As the fourth of July passed, I couldn’t help but reminisce about last year’s hot, sweaty, 4th of July shoot. It was the first day filming PARKER & MAGGIE. Mistake number one: shooting on a day everyone has off, is partying AND there are fireworks. Sound was a challenge! Number two? Get a make up artist – especially when people’s faces are sweating off.
A year has past, and I’m all the more wiser. With that said, I’m bringing a new project to the table: WATER WITH LEMON.
Working in a restaurant can really suck the life from you. It’s downright demoralizing at times. I’ve literally taken 30 second breaks to cry in the bathroom, regroup, and get grounded. BUT I’ve taken the experience and turned it into the inspiration for this web series. The various bars and restaurants I’ve worked at over the past few years have served as inspiration. The people I’ve encountered, worked with, argued with, given attitude to, received attitude from, and wanted to punch, have been some of my greatest teachers.
Restaurant work feels like team sports. Everyone bitches about the work, the boss/coach, and the demands. But at the end of the team, the teams laughs about the struggles they endured together, and how NO ONE ELSE understands.
I want to bring to life the humor of that sentiment. And so was born, WATER WITH LEMON.
Please “like” on FACEBOOK to keep posted on the project.
And most importantly, help this idea become a reality. Become a backer on KICKSTARTER.
I can’t tell the story without your help, and I can’t begin to express my gratitude for those who’ve already supported.
