Oh wow, I am so tired! Yesterday wasn’t too bad as we only had to be on set for 7:45, but today we had to be there for 6:45. I left around 3:30pm today and they were still going strong. Most for the crew are doing 14 hour days, which I don’t envy them for, and poor Elizabeth works on Saturday nights until 6am so she came straight to set with no sleep at all! I didn’t get much sleep either but that’s because I kept hearing noises and thinking someone was breaking into the apartment (they weren’t! I heard glass break but I think one of the neighbours was a little worse for wear as there was a bit of stomping around and banging of the front door too, ha ha). When we’re doing the makeup to start of with I don’t feel tired at all but once everyone is done and they just need the odd touch up that’s when I start to flag a little, but I stay alert enough to watch the actors at work embodying their characters and to see the production crew at work with lighting and camera positions, etc :-).
Apart from being tired I’m still loving working on this project. I feel so lucky to be able to experience it early on in my MUA training and career as I know it can be really tough to find projects to work or volunteer on, especially one as creative and fun as this one :-). The more scenes I watch on set the more excited I become about the end results. I’d love to share it with you all, and will as soon as we’re allowed!
