Zach here. It’s a grueling 10:55 in the morning. Last night was weird.
I’m going to shatter this dry spell with an account of what in the hell we’ve been up to. On Tuesday morning, we woke up in Austin fifty minutes in advance of our bus out of town. It was a close call. This ride clocked in at a grueling thirty-six hours. Wednesday night we rolled in to Hollywood, CA. Our host, Dave Ferino, lives with a huge gaggle of bros in an outrageous antique mansion in the hills allegedly built by Charlie Chaplin for Mary Astor way back when. With no reasonable form of transportation, we’ve been spending a lot of time here. The house makes its acting debut this afternoon, so I’ll hold off on sharing photos until then.

Thursday night, we wound up out at dinner with old-fashioned Texan gent-turned-actor Ben McCain. We had been planning on giving Ben a role in the film, but our schedules didn’t align and it fell through. At dinner, we all brainstormed and came up with a scene we’d be able to shoot that night. We finished our meal and went right to work. Ben knocked it out of the park. It was great.

Yesterday (Saturday), we spent the entire day with rowdiest ten year-old I know, my cousin Ben Rosen. Our locations included In-N-Out Burger, the entrance to Disneyland (actually going inside was beyond our budget), and the Santa Monica Pier.

Today’s an important day and we’re all hoping not to blow it too hard. Still, we know that some level of blowing it is inevitable. It’s really our only opportunity to shoot here on account of we’re heading north tomorrow for the start of Cinequest in San Jose. I leave you with a new piece of promotional art by Dusty.
