My IMDB page

Rather than try to fill you in on what I have done as a Script Supervisor I want to share my IMDB page. This is definitely not a complete list of all the projects I have worked on but it’s a good start. This is an ever updating list and I will continue sharing what I am up to long before it appears on IMDB.

Just for fun here’s a few random photos from different shows.

First week at Entertainment tonight and The Insider

20120824-093154.jpg

20120824-093914.jpg

So I just finished my first week of training on Entertainment Tonight and The Insider. I don’t usually train to work on a show, but this is different than most shows I work on. The cast and crew of both shows are wonderful and I am so happy to be a part of their team, even just for a few weeks!

This feels much more like an office position than I am used but it’s a very nice break from my normal of driving different places everyday, spending all day out in the sun, and running around with my clipboard and script notes. Plus it’s really incredible to see how a daily show like this comes together everyday!

Thanks S. for hiring me!! I’m so glad to be a part of the team!

These are just random photos of the backlot. I love backlot offices that look like houses!

The Run … Off my chicken coop

20120824-084724.jpg

20120824-084736.jpg

I realized I had not posted any pictures of the run off the coop! So here is how I have it set up right now …

20120824-085149.jpg

I have the roost bar in there just to see if they will use it. Also to see if the like the PVC more than wood, since the coop has a wood roost in it.

Here’s more of my silly (not so little anymore) chicks.

I don’t have many good photos of Lucy and Ethel since they never seem to hold still but Starla is a ham.

20120824-090249.jpg

Here’s Starla and Echo, durning the day they seem to always be face to face …. Echo wants to play with the chickens sooo badly, to bad she would play to rough. I hope to get her trained to the point they can all be free in the yard together with no concern.

I would love to hear about and see how you set up your coop runs!! Please feel free to share.

What a Script Supervisor does

So when I first started this blog I said I would explain what a Script Supervisor does and I realized I have failed to do that!

20120821-135955.jpg

I learned to script supervise from the late Robert Gary in 2005. He was an incredible man that had an amazing career. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from him.

So here is what I do:

1- Create a log for the editors and assistant editors to use when cutting the media together.

2- Make notes on the script page to show what has been covered and how much coverage there is.

3- Work with the actors to get the dialogue as close to the script as possible. And help track dialogue changes from the writers.

4- Supervise all of the continuity. (ie: correct clothes, correct props, etc)
But most especially the continuity within the scene.
(ie: what the actor/actress is holding, when they stand, when they take a drink, etc.)

5- Provide the scene number for the camera and sound departments for the slate (aka Clapper).

6- Provide the editor with notes from the director. (favorite takes, what shot the scene should start with, etc.)

This job holds a lot of responsibly and great attention to detail. It certainly isn’t for everyone but I love it. The hours can be brutal, our standard day is 12 hours but i have worked anywhere from 6-23 hour days!! This week I am only working 8 hour day which feels weird and short, But It is really nice to be able to work and have a life at the same time.

I’d love to answer your questions about what I do and this crazy business! Ask away.

Little chicks in their new home and some questions for fellow chicken keepers!

20120817-222918.jpg

My little girls are approx 6 weeks old now! They are growing so fast.

I finally got the coop moved to its final spot which took 5 people since we were dumb and built it on the other side of the fence. We had to lift it up and over the fence. The neighbors came and helped my roommate, Eddie, and I move it. I bought everyone pizza and beer as a thank you.

20120817-223451.jpg

Okay so here is where I really need your input!

From everything I have read when your chicks move to their coop they need to stay inside for two weeks not let into the run, so there learn where home is. Also to aid in them learning to go back in as evening falls, so I don’t have to go shoo them in every night.

It has been so hot here in southern California the coop seems too hot durning the day, so I have been opening the run door for them. By noon the first day in the coop they were ‘panting’ and had their wings half spread. I took this to mean they were too hot. What is you experience with this?

They have learned how to use the ramp and come and go from the coop to the run as they please. The first night they didn’t put themselves away, they huddled in a corner at the bottom of the ramp and I shooed them in. In the days since when I see they are all in the coop and it’s nearing evening I just close the door. Though I did still have a night where I came home late and one was still down in the run. I have cut extra vents in the coop to aid ventilation but I do not want to cut to many and make the coop drafty. I also have kept their brooder light in the coop until their feathers all Finnish coming in, but it’s only on after I close the run door. What have you found with your chicks learning their new coop and learning to put themselves inside at night?

20120817-224921.jpg

Here is the other area I need input, aside from the pic below where Lucy is trying to walk onto the top of the door my little chicks haven’t really shown a desire to roost. They have the wood roost in the coop. Could it be to high for them? Or maybe they need a ramp?
I have also put a 1/2 inch PVC roost bar in the run ( pics shortly) and they will hop over it but don’t stay on it.

20120817-223523.jpg

That’s all for now! Overall my girls seem happy and healthy and that’s all that really matters. I definitely appreciate your input and I would love to see your posts about your chickens!

Lindsey and I make pesto together often, we LOVE pesto. On this day i had gotten a ton of fresh dill from my CSA box so she made a dill, spinach, basil, goat cheese pesto.

Here’s what’s in it-

Basil (from my garden)
Spinach
Dill
Pine nuts
Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Sea salt
Lemon juice

After it was made in the food processor, she heated it on the stove with-

Backyard Veggie Garden Update # 8

So I have been very bad lately about updating everyone on my garden. I finally had time to give it some TLC and take some pictures to share!

20120817-142951.jpg

Here’s where we are at!

Corn and tomatoes, plus carrots there at the bottom.

Silly little chicks

My little pullets finally have names, this is Lucy and Ethel. And my little Barred Rock is Starla.

20120817-090736.jpg

Last week my chicks turned 5 weeks and were quickly outgrowing their brooder, I knew it was time to move them to coop. But the day before I moved them I wanted them to get an hour or so in the yard.

They cracked me up, their personalities are already so strong!
Lucy and Ethel don’t like being apart, well I should say Ethel hates being away from Lucy. She started calling out for Lucy when she cannot see her. They are ridiculous.

20120817-090815.jpg

20120817-090901.jpg

When I first brought them out they ran around in a group with their wings half open, their beaks open, and clicking their tongues. This was new to me.

20120817-091231.jpg

20120817-091330.jpg

The funniest thing to me was that Lucy kept flying up to me and wanting to be in my face.

That’s all for now, tomorrow I will share their move to their new home.
