I worked on Monday

I worked Monday night on a new TV show called Drive. The show will be on Fox and with premier in April. It was a great night of work. I worked from 6pm to 6am. I was pretty tired when I got home, however, I slept 14 hours last night and feel great today.

Jon's Stunt Reel

I edited together a stunt reel for Jon. This is pretty much only the stuff he did on Lost last year. We will continue to add clips to this as we do more work. It just takes time to get the footage of the work we do. Turn the volume up on your compter when you watch it (for those of you who know me I am sure you won't be surprised I used 80's music for his reel).

Yesterday Jon and I went to Disneyland because we could. We didn't have anything going on and we have season passes so we jumped in our car to go play. We had a great day. There were hardly any people there, the sun was shining and it was perfect.

Today is back to "work". January is historically slow for the movie business (at least that is what I hear) so for work we hang out with stunt people, go visit the sets that are working (mostly just TV shows) and read up on what upcoming movies are going go begin. It is nice to just hang out but honesty I get board real fast and am looking forward to my next adventure, what ever that may be.

My Car Hit

I have had many people ask me what show my car hit was for (except one person who emailed me when she saw my car hit because she watches the show. I won't name names but you know who you are :) It was for the TV show One Tree Hill that airs on what is now known as the CW (formerly the WB). It originally aired November 28, 2006. I forgot to tell you all to watch because I was traveling so much, so I called the production office and asked them to send me a copy of the episode. I needed it anyway so I can add the actual footage to my stunt reel (the footage in my stunt reel Jon took on our camera which I think is better than what they got).

Here it is:

Our First Screening

Jon had a screening tonight for the TV show pilot he worked on back in November where he played Teen wolf. It was great. We were hoping to find out tonight if the show got picked up but we didn't find out. We are not sure when we will know but hopefully soon.

It was fun to be invited to a screening. Stunt people aren't usually invited to screenings but because Jon was a stunt actor he was invited to watch. I met the director of the show and the other actors and they were all nice. It is fun to be on the ground floor of a show where no one is famous and everyone is just excited for the opportunity. (By the way the show was super funny!)

Robbed again...

This time it is not our new car it is my identity. I found out today that someone has been using my social security number in California for the past five years for work purposes. I had to go down to the social security office and prove that my social security number is mine. Bastards! I am so over people steeling things from me.

So let me just recap the last 18 months of having stuff stolen:
  1. We had $8,000 worth of stuff stolen when our car was broken into in Hawaii
  2. We had our car stolen
  3. We had another car stolen (the one we bought to replace the other one that got stolen)
  4. My identity
Is it just me or do we get things stolen more than most? Please let me know because if this happens to everyone that is just crazy.

Going Blonde...again

As with actors, when stunt people change their appearance it can have an effect on work. Until last August I had been a blond my whole life. I colored my hair last August brown so I would be not have to be wigged when I doubled Michelle and Evi. I have been missing my blond hair ever since and have decided to go back to being a blond. Before I took the plunge I talked to the very lovely hair people on Lost to see if it was ok. They said no problem and that they can use a mouse to darken my hair temporally when I work.

In LA you go to a colorist only, not just a regular hair person. So, I consulted my hair colorist (at John Frieda Salon in LA) and he said we have to do it in stages so I don't ruin my hair. I just finished stage 2 of three. I am finally starting look blond again (it looks a little warm still). Yeah! Once I am the color I want I will have to get new head shots which kinda sucks. However, blonds really do have more fun!

Headed to New Jersey

My friends who call me play the "Where in the world is Heather and Jon" game. I don't think I have been at my new place in LA for longer than 5 days since we moved in last October. Weather it is work or play or both we obtained a ton of frequent flyer miles this pass year.

Once again we are headed away for a week to the East Coast. I haven't been there since last January and I must say I am looking forward to some NJ style pizza. Really they have the best pizza ever. It is almost worth going there just for the pizza.

I am trying to set up some meeting with a few NY stunt coordinators to introduce my self. This is all part of being new in the business. It can be hard but so far all the East Coast guys have been great.

A New Car...Again

Last year I had two cars stolen, yes two with in two months of each other. Our last car was stolen in September and we have been in rental cars since then because we just couldn't decide on what car to get. We wanted something sporty but really didn't want to take the risk of yet another car getting stolen so we finally decided on a brand new Volvo S 40. It is red and super cute.

If this car gets stolen I think I will just ride the bus.
