I fell into a conversation with a Torontonian while waiting in line to get inside O’Hanlon’s. She never heard of the Roughriders and she asked about how safe Regina was. I should have called her out right there, but instead I explained that Wednesdays are ‘Steal your wallet Day’, Thursdays are ‘Stab Day’, Fridays are ‘Drive By Shooting Day’ and Saturdays are for murdering non-residents.
Once inside I saw Courtney who was peddling Guiness products. She gave me a free hat and a fake tattoo. Soon after, a pipe band marched through the place and took the stage. I recognized Meg as one of the drummers. Everyone was crammed together sharing the moment together, raising their glasses. St. Patty’s day in O’Hanlon’s!
Afterwards I headed over to the exchange to watch Combat Improv with some of my theatre friends (and the cast of Medea). It was a really good night.
Earlier, I spent the day in the edit suite coming up with a roadmap for the Dracula Demo with Java Post. I gave them 15 scenes to get started on, leaving 18 unclaimed as of yet. We also agreed to work in a new format, which resulted in me having to up-convert all the raw footage to Apple ProRes 422HQ from DVCProHD 1080 60i. I can’t believe I didn’t think of that before now!
Today will be a day to prep and shoot the final scenes needed for the Dracula demo. We’ll be turning the office into a studio space and hanging the green screen. I also need to come up with a formal shot list (everything is in my head at the moment). With a little luck, I may also have time to pick away at a couple of scenes in the edit suite.
Another day of progress. Hopefully no one gets stabbed.
