More from director Nich...
6:00 am - First day of shooting today! We've had the first few days off to knock over the jetlag. I'm really excited - we've got a lot to get through so I'm keen to sink my teeth into it. I'm off to wake Charles now, I'll keep you guys updated.
6:04 am - Charles thinks we should be well rested for our first day, so he said to give him another twenty minutes and he'd be ready. Good point - we don't want him looking exhausted on camera.
6:55 am - Still no word from Charles, he's probably getting dressed.
7:30 am - Watching a rerun of Cheers. Great show.
8:03 am - So Charles just called, time to move on out!
11:34 am - Shooting outside of a public school here in LA, one line, should breeze through it.
12:59 am - Still at the school, Charles said he just needs to find the character. He's really method like that. Old-school.
2:26 pm - I think he just must be jet-lagged.
3:01pm - Wrapped the school! Took longer than expected but I think it's worth it. When he nails it, it's like watching DeNiro. Who Charles said he's also worked with, which is cool.
5:14 pm - Outside of the Hollywood sign - awesome! About to shoot a PTC (piece to camera).
5:15 pm - Out of tape.
5:58 pm - Got some more tape.
6:55 pm - Sun's going down, we need to hurry with this set-up. Charles says it'll be OK though, we can fix it in post.
8:30 pm - Charles and the crew are having dinner - I thought I'd push on and get some LA cutaways.
10:13 pm - Just got back to the hotel. I think everyone's actually gone to bed. I'm going to import this stuff and hit the sack myself.
3:59 am - Just finished importing. I'm a bit exhausted, but it's probably just the time difference. I'll record a quick video log and go to bed. Talk to you all later.
