Cripes, does this not look like montecristobo?

Hey, at least I get to do Willow.

(Error: Faulty coping mechanism. User must discard or fake cheerfulness.)

A bit rusty on the CAD program, particularly since they made some changes to the user interface going from version 9 to 10 pro. And now they have a version 11 pro. Last night was primarily designing concrete blocks of the various configurations that I need, figuring out how to do them with 2D boolean operators (way cool!), and creating a block library. It means going back a step, but it clarifies the drawing considerably.
Of course it means I was up way too late, and I fell asleep in the shower this morning. For like a half-hour. How can I afford this rock & roll lifestyle?

Likely will spend this weekend doing concrete work, if the weather holds out. I need to get it done. And I need to design and build a couple of lighting fixtures that I can use in the hey-you-have-no-time-to-set-up-lights-but-we-need-this-to-look-perfect world of Stone Soup Films. Okay, to be fair, it's more an excuse to get my ass building a fixture that I wanted to build for some time, which is basically a modified chinese lantern or spacelight. The idea is to use some compact fluoroescent bulbs in it with several switches to be able to turn individual bulbs on or off as needed to make more or less light. Kind of a poor man's dimmer. The rig itself would hang from a boom that I could set overhead to give the right amount of soft light on a subject without appearing too obtrusive. It's something I've wanted for a while, because it's really versatile and looks great on camera.

The color correction is likely to be a bitch though. Compact fluorescents aren't generally color corrected, and they're a really sickly green. The correction for that is a magenta filter, which is really funny considering my history with unexplained magenta light sources.

This means finding more translucent white cloth, and likely some sewing. And I'd like to have these done before shooting the bar scene, because avindair wants a really quick in-and-out shoot. If I had more time, I'd set up some little kickers to accent things. It's a dark bar with a lot of little reflective stuffins, and a bunch of kickers would let me pinpoint things really well. I'm betting I won't have time, so I want to get the best lighting that I can in the guerilla atmosphere that I'm unfortunately getting used to.

Some time in the future, I will have the time to light scenes properly.
Sometimes it pays to do a random drive-by shopping.

Hancock Fabrics close to where I work is having a sale on a bunch of material, some of it 50% off. I was able to get 9-1/2 yards of bloack polyester poplin (perfect blackout material) 60" wide for $1.75/yd. I also picked up 14 yards of pure white polyester (perfect diffusion material) 60" wide, as I can never have enough.
I also got a few yards of poly silk which has a fabulous texture, and five yards of "costume satin" that was cheap-cheap. It's a tiny bit blue, not even noticeable until you put it up against the white.

I think I'm happiest with the pure white poly. That's enough for me to make a few LARGE diffusers in frames (think 10 x 10 feet) with relatively easy sewing.

A hundred bucks. In fabric. That I think is a low-point record for me, and considering what I got, I'm pretty happy.

Best wishes for lio, and keeping my fingers crossed. Because he can't, at least for a while.

You scored 9% Tough, 33% Roguish, 23% Friendly, and 33% Charming!
You are the classic rogue, a stylish rake with the devil of a wit and a flair for mischief, and you shake your martinis to waltz time. You are charming and debonair, but slightly untrustworthy, and women should be on their guard. If married, you are simply a bit of a flirt, even if it's just with your own wife...but if you're single, watch out. You usually rein yourself in to concentrate on one lovely beauty at a time, but with you, we never know. You're an inviting partner, but there's a playful devil behind your eyes, and those trying to get close to you should know they're playing with fire. You're stylish and fun, but you follow your own course, which may or may not include a steady gal. Co-stars include Myrna Loy and Carole Lombard, classy ladies with an adventurous streak.

Find out what kind of classic dame you'd make by taking the Classic Dames Test.

Only 33% charming? I must be losing my touch.
Update with Metro Title.

Tanya didn't call me back "within the hour". I just called, two days later.

They. Can't. Find. The. File.

"Tuesday at the latest."

Appatrently, "the file" is still located at the Bloomington office, which is closed. It's been closed for about a year now. And apparently having someone actually go to the bloomington office and get the file is a task somewhat equivalent to getting some of the old control rods from Chernobyl.
