...for a beautiful commercial shoot for ThedaCare up in Neenah, Wisconsin, is how I spent my Valentine's Day. We got really lucky with the sun that day before clouds started rolling in. The sun was just coming up over Lake Winnebago and it was stunning. And a very beautiful and peaceful way to begin what turned out to be a fun shoot. I had my doubts about shooting a commercial outdoors on a lake in Wisconsin in the middle of winter! But happily, it wasn't windy and it was in the 30s (could have been negative numbers, dontcha know!) and we were nicely bundled. The other two women who were in the commercial were so lovely and fun. My shot with them was to turn from camera and meet up with them and stroll down a small pier towards a lighthouse. I honestly can't remember a lovelier location for a shoot. I think the beautiful day and setting had us all in high spirits and we laughed and talked a lot. The director was awesome - so great to work with, so supportive and complimentary, full of great ideas and worked off of what I brought to the table. He gave me a huge hug when I wrapped, which is not usual. Later, the producer said that he was impressed with me - that I got all kinds of direction and did everything the director asked, which, I'm not gonna lie, made me feel so incredibly good. You don't always get that kind of feedback on a shoot, so it really made my day. All in all, a totally fabulous day. Feeling very fortunate and grateful this morning....for my life, for continuing to work, for....everything :-)
I hope your day is full of wonderful.
