2nd week started and Will asked us to come with him to his home school's basketball team's championship match screening in Hollywood. So we went! They had a pretty strict dress code and security dude though, so the others got turned away. I got there in time for the 2nd half and that was perfect - it was just the right amount, I didn't get tired of it! And it was a really exciting game - in the last 2 seconds the other team scored the winning points!
After that we went to celebrate Adam's birthday at their house. We watched Up, played Mariokart and ate cake! It was a good time.
The animating life continued. We started building new puppets! And I went to a fraternity Rush event before the Tuesday class, not really knowing what to expect. I was invited to the closed dinner the next day and then for an interview the day after that.
I got to go to Fresh Produce that Wednesday too - a weekly drawing meet at Ackerman. And Thursday I went fabric shopping for my new babies!
Wrapping them up and getting started on costumes.
I got to speak to two lovely ladies too! It was real nice.
The next day I got a creepy letter pushed through my doorstep - my fraternity bid night invitation! It all feels very American...
And I got to sow my puppet costumes and the vintage pieces I bought in San Francisco! I was getting the machine back to our family friend the next day.
At night I went dancing with Evan and Daniela in Hollywood. It was a very weird place that mostly reminded me of a mix between a vampire's den and the Moulin Rouge - and the music theme for the night was the Smiths and 80s in general. It was great to get out and dance finally!
I got my hand-sowing done and then went on a film shoot all through the night Saturday. I played the quartermaster in our spy film! My very Kingsman-y set-up is seen above.
I shot a lot of the film! It was fun to be physically behind the camera again. And we edited it the very next day. I kind of underestimated how long it would take, so I was a little stressed with my school work. It was a good experience though!
I skyped with my parents and ended up just watching Danish television via their screen... #normal
And then I went to my first Westwood film premiere - Hunstman: Winter's War!
I went back and forward between a group from Bruin Film Society and my roommates - so I got to see different red carpet sights! It was an experience, but I was surprised at how small it all was. It was just a tiny little road that they had blocked off! Kevin had scored us actual premiere tickets too (to my roommates' envy), so I got to go and see the film in the theatre with the cast and crew. Very Hollywood!
