So when my producer called me a few days ago and asked me if I wanted to be the director of Photography on a commercial shoot for the Atlantic City Ballet company I had no idea what I was in store for. Now several weeks later, after all the rental house calls, tech and location scouts, and countless amounts of hours spent pouring over depth of field charts, camera set up storyboards, and shot lists and several other things I don’t feel like listing, I can finally rest (for a week until I’m on a six day shoot up in north Jersey) for a moment. I can;t remember the last time I was this stressed and stretched over something and to be honest it was fucking amazing. It’s time spent on sets like these that really make me appreciate how much I love the field that I’m going into. I haven’t always had the support I needed but thats okay, because in the end its the sleepless nights, long ass days, and great crews that I work with that make it all worth while. Its a long and difficult career path and I certainly still have much to learn, but I wouldn’t give it up for anything in the world.
Yes. Yes it is.
I DO NOT FEED ON RAINBOWS
I FEED ON THE TORTURED BODIES AND SECRETIONS
OF A ONCE LIVING, BREATHING, SENTIENT BEING
MY STOMACH IS A GRAVEYARD
I AM THE BLOODMOUTH
I WILL SMOTHER YOUR MOTHER
IN THE FLUIDS OF HER UNBORN CHILD
I AM THE BLOOD MOUTH
NO LIVING BEING CAN QUENCH MY BLOODTHIRST
I SWALLOW MY ENEMIES WHOLE
ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE KENTUCKY FRIED
the best part is: WE EVOLVED TO BE THIS WAY. WE ARE KING SPECIES, RULER AND SHEPHERD OF THE OTHERS. YOUR DEATHS AND YOUR SALVATION REST IN OUR PALMS. Too bad we’re more opted to (senesless) death, though.
Or you know, you could eat BOTH.
Jesus fucking christ these idiots need to get through their thick fucking heads that we don’t just eat pure meat, we eat OTHER THINGS TOO.
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!
Now pass the ‘taters, please.
