Today was the second of two days I was on set, and it was one of the best on-set experiences I've had. I was lucky enough to join them (Rebecca Hall, Jason Sudeikis, director Sean Mewshaw and writer/executive producer Desi Van Til) for a bit at lunch yesterday, and I absorbed and learned quite a bit simply from listening to what they had to say and how they approach their crafts, and left with a renewed passion and direction for my own career path. Wow! I am so grateful to director Sean Mewshaw and writer/executive producer Desi Van Til for the experience!
