#ProjectAdventure weeks 14 and 15: Of Mice and Men in New York and getting high in Seattle

November 30, -0001 by Melissa Leave a reply »

Over the past two weeks, we traveled to New York City, San Francisco, Seattle and Denver for shoots. In each city we had a lot to do and not a lot of time to do it. We were getting on and off planes, lugging heavy equipment, going to bed late and waking up before sunrise in our quest for morning light.

When work is so big and all-consuming, it can be really easy to lose your life in the shuffle. But how can you be a creative and inspired filmmaker when all you do is work? The answer is that you can’t. And more and more, I’m realizing that Project Adventure is actually a key part of making sure we remember to take a step back and recharge our brains and our souls.

Which is why, in spite of bad weather, exhaustion and some snarly New York traffic, Tom and I made a mad dash to see James Franco and Chris O’Dowd on Broadway in Of Mice and Men for week 14. And it’s why Megan and I decided that even though we only had a few free hours in Seattle, we’d spend them in the city’s loftiest heights, going to the top of the Space Needle and following that up with a ride on the new ferris wheel that sits right on the water.

Here are some shots of our adventures…

    Loving that you guys are so dedicated to Project Adventure!! It’s true – it’s so easy to get caught up in our busy lifestyles, committing so much time and energy to other people, events and jobs (even if they are wicked fun). Brendan and I’s New Years Resolution was to do an out-of-the-box date night every month, something we wouldn’t normaly do. It’s been great! I think that’s why I love Proj Adventure so much :)

  2. Glad you snuck away — twice. YAY for Project Adventure rolling on despite the busy!
