Well...Season 2 is in the can as they say and we are ready for some vacation time!
Oops did I say that out loud....????
Hhmmm....well what we've also been thinking is that it's been an absolutely AMAZING season with our Gladiator Decorators and I am personally grateful to have been able to be the one from our department to interact with you all on Twitter each lucky day I'm here. Such great fans. Truly an amazing group you are!
This is a tight knit family here so it's sad to see everyone leaving. Although we're Gladiators first, we all still have families, summer adventures, vacations or just plain old R & R on a couch calling us. So off everyone goes.
A handful of us will be here wrapping the season up neatly in a bow for the next couple of weeks. And so...you'll still see me happily reporting from The Twitterverse as if I'm hanging onto a street lamp giving you details of an oncoming hurricane. (A nod to one of James' lines). So let's start with day one...
Walked the sets with the Lead Man today to see where we are on everything.
Ah, even the old umbrella stand in OPA has been cleared out and labeled. Have you ever noticed the umbrellas by the door? Which characters do you think might carry these two fun umbrellas?
Blue tape on everything. Blue painters tape is our friend. A very, very high tech way to quickly label things when they're going out. (wink) The crew can easily see what prop house everything is from. This same high tech method is used to label all of the rental pieces as they come off a set we've finished shooting each episode. Easy, quick, efficient.
Construction has gotten everything bundled up and inside the stages for now. Everything waits at the ready for whatever the next adventure may be.
Whatever that is it'll be just as amazing as this was right? Just imagine if you were one of those walls or one of those ladders....the things you would have seen and experienced this season on Scandal!
No, no, wrapping the season hasn't made me coo-coo banana crackers...pretending I'm a ladder...it's just a thought people. A light hearted thought on a heavy hearted afternoon.
Ok that's enough chatter for today. Remember - Don't stray too far from your interweb connection...I'm sure I'll have more to share with you in the next couple weeks! Stay tuned.
