Best Get

My well documented affinity for production minutiae got a real boost tonight with my discovery of the California On Location Awards. This is an annual award presentation, now in it’s 19th year, that acknowledges location professionals, specifically Location Managers, Assistant Location Managers (separate award just for Assistant Location Managers!) and Location Teams in film and television categories. 

Awards for JUST LOCATIONS PEOPLE. THAT’S IT. There is a mechanism in place to recognize and celebrate how difficult it can be just to have a goddamn place to go at 5:00 in the morning to make the movie. Just thinking about all the disgruntled neighbors, barking dogs, invalid 2007 W9s, working with people who only have land lines and fax machines- Can you IMAGINE the war stories that happen at this event??? Holy SHIT.

I love this. I am so into the fact that this exists. The real cherry on top though, is A) the really long description of the place where the award show takes place and imagining the pressure the person who booked the venue must feel with this crowd, and B) the fact that because LA Location Managers are in the Union, the Teamsters are one of three featured sponsors for the event. 

Well, here I am with some holiday cookies at Taylor Swift’s house. 
She’s right- I’m standing in Taylor Swift’s house right now, and I am telling you from first hand experience, I could not be cuter, and this day could not be more festive. And we are never, never, ever getting back together.
