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!
The 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 spot signs… honest.
