Well, I’m 60ft up in the air, give or take 20ft. I’m manning an 18k light for a night shoot. It’s lonely, windy, and buggy up here. I don’t really have any thoughts right now but I’m bored, so I’m writing. Oh well, sure would like a drink.

The bugs are much worse this time. We took a “lunch” break (Johnny Carrino’s) and I got to come down for a bit. Now that I’m back up in the high seat, the insects are unbearable. I had to put up the mosquito netting (not an easy thing to do at 60ft in the air). I sure hope they’re happy with the light the way it is now, it would take a bit to get out of the netting to change anything..

Joe Jackson (the effects & pyro man) passed out from heat exhaustion. The PA’s tonight are getting a crash course in pyro effects.

Mike Norris is a bit too controling. I can totally understand knowing what needs to be done, and wanting to get done in less time, but he undermines both Alin and Hamid’s authority.

Joe’s back up and moving. That’s a good sign.

Whoo, I’m getting pretty tired. I’ve got my radio right next to me; I might be able to shut my eyes for a few minutes…

My little nap was nice but it needed to be longer. I’d love to have some of the coffee but I don’t want to be a bother. I’m pretty content to just sit up here quiet and alone. Maybe another quick nap…

I’m going to have to make note somewhere of the new things I’ve done on this shoot, including crane operator (Snorkelift). I got to pan the light a bit, the fun never stops.
