At lunch time today having made RECORD time from Bristol, WonderJen and Ben our grip arrived along with Maddy the collie. We did a bit of catching up and a couple of recces - including to Zoe's flat where we turned up 35 minutes early! Man I knew my tactic of convincing myself my appointments are 30 minutes before they are actually scheduled to counteract my chronic lateness would backfire one day! Sorry Zoe.
Next up Jen (our art department) arrived - after being kept waiting in Manchester for two hours by the eBay seller of our wedding dress! She has brought loads of fab props and costumes and I'm really looking forward to the costume fittings tomorrow - (actually technically later today).
Finally it was trip to Newcastle Airport where Lucas McNelly was flying into from Seattle as part of his A year Without Rent project - it's REALLY cool you should check it out - oh and donate to him via PayPal to keep him on the road!
Tomorrow the rest of the crew arrive and we get to do two more recces and have costume fittings and a production meeting. We're supposed to have a read-through too, but i don't see that happening.
Still waiting for tow more Amazon deliveries - hope the come tomorrow (well today) or we're a tad fucked.
Special thanks must go to Dawn Dawnie - who is very generously housing my o
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
