While Working on an Overnight Shoot for a Hectic 48-Hour Competition, the Lack of Sleep is So Severe I’m Woken Up with a Post-It Note on My Face that Reads, “Nevermind. We Shot the Scene Without You.”

I had my eyes closed for TWO SECONDS, honest!

You Know you’ve Worked in Film Too Long When…

1.  You use phrases such as “Stand By”, “Copy That”, “Flying in____” in everyday situations.  You even catch yourself saying, “Hot Points” when walking with a cup of coffee.  

2.  You find out there’s gaff tape stuck to your shirt—after someone points it out in a restaurant.

3.  You insist on adjusting the framing, lighting and design of the room you are Skyping someone in.  

4. You forgot what your regular sleep schedule is.  It doesn’t exist anymore.

5. You really, really, really wish you hadn’t left so many things undone at home when the shoot’s wrapped.

6.  ”Oh hey, welcome back to Earth.  Where have you even been?” is something just about everyone says to you, after the project is completed.

7.  YOU SLEEP FOR A WEEK AFTER IT’S WRAP.
