wrapping week 2, I got to head back to New York for one whole day before
heading down to Baltimore, MD for week 3.
home, I got to spend some time with my dog, Belle. This is a pic Tony
took of her and I. She's actually sleeping here. She tries to crawl
into blankets and sleep, but sometimes she hits a wall and can't go
any farther.When that happens, she just stops and falls asleep, but
never seems to notice that her butt is sticking out of the blanket for
all the world to take pics of.
our third week on Trenches, we would be shooting for 4 days in a bunker
in Fort Howard, and then 1 day in a studio. Our hotel was right across
the street from a giant Bible College, and we all really, REALLY wanted
to get Scott into the Alien costume to stand outside the door and pretend
to be the Devil coming for the student's immortal souls. But we feared
that the Bible girls might be packing heat, so instead we had to find
other things to amuse ourselves with.
one amusing thing we found. It's the hotel snack machine. We could forgive
the metal gate protecting it, but look closely at what's being sold.
In addition to the chips, candies and gum...
can get condoms, and cigars! Now that's a party hotel if I've ever seen
night we all headed out to a Dominican restaurant that Orlando knew
about. Here's Cat with Orlando's (very confused looking) son.

was right nearby, but we had a picnic area to use as our base camp.

hadn't met yet. It's Daz! He plays Verro, the Kuzaa soldier. Here's

in her combat ready killer costume! We did have one huge problem on
set, and that was the problem of too much free time for some people.
Certain teams were swamped all day long (wardrobe and props), and other
teams had free time (aliens and FX make-up). So to keep their sanity,
those groups would find ways to amuse themselves in the down time. And
one way was to dress the women up, put make-up on them, and then make
them pose for photo shoots.
