I have always known that I wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry is because every day is different. Being as energetic as I am, I cannot handle boring very well. Interning with EDMS has just strengthened my passion for every aspect of this industry.
Last week was Thanksgiving which meant that it was a shortened week. Since I intern on Thursday and Fridays, I thought I was going to have off. I was so sad that I wouldn't get to go to my favorite place for that whole week. BUT THEN, Jake asked me if I could go with him to a shoot at Bowlmor Lanes in Times Square to shoot a video for Z100's Jingle Ball. OBVIOUSLY I said yes 1,000 times. Jake and I had our creative juices flowing, laying in bowling lanes to get the perfect shots. I even had to crouch down at the end of the lane and film Garrett and Skeery throwing heavy bowling balls towards the pins... and me! Good thing I trust them! The highlight of the day was when Garrett climbed into the life size claw machine preventing Skeery from winning a prize, when a burger bigger than my head was topped with a sparkler lit on fire, and when Jake told me that this video was going on the Jumbotron at Z100's Jingle Ball. Yeah, that's right, the JUMBO TRON. I never could have imagined that something I helped make would be shown at one of the year's most anticipated, sold out, concert event.
Here's me laying in the lane to get the perfect shot:
The day ended with Garrett and Skeery giving away more Jingle Ball tickets to listeners and Jake and I snacking on mozzarella sticks when the camera stopped rolling. As I walked back to the train, I even saw the Rockettes practicing outside of Macy's for the Thanksgiving Day parade! How awesome is that? Man, I love New York City.
Keep up with my crazy life!
