He ‘helped’ make the bed, took twice as long. (He even got between the mattress and the wall at one point to ‘pull down’ the box sheet.)
Hey there! thank you so much for writing me — I love when people ask questions like this. It makes me feel POWERFUL!!!!!
Classic Alice is actually (by Hollywood standards) a tiny production. It was something like a 30 person cast/crew — tiny. But that’s still a LOT to organize. I can’t emphasize having a great team enough. Surround yourself with people who can make crap happen when you can’t because you won’t be able to do it all at every single second. Find people who love you even when you’re grumpy. Find people who believe in you because you believe in them. Ask for help.
As far as writing advice… Outline. I mean, that’s what helped me. I know a lot of writers who are like WHATEVERMAN and my inner Rackham curls into a ball and sobs. I like knowing where things are going & when you add transmedia into the mix, you need to see the arc. I also use color codes to map out exactly what character/relationship is going where. And so it’s pretty too.
Helpful? Not helpful?
Our cast and crew comes together again this weekend! Say hello, ask your questions!
the timid european ground squirrel, stopping to smell the daisies, photographed in vienna by julian rad, who explains, “you have to be at eye level with the squirrels. that means you have to lay on your stomach for quite a few hours in order to get them in front of your lens. you have to make yourself invisible. it is important that they have no indication you are there.” (see also: more precious lil woodland buddies)
Squirrels are kinda my jam.
Oh noooooooo but also yes.
