We got the first scene of our new 102 show “Cakey” in the metaphorical can this weekend. It was my first time directing a.) strangers and b.) children (though they might object to being classified in this manner. I’d say “tweens” but that also is inaccurate as there were boys involved and I think “tweens” are only girls). I also had to fire one of my “tweens” for missing call over the phone… fairly heartbreaking.
It was 8:00 AM (after a late party in Queens the night before), outdoors, and freezing, but it was over in 2 and a half hours.
After the holidays the more intensive filming begins… I need to get scheduling. We need to find one location—a large bathroom with a bathtub—and get a prop made.
