Lights, Camera, Action!

So Tuesday was the climax to the past 2 months. We filmed our show in the studios and it went amazingly well.

But it was the most intense day and night of my life.

I got in to work at 0800 and headed down to our make-shift Production Office in the studios and from 0815 until 2300 I swear we did not stop. Production is the first port of call for ANYONE so we were basically bombarded with queries, request, complaints and demands for 15 hours.

Not to mention the constant ringing of phones.

Reception isn't the brightest tool in the shed.

Ringing of phone

Miss M: Hello Production office

Reception: Hi, I have so and so downstairs

Miss M: Is there name on the list that I gave to you earlier?

Reception: Let me check. No.

Miss M: Then they need to go to door blah blah

5 minutes later

Miss M: Hello Production office

Reception: Hi, I have so and so downstairs

Miss M: Is there name on the list that I gave to you earlier?

Reception: Let me check. No.

Miss M: Then they need to go to door blah blah

5 minutes later

Miss M: Hello Production office

Reception: Hi, I have so and so downstairs

Miss M: Is there name on the list that I gave to you earlier?

Reception: Let me check. No.

Miss M: Then they need to go to door blah blah

I swear after the 5th time I wanted to murder them. And it went on for about 4 hours.

However throughout the day and night I

1) Peed in a stall next to Emma B and Geri from the Spice Girls

2) Directed Richard Branson to the exit

3) Got smiled at by Kevin Spacey

4) Got winked at by Russell Brand

5) Saw McFly, Dame Shirley Bassey, The Prime Minister, Michael Caine, the Olympic Gold Medal winners of the UK, Jason Donovan, Ronan Keating, Gordon Ramsey, Rachel Stevens and too many other minor English celebs to remember

It really was a night I will never forget.

More stories coming!

Hang on, Kevin Spacey? He is one of my favourite actors.

I think your job sounds really stressful, but there definitely are some perks!

Kitty Cat said...

Wow, that sounds soooo exciting! I'm jealous! And I agree with Po, I love Kevin Spacey! I would also love to meet the Spice Girls, or just see them in the flesh! Cool.

Hi Miss M! I'm newly visiting from Kyknoord's blog. You were afraid of a toilet monster? I've always had that fear!!! Especially at night, in the dark, after seeing a horror movie.

Your night sounds great. Congrats!
