Saturday, February 23rd

I don't think I could have asked for a more magnificent birthday present than than the one I got the day before my birthday. There is something completely sublime about having the opportunity to work all day on a project (and I mean all day) with people who are there not for self advancement, not for personal gain, and not because they want something, but because they too love to revel in the act of creation. Because they believe that life should be more than making money or finding fame, but instead should be a roller coaster of collaborations with each turn adding just enough terror and relief to make the entire ride one huge epiphany.

Today I got to spend the day working on the Super Sekrit Project.

We shot for 12 hours, and it was glorious. I got to REALLY direct, and it felt fantastic.

Turns out there was no show in the space that night, so we got to take our time, making sure things were the way we wanted them instead of barreling through trying to get it done before a deadline.

9AM to 9PM. Ho. Ly. Crap.

Then we went and nabbed some dinner in El Cerito.

Then I drove back to San Jose and dropped all the equipment off at the studio.

Now I'm writing this. In 10 minutes I expect to be asleep.

Undying thanks go to cyranocyrano and walid_muffin for coming to play today. And I don't know that I would have gotten through it at all if it wasn't for melibabe's untiring efforts and ridiculous amounts of work... she really did the job of three different production crew members today, if not more than that.

For those of you dying to know what the Super Sekrit Project is, you'll know within 30 days, I promise. Probably a little bit sooner than that. But, to tide you over, I give you this:

Start counting down... :)
