The Morning After

by on Jun.29, 2009, under General, Metal Sandwich

image Actually, it was two days after – the second day after the shoot, and the day after turning in our production.  As with many significant and intense life events, I experienced a bit of “post partum” depression – though fortunately not as great as I had expected or as much as I had after shooting my short Search And Recover five years ago.

First I walked down to the pond to drive the school bus away from it (the wheels simply spun at first, but I was finally able to drive it out of its muddy tire ruts).   Next I fired up the tractor, took out the trash, replaced the mailbox back to the road, shoved the Cadillac back next to the driveway, returned the air compressor and shop vac to the shed, picked up more trash and left plenty behind.  Then just like in the movie, I mixed up bottles and fed the calves, and turned the goats out.  After a couple of hours it was back inside to enjoy a cup of coffee and the thunderstorms that hung around all day.

It turned out to be a pretty quiet day, and you couldn’t tell that two days earlier the area had been swarming with a hive of busy people.  Part of me was reveling in the peace and joy of it all being over.  And another part of me was thinking about how to get started doing all over again.

    Stephen, I feel the same way after a shoot when you get to meet and work with a group of really nice cool people. I had a blast! Thank you letting me be a part of your team.
