Strings Day went by like a flash! I slept in pretty hard this morning, and by the time I made it to set they were already about to start tracking. I still had to set up lights and clean up the room!I managed to throw up a couple lights during their little breaks and get some good footage though.
I think they had strings on the schedule until midday tomorrow, but by 8pm they had wrapped all the tunes! We were so excited about getting to bed early that we celebrated until 6am. It got to the point where, after hanging out on the porch talking about space and the existence of alien life for about an hour, the strings section decided to sight read some Brahms in the studio.
You'd think that in their condition there's no way they could play anything, much less a Brahms piece they'd never looked at before, but nope, they did a shockingly good job--probably because they had me directing them though. I managed to find a baton in the studio, which helped me keep them in time... if they would just WATCH ME!
Awesome night. Great work strings peeps!
