    No cameras. No pictures with cell phones. Phones completely off while on set. They want it very quiet on set.

    I forgot to ask...
    How was access to your car? Could you get to it quickly if you needed something?

    How secure were any personal belongings during your scene(s)?

    access to your car will be iffy, depending on how far the holding area is from parking. the people who brought changes of clothing brought them into holding and left everything there. holding area was locked down while everyone was on set and a staffer was present.

    Maybe I'll pack a garment bag. OTOH, I'm probably WAY over-thinking this. :lol:

    The reporter scene got pushed back to Sunday. Apparently, some wealthy church-goer extra was all wrong and they had to re-shoot that scene today.












    Kidding.

    I need Manton!

    Got another call today confirming my availability this Sunday. I was told to dress like a "Herald pool reporter". I asked just to be sure and was told it was a PRINT reporter and not a TV reporter. Apparently it will be in the fore enough that I will not be able to be an extra in any other scenes. Of course, further scenes involving the Herald pool will be an opportunity for me.

    So how does a newspaper pool reporter dress? I googled it.

    White House press corps. Those boys and girls are in suits, not sport coats.

    Pool reporters covering the President in Japan.

    Well, I've got a 7 A.M. call tomorrow morning. I figure I need to be out the door by 4:30 what with all the parking and checking in and such. Here's the wardrobe instruction for my group.

    I think I'm going with this look to meet their specs.

    This will be my backup only with a white shirt (or possibly yellow)

    More, later.

    Dude Idk where you live, but depending on distance you shouldn't have to leave anywhere near that early. Figure to arrive 45 early, including parking and toured fine.

    AACo. About a 20 minute drive in, given the hour and it'll be Sunday morning. That's still between 5 and 6. Can you tell that I'm freaking over this? :lol:

    The wardrobe guy changed me out of the navy blazer into my brown/ navy houndstooth that i brought as a backup because it seemed like a cliche. Lucky move on my part but he thinks it's totally too short for me. It covers my ass so I'm good with it. He needed to take a gander at his own shorty peacoat!
    Then he picked out the completely wrong tie but I'm just here to do what they say. No word on the PS yet. We'll see.

    Lots of sitting, waiting and walking so far.

    This reads like the diary of a teenage girl in the days leading up to prom, which is to say, awesome.

    Will it end the same way?

    No call back for me. :violin: I have a friend who was called and then told he wasn't needed. Congrats to Dig and JG. I just wanted the chance to say hello to Kevin Spacey. :cry:
