I just finished two days of shooting for an industrial gig, and it was a fantastic experience.
Stereotypically, industrials can be dry affairs, sacrificing entertainment for information.
Not this one.
This thing was the unholy child of an "Friends" episode(ish) indie short and useful marketing collateral. In a good way.
Best part? Top to bottom, folks were phenomenal -- skill-wise and chemistry-wise. I'm talking Advertising agency, writer / director, DP, sound guy, clients, and content providers. Top-notch, good folks good at their craft.
And my fellow star Mikel McCurdy, totally steals it. Mikel and I have known each other for a while and done class, Samurai, and workshop intensives like Leadership & Creativity together. But this was the first time we were able to do a creative project together -- and we had a blast.
Great, witty banter, physical comedy, great crew, and a great scene partner makes for a great couple of days.
The finished product will be done this week, and show to a large trade-show crowd this year, so I'm pretty stoked to see how it all turns out.
This is one of those great-to-be-an-actor kind of weeks.
