I'm ready for my close-up!
What a whirlwind! There were only four of them, two cameras, the sound guy, and the director - the producer ran the B camera. I built a little set in the middle of my living room and pretended to make a hat on it.
It was really fun, although for the first time in my life I was The Talent.
This was a strange experience - right when they showed up, I directed them around a little, Showing them where to put stuff and where to park, but then very quickly & clearly my role was to get out of their way until they were ready for me.
We spent the first part of the day with me and the dog doing laps of the alley on my bike - I can only imagine how ridiculous that part will look. It got tense at the end as we went into overtime but what fun! I can't wait to see it, but I'll have to - spring at the earliest. I'll know in January when it airs.
