so it looks like i'm staying at my job for a few more years.. my department head is moving to IDAHO in Septmember and i'm gonna take over the booth... woot?
more pay, the cool title of Projection Manager on a resume, annnndd.. more crap films.. meh.. so hopefully with skool (which i sign up for tomorrow and i'd better get the fucking classes i want dammit.. please please br'er palomar???)and eventually finishing and typing up the book i'm writing and so on.. I can actually get the hell out of the hole i put myself in!!! yay?
tomorrow begins my Narnian hell..everyone goes to rosarito, i stay to build a 9 reel film.. or two.. or three or four..
*fun fact: the films are sent to us on 9-20 minutes of film on reels.. sent by three distributors: technicolor, ETS, or Brakewater.. tech. and ETS deliver during the day via DHL and Brakewater delivers via some cracked out ex biker dude who arrives between the hours of midnite and 4 AM!!! (if he feels like it) on Friday morning.. and brakewater sucks.. ass.. seriously.. its not the courier that i mind, cuz he's all "fuck all" about everything and anyone(he called Mobsters and Mormons a piece of shit in front of the GM.. giggle).. its not the service at the distribution center that i mind either, cuz they're just like "yeah whatever" when you complain about the courier.. No what bugs me is that the prints that they release are just so GODDAMN DIRTY!!!! I swear (and i do.. alot) that they got some FNG workin at the developement lab and is pissing on the prints while they develope.. Aeon Flux-ass nasty, Harry Potter-had to replace a reel, WTF?!
so yeah--Harry Potter-9 reel film=2hours37mins... think of the suck of Narnia.. but i'll prolly enjoy it.. and see it wednesday..
