Switching Gears

I spent the whole day yesterday trying to sort out the budget for %$£& Films. All of the budget and expense files for TC are in a million different files, so consolidating them and re-formatting them to industry standard was such a chore. I still have more to do today. It's amazing how much of the work that I do has nothing to do with what will be up on screen. It's frustrating.

I had this strange sensation while entering all of the receipts into Excel. As I looked at the dates, how much was spent and on what, fragments of the shoot drifted by my mind's eye. On this day, we ate at this place and that was the day that we shot X. It was sort of Proustian in a way.
