Lights. Camera. Action!
Hotels. Drivers. Makeup.
Film crew. Me.
Which one of these things is not like the other?
Me of course. These things couldn’t be further from my daily life, but for one day, they were.
For one day, I lived a different life. The life of a jetsetter- flying across the country for a single day’s work. If you can count shooting a video as work, that is.
A whirlwind day of travel, prepping, and filming. For the first time I got a glimpse at the life of a celebrity- the behind the scenes side.
The producer asking the prompting questions. Repeating sound bites at different film angles to up the interest during editing. The moving still shots. The make up. The lighting. The improvising. The necessary silence. The external monitor and the rest of the on-looking team. So surreal.
Piece by piece portions of the video were filmed. I went first thing in the morning, leaving me without time for my nerves to grow and for me to question what I’d gotten myself into.
What I’d gotten myself into was a video shoot as a follow up to my first car story from Subaru post. What I’d gotten myself into was a day trip to the other side of the country. What I’d gotten myself into was meeting some of the faces of my ad network, Glam. After getting to know the team I feel even better about my participation in their network; it’s not just an invisible controller behind a curtain, it’s friendly, smiling, kind faces. This was an opportunity unlike any other and I’m so grateful and humbled to have been chosen to work on this project.
What a day out of the ordinary!
