The ultimate test

December 21st, 2008 ~ 10:15 pm

Whew! I made it through the busiest week I’ve had in a while. I figured if I could make it through then I can keep on going for this whole acting thing while still managing my regular job.

So it went like this:

Sunday –
12:30 – Audition
1:30-3 ish – shoot for a holiday video for Funbox comedy
__ – find out I had to rebuild 6 weeks worth of graphics in only 2 weeks for regular job.
__- panic a bit…. then get to work
6:00-midnight – shoot for Sauce on the Side webisode

Monday –
Midnight-4am – work like a fiend!
4-9ish – sleep
9-1:30 – work, less frenzied.
1:30 – leave for photo shoot and rehearsal for indie short
2:30 ish – find out others are stuck in traffic for at least an hour, reschedule…
3:30-8ish – work
9-1AM – Shoot for Sauce on the Side webisode

sleep!

Tuesday –
8-4ish – Shoot for Price of Progress (work on laptop between set-ups)
7-2:30AM – work until I got a migraine and lost too much vision to continue work. yay stress!

sleep!

Wednesday –
6AM – drive b.f. to airport. (go back to sleep.)
10-1:30 work
2:30-8:30 Shoot for Price of Progress (work on laptop between set-ups)
9-1AM work

sleep!

Thursday –
normal work day! at the office even! plus a little at home that night.

Friday –
9AM-9PM – Shoot for Price of Progress
9-1AM – finish the rest of the work of the highest priority!

Saturday –
8-9:30 – Photo shoot and rehearsal for indie short.
1-9:30 – Shoot for Price of Progress

Done!! Woo!

I managed to have my cake and eat it too. I had actually requested and been approved for vacation days for the shoot, but there was no way I could actually take them with the last minute changes they needed. It wasn’t too bad, it was just sort of exhausting. Luckily everything seemed to be fine with what I sent to my colleagues.

So yeah, I made it through. I can do this.
