Well, now that the thrill of this week's cartoon contest is over, it's back to regular blogging.
Yesterday, I went to the beach. The second season of a "reality" show I worked on last season and I'm working on again started filming.
The show this week had a "pirate"esque theme with a map leading to a romantic picnic on the beach in Malibu. The highlight was finding a buried treasure chest. For the picnic setting, I tried to make it romantic with fun pirate touches without getting too crazy with the theme. Sort of a small comfortable spot a shipwrecked pirate interior decorator might create waiting for rescue.
The location really added to it. Funny thing is, it may look secluded on camera but 50 feet on either side are numerous people enjoying a day at the beach.
