We’re still in Downtown Los Angeles filming.
Our lunch Thursday was at 5:30pm exactly so I decided to take my camera around and explore some evening traffic.
It’s popular to make jokes about having a 9 to 5 when you work in the film industry. It does seem nice to have a set time everyday that I can expect to get off. Tonight we expect to get off at midnight.
But when I see traffic like this, I know there is no possible way I could deal with it 5 days a week twice a day for an entire career.
Sitting in a car waiting, just so I can get home and do it again.
Every car I look at, it is always one person. No one seems to carpool.
On Sunday I found myself in Pasadena so I decided to take the new 501 Metro line over to Burbank. This is the first Los Angeles bus I have to been on and it was a great experience.
At the max there were 2 other passengers. It was quick, it was cheap, and it only cost $1.75. Public transit is a steal in Los Angeles, I guess because no one uses it.
While riding on the bus I was reminded about how nice it is to have someone drive you around. Even if it’s a public bus. To not worry about all the hectic drivers and the ever worsening parking around Los Angeles. It’s a nice breath of fresh air.
I have been using my new/ used Osprey Atmos AG 65L backpack recently. I picked it up at a REI garage sale for a great price. It came with a torn drawstring but it is all covered under warranty by the manufacture.
The great part about this pack is the AG. It stands for Anti Gravity. When you put this pack on the pack grips you, it’s a feeling I haven’t felt before with a backpack. It feels like a koala bear is hoping you around the hips!
It’s a great pack. I have yet to use it on an actual trail but I will be sure to write about it when I do!
I will be working again next week on a TV show so there will not be a video. I am still working on my video about how I got into the film industry. It’s a hard one for me to make because it is a story that spans 3 years that I am trying to fit into a 3-4 minute video.
It will be a good one!
