The Hollywood sign from the Dolby Theatre

I saw the Hollywood sign for the first time… and was totally underwhelmed. How do they make it look so big in all the pictures?! From HollywoodBoulevard – otherwise known as the Hollywood walk of fame. It is unfortunately barely visible. It also decided to rain on me. It must have known I was British! My colleagues tell me they don’t remember the last time it rained. How British of me – talking about the weather! That Being said, I will definitely miss the sunshine when I get back home!.

As a newbee to the city, I decided to be VERY cool and go to a Meetup group to meet some new people. For those of you who don’t know, Meetup is a website where people with similar interests create events to meet other people with similar interests. It’s a bit like online dating for friends. I had a lovely evening, chatting film, and two of the other attendees and I decided to meet up in a couple of weeks and shoot a short in a day. No time like the present! I’m very much looking forward to it.


Meanwhile at work – I am still LOVING the job. My colleagues are lovely, the company is great, the work is interesting and challenging. I’m a lucky girl. This week, the development producer and I pitched one of my ideas for a drama series to the head of the company. This was a new experience for me, so I was nervous! But low and behold, he would like us to develop it! Self high five! I need to star reading all my scrip writing books again… but I’m dusting my writing hat off, and raring to go!

20150726_201620635_iOSThe pinnacle of my week was my visit to the Raleigh Studios. I was like a little child going to Disneyland for the first time, I’m embarrassed to say. There were sound stages, and dressing rooms and trailers and it was all very exciting! I definitely didn’t go around the car park looking at all the famous peoples parking┬áspot signs… honest.
