Happy Holidays!

 I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago about (let's be honest I don't know what it was about) I was pretty hammered and woke up the next day and read it, as I do, and it looked like my 9 year old son wrote it after a couple of beers. So I deleted it. Those of you who follow me on Twitter may have noticed the disconnect, but nobody said anything so I didn't either. Anyway, I mainly want to say Happy Holidays to my brothers and sisters in the field of camera movement. I'm taking a couple of weeks off from my show and have gained about 8 lbs. I will be back on what I call the "Marvel Diet" on January 6th where I will resume eating cold chicken and soggy vegetables and will quickly lose the weight. This is not a reflection on the caterer at all, who is one of the best, but rather an indictment of the system we use on Marvel jobs to obtain nutrition. I would like to go on record now as saying that I much prefer this system (10 hour days with no lunch break) to the old 14 to 16 hour slog we used to do. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great holiday and a successful new year. For now let's forget about cranes and dollies and actors who never hit their marks and concentrate on family and big dinners and cocktails. All that other crap will come soon enough.
Till then,
Merry Christmas!
