Getting Bearings

February 10th, 2011 Comments Off

Zach here. I’m determined to return to our glory days of blogging. Lots of updates and lots of pictures.

Our first night in we were beat. It was 28 hours from old apartment door in New York to new apartment door in Buenos Aires. But when we finally made it, this was us.

And then we lugged all of our bags up to the front door of our new place only to realize that the woman who arranged for us to stay there, my past host-mom and future actress in this film, was nowhere to be found. And we had no phone. I ran around the block and found a by-the-minute phone/internet place where I grabbed her number from my email and gave her a call. No answer. I was getting ready to run down to her house about ten blocks away when I saw her come around the corner. Score.

We celebrated our arrival with the obvious/inevitable steak dinner. Nandan and I had some weird dish that put the Double Down to deep shame. It was sliced ham and mozzarella sandwiched between two rare steaks and drenched in marinara sauce, roasted peppers, and ham cubes, served over a bed of fried potato slices. Are you kidding me?

Since then it’s been a matter of getting settled, beginning to produce this movie, rehearsing, and going outside because it’s so fucking mild and enjoyable out right now. Nandan is juiced.

That was taken last night as we scouted “busy plaza”. Meanwhile, Sophia street-cast some candidates for “Rowdy North Americans”. We’re making good progress. Today was rehearsals and right now is a screening of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance at the museum. Get some.
