I Hate Pilot Season/More Complaining
Sorry for the absence in posts. I’ve been feeling too downtrodden + lackluster as of late. Ohhhhhh, poooooor meeee. I’m going to call myself a waaambulance.
It’s pilot season. Bleeeeeech!!!! Pilot season!!! Ewwwww!!! Dreaded pilot season. Can you tell I HATE pilot season??? When you read the word HATE, try + feel the venom spewing out of my being. If you don’t know what that means, a pilot is a single episode of a sort of “test” show, that if picked up by a studio, eventually becomes a full-on television series. I’m on my third pilot of my career. Everytime I do one, I always say it’ll be my last one. You want to know why?! Because they suck!!!! Everything happens really really really fast, it’s demanding, the production doesn’t know what they’re doing + act like gross chickens with their head cut off, hours are brutal + pay is low. Tonight I’m going to work at 4pm + probably won’t come home till 7am Saturday morning.
Why am I doing this? I’m only participating in this torture because the entire costume department are my buddies. Peer pressure? I’m famously known as huge sucker for peer pressure. I can’t say no. Well, at least we’re all tortured together. Friends that are tortured together, stay together, as I always say. It’s set in the late 70’s – here’s a couple pictures I took from the set dressing.
I bet all of you are like, “Where are all the pictures of the costumes?”. Good question. I think because I’m so sick of looking at clothes + shoes that it makes me want to vomit. Our department is literally bursting with all the clothes. I’ll try + get it together.
Haha! Look at his crazy mad scientist hair! He’s so cute! Why the thumbs up? Behind him in the costume department is shelving that he drafted up, + the construction department built.
Well, after this cursed job is over, I’ll be rejoining him in Canada on the first weekend of April! I can’t wait!!!! It’s the only thing that keeps me going!!! Whoopeeee!!!! Hope everyone’s well!!!
