We left Montreal early(ish) this morning, hoping to beat the storm front before it rolled into Ontario. And we almost made it. About an hour out from Toronto, we were blanketed – first snow, then rain. It made things interesting – and a lot slower – but we eventually arrived, safe and soaked.
Awaiting for us back at our T.O. place were a couple of boxes c/o Akemi’s father in Japan. Before leaving for the holidays, we sent him a nice warm Christmas coat –
Clearly thrilled, he sent Akemi a little something to combat the winter chill. Warm pants, tea, and a lifetime’s supply of hot pockets:
Well, we’re all settled in. The dogs are napping, Akemi’s surfing the net, and I’m watching football, perusing some of the photos of our last couple of days in Montreal…
One more day of R&R and then it’s full-throttle prep as we speed toward the commence- er, the, uh, “cameras start rolling”. Some of the upcoming highlights, according to the quadruple goldenrod prep schedule, include cast costume fittings, production meeting, a playback look-see, a post-production work flow discussion, hair/makeup/camera tests on set with the cast, a tone meeting, and the cast read-through.
And it only gets busier from there!
