Jason, Scott, and I hit the road at 7:30am from Oakville bound to NYC. We have been collecting receipts our whole way and keeping costs light to focus our funds on paying the artists. Only $1,500 to go on the Kickstarter!
We stopped at two rest stops to pick up "Peanut Chews" for Scott and some usual fast food for the two skinny young men. We ended up filming a vlog on our way and seeing a man who probably peed himself on the way. The excitement in the car was growing.
After 8 and half hours we arrived in New York City and dropped our car off at an underground parking lot for the three days. Scott's car was so dirty the plates couldn't be read.
We met with the owner of our Airbnb and took over the keys. The space is great and really lends itself to our work. We went out to film in the city around 6:30pm. We finally found a place for a Vegan and a picky eater (Jason) to eat called "Global Kitchen".
After this we filmed at 30 Rockefeller and Times Square. NBC studios inspires me somehow. It's where modern broadcasting was born, and filming there with our own project was pretty special.
Everyone has been friendly, even when Jason and I were shoving each other to see if we'd bump into other people (we did).
Tomorrow we shoot morning shots at Time Square, The Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State building, and Tribeca.
It's been pretty perfect so far.
