Movie Magic
The past two nights, I've gone along with the guys from work who were doing vfx supervision on the set of a movie being filmed here at the moment. It was interesting while being incredibly boring at the same time. The amount of time it takes to set up the shortest of takes is unbelievable.

The first night I went along to get photos of every angle of this car that they will have to recreate for an explosion scene. I left early and was home by 11, while the man didn't get home until after the chicken started making noise at 5 AM. I kind of wished I had stayed to see the stunt men being set on fire though. Last night we went back to get more photos of the walls in the alley for textures. It was kind of fun.


Birds in Backyards
This morning, my little tawny frogmouth was back in the tree by the house. He's lost the baby fluff, but he is still gorgeous. How can you not love a face like this?

That frogmouth is absolutely cool! Does he make any noises?

They are so beautiful. I haven't heard them make any noises. And in fact, they are hard to find at all, because they try to camouflage with the trees. The babies often can't resist opening their eyes and having a look at what's going on around them though.

That is a really lovely bird. What a curious looking face.
