Art and Soul

We arrived in Portland ready to roll on set up for our make shift filming studio. Energy ready. Excitement building. Coffee surging through our otherwise probably-still-should-be-in-bed-sleeping-bodies and BAM! "You're hotel room is still being cleaned." We looked at each other not totally sure what to do with this information. I mean, we were *ready*. But alas, it would not be. (And really would not be for another couple of hours) but we made good use of our time by checking out the cool lobby of Embassy Suites and eating food. Can't deny the merits of food.

Once we got into our room we moved all the furniture out and set up shop. I had a moment of discomfort when Jim had to saw through two metal pipes (ours, NOT the hotels) to do the final touches on the structure that held our cameras and lights. I can just see hotel staff looking around and saying, "wait, now is that a *saw* we hear?" Yes. Yes it is.

Speaking of noise, our sound guy can't tell which to roll his eyes at more, the waterfall in the lobby or the jet planes over head coming to land at the airport. I don't think it'll be too much of a problem. We'll know more tomorrow that's for sure.
