March 20th I flew out to L.A. contracted to shoot interviews for 2 days with one of my steady clients, Sara from the University of Kentucky. I'm not producing this project so I met the producer Stuart out there. Stuart came down from Toronto to work and man did we. We shot 6-7 45 minute interviews a day in the same room. Stuart and I pushed, pulled, remodeled and grabbed every possible look that room could have.
During the shoot on the last day I saw what seemed like a shadow of talons coming down behind our 24th floor curtain to the window. Then there was a thump.
When I investigated this is what I saw. A vulture. That stopped the shoot for a minute as everyone took picture and felt grateful we were inside and not out there with him
Just before flying back home I was able to catch up with an old friend and cameraman buddy Martin from the old news days in D.C. It was good to catch up.
