddy (hal) who is always down for impromptu amateur photo shoots. :) so glad dave gave me a chance!!

answer for pop quiz: a. 6:45 am... that's what time i have to leave my apartment tomorrow to be at dave's house!! california traffic blows... but i have some good tunes and tomorrow will be fun so it don't matta!!!!
