That’s Michael Gross. He’s our producer. We’re making award show videos. It’s 1:16am. Chris Adams asked for a sizzle video. It’s turning into a fizzle video, which is why we’re still here at 1:16am, will be here far longer than 1:16am, and why Michael Gross, our producer, is facing AWAY from the screen, reading a magazine and cuddling with Penny. Can you blame him?
When we entered this makeshift edit bay at noon today, it was immaculate (well, as immaculate as any room at this agency). And now it is filled with sleeping animals, abandoned articles of clothing, discarded carryout boxes of food, more sleeping animals, whining girls, a random fallen peach gummy wrapper in the hallway outside (how did that get there?), a paper trail of changing notes and a little bit of buzzing in our editor’s ear while directing her work over her shoulder all up in her grill. Bah! Just one moment of lali surround think where we both simultaneously thought that even though the font size on that title card was larger than the rest maybe we should actually enlarge it EVEN MORE instead of making it smaller. That’s cuz we think big, people!
Needless to say, we are slobs. Slobs with a video that instead of sizzling is fizzling, just like our energy levels.
Now back to frame ****ing. Party on.
la la la la late!
PS We thought we were going to work late concepting (which we obviously haven’t gotten to yet) so li thought she may have a sleepover at my house so she didn’t have to drive all the way back to Long Beach. It looks like now we may be having a sleepover at TBWA\Chiat\Day and Night instead…
PPS li got a head start on that sleepover while we finally started on edit option 2 shortly before 1am. Look familiar?
