I haven’t been posting very often on my blog, for several reasons. One, I’ve been much busier than I ever have been before so I just haven’t found the time to sit down and write. Two, I’ve been working on a lot of projects that aren’t mine and therefore I can’t talk about them. Three, I’ve been meeting a lot of great people in LA but they’re also people I cannot talk about.
Because of that, which isn’t a complaint, I’m insanely lucky to be in the position I’m in now, I’m going to wind down the blog. I’ll be posting even less often than I have been lately and when I do post, it’ll probably be extremely vague.
Also, pretty sure the handful of people who checked out the blog once won’t really miss it.
By the end of 2013, I had done enough work and met enough people that I felt comfortable making the move from Chicago to Los Angeles. I was able to set up an incredible job opportunity in LA from my time working on Jekyll Island.
I’m leaving tomorrow morning, driving out by myself and should be arriving Monday evening. I’ll be crashing on the couches of some friends for a few weeks at a time until I get my own place set up.
Can’t wait to get out there.
Even though my contest entry for Doritos Crash the Super Bowl contest didn’t win anything and received a mixed response, I wanted to do another one. So I came up with an idea and got together with Matt and Kyle to make it. They put in so much work, especially Matt on the VFX side, and I think it turned out really well. James Griffin came out to act in it, and Becky asked a friend from work if we could use her daughter, who was adorable and did a great job. Unfortunately, we yet again did not win anything but I’m still proud of the video. Check it out here: https://vimeo.com/81937586
Over the last couple months, I’ve been working on a low-budget feature film called, A Conspiracy on Jekyll Island. It has an amazing cast and it was a great experience. Very long hours, lots of work, and no pay, but it has been worth it. I don’t want to write much more because I signed an NDA but it has been totally worth doing and the cast and crew have been some of the best people I’ve ever worked with. Can’t wait to see the finished movie.
The past month has been almost nothing but working basically full-time on Transformers 4 and it has been insanely hard but incredible, nonetheless. Obviously I can’t write much about what I’ve been up to but it was a lot of fun. I got to work more closely with the crew since these mostly weren’t huge lockup days. Typically, there were only eight or ten PAs on set. Probably the best production experience I’ve had so far.
And to top it off, I was lucky enough to get invited to the wrap party. It was a great way to say goodbye to the people I met because most of them were from out of town and I may not see them again for a long time. The best part though? I was able to get my picture taken with Michael Bay, so, that was probably the best thing ever. Not every day you get to have your picture taken with one of your biggest inspirations. I’m extremely grateful to the guys who gave me all these extra days on set.
