You have no idea how many times I have captured Sydney's 50-State song on my camera. Singing in her jammies. Singing in the dark. Singing it on a Monday. On a Tuesday during breakfast. On a Wednesday during lunch.
Here she is singing it on a Thursday. As in, this morning. (video length: 1:17)
She was getting ready to leave soon for Grandma and Grandpa's house, that's why she has her backpack on. And somewhere around the "M"s, Jules grabbed the camera. The conditions we directors have to work under! Maybe I should go on strike.
Especially when my actors can't stay focused on the task at hand: (video: 20 seconds)
But I know, it's hard work memorizing all those states. So much so that Sydney needed to do a warm up lap for practice. (video: 1:07)
I think we're about ready to take this show on the road. Maybe Fox will pick us up since "24" has been postponed. We could write an episode for each letter of the alphabet. I don't know if we could compete with "Gray's Anatomy," but it might be better than reruns of "Two and a Half Men."
Not exactly compelling television, but we find it highly entertaining around here.
