Two Productions at Once

I am juggling two productions this week and it's blowing my mind. I am wrapping out of one production during the day and prepping another one to start on Tuesday. 

I spent the day calling vendors and ensuring we are all settled up as we are wrapping. I then come home and have a long production meeting for my next production. 

I should also mention that I am in post on another film and prepping a short film for early August and casting another for next year. Insanity? Probably. 

When it rains it pours. And it's a good sign that people's spirits are rebounding a bit and feeling better about the state of filming. So I'm riding the wave and loving it. I'm also writing a film and almost done with the first draft. I'm happy.

I don't recommend doing 2 productions at once but I do feel immersed in filmmaking, which I love. I am a workaholic so I'll survive. 

So back I go to wrapping in the morning and filing for permits in LA for the other one! Oh and I am filing an insurance claim on yet a third -- that is a whole other story.

Hum... Sorry to say this but I'm not sure "workaholic" and "survive" are going well together.

If you do what you love, that's great, but you still need sleep and recreation.

Please, take care of yourself.

Don't worry! I'm heading to Paso Robles on Friday for some R&R! Even though I have a lot going on, I do make time during the madness to get away and to sleep. As you say, that is very important. I'm going to write a little more about this because this is something all producers contend with. Juggling tons of work with rest. It's all about priorities. Thanks for the comment!
