WINTER IN THE DESERT
What is the best cure for winter depression?
How about driving an hour and a half outside LA where you can be immersed in sunshine?
What is a good way to force you back into winter depression? Coming back to a frozen sloppy Saint Louis ice land. Home sweet home.
I love the desert. I really really do. I need to get closer to this before I die. Preferably before the age of 35. If anyone would like to support funding living there, I would gladly accept your offer. I'll send you my paypal.
Anyway, last week I was shooting at the same location that Devils Rejects had been shot. Beautiful landscape in the windy sandy brown California Desert. I found out this spot has been in almost everything related to the desert.
I managed to have a little down time after day two of shooting. We climbed a small mountain and hiked up a cacti and tumble weed covered hill. On the way back down, we happened upon the filming of next season's TRUE BLOOD. Kind if cool, even though that show is about as cheesy as they come. Here is some video from the climb.
I have to admit, it was sketchy climbing some of these rocks and I was getting freaked out by some of the cliffs. Considering it was the first active thing I have done all winter, my balls seem to have
shrunk and I am lacking in the adventurous spirit. Unlike the state of mind I was in at THIS POINT.
I will post photos when I get caught up as well as photos from LA.
Full Desert set...
