Wrapping Up

Today, check out meeting, picking up my dad at the airport, cook out.

Tomorrow, HPW Premiere.

Wednesday, MPP screening, final banquet.

Thursday, trying to find a place to keep my car for May.

Friday, see Thursday.

Saturday, coming home.

I found a place to live (most likely). It's in North Hollywood in a 2 bedroom 2 bath. My roommate is an LAFSC alum from last year. I'm supposed to meet up with him this week to discuss the details.

My last day of class was yesterday, my last day of my internship is today. I hope something crazy happens.

Another day at "The Office"

Yesterday my supervisor took off work and one of the producers was out of town so I was the lone assistant for the other producer. I answered phones, covered a script, and fixed the e-mail when it was down which included waiting on hold for an hour. I think I did a pretty good job.

One of the phone calls I took went a little bit like this:
Me: Mr. Mudd
Them: Is this Kyle?
Me: No, this is Peter the Intern
Them: Hello Peter the Intern, this is Jenna Fischer


I was writing down the info like it was a regular call so I wrote down Jenna Fischer, looked at the name and thought "I just watched your show last night." That was the highlight of my workday and would say it was the highlight of my day until...

I went to the Grove to see Forgetting Sarah Marshall at 8:15 but it was sold out so I bought a ticket for the 10:05. I went to Borders or Barnes and Noble, I forget which is at the Grove, to pass the time. My roommate Ian called from the movie theater and said he just saw "the main guy" from Sarah Marshall. I ran to the theater and staked out the lobby. Sure enough, minutes later, Jason Segel and another guy come walking out towards us. When he got close I said "Hey, uh, Jason." then we chatted for a second. I told him we were about to see his movie and he introduced us to the guy he was with who just happened to be Nicholas Stoller, the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall.


The movie was really good by the way.

My screenplay is finished. If you would like to read it I can start sending it to people in a week or two after I get notes from my teacher. Here's the pitch:

Suicide Watch is about Charlie, 29, a failed screenwriter working at Popcorn Movies, the local movie rental store. He wants to kill himself but his coworker informs him that he has to put in a two weeks notice before he can quit. Being the perfectionist he is, Charlie decides to spend his last two weeks planning his own death by getting advice under the guise of a screenplay he wants to write. Then he meets Holly, a beautiful suicide hotline operator, who might make him change his mind.

Jasper is now getting the final audio edits it needs before the premiere on April 29th. I'll hopefully have some screen shots of that soon. It looks really good.

Jasper is being edited and will be done pretty soon.

My screenplay is almost done.

My semester is winding down pretty well.

I'm going to check out a place in North Hollywood in a few minutes where I'm probably going to live. Nathan, the administrator here at LAFSC, is moving out of his place and I'm probably going to move in with a recent LAFSC alum.

I saw Demetri Martin at the Farmer's Market yesterday.

Funny guy.

I'll be home for three weeks in three weeks. Cheverly Day, Graduation, Ashlea's Party, etc.

My shoot was really hectic and crazy but we got some really great stuff. We didn't have enough extras but I think we faked it adequately. Our rough cut is coming along great and we're going to watch it tomorrow.

Today at my internship I met this guy:

He was really nice.

I also talked to Terry Zwigoff (Director of Ghost World and Bad Santa) on the phone.

I have a little over two weeks to finish my screenplay so I think that should be enough time.

Only a couple more weeks until I come home for a bit.

Sorry I haven't blogged in a long time. Hopefully I will have awesome production stills after this weekend.
