According to Tina, this blonde lady is famous or successful or something, I forget what she said exactly. But we were not able to get clear pictures of her because her management has trademarked the airspace within which she moves, and clear shots may only be gotten with written prior permission. It's fascinating new technology.
Pic by Dave Monroy using my weird camera (not Dave's fault).
This lobbyist for the carriage drivers kept standing right in front of me blocking my shot and he smelled really really bad. I'm not kidding. Here is a close up of his dandruff, which I had to look at for long periods, my back to the wall and this dude in front.

Today we shot two Jason videos, one a solo composition and one he wrote with Kate Nash.
Only Jason would want to shoot a music video in a library, and the security guard was instructed to make us stop. But I told the security guard that we were shooting home movies and Jason was making this video as a surprise for his daughter on her birthday. I said it would really make his daughter happy on her birthday if we could just shoot the video. So the security guard went back and got permission from his boss for us to make Rachel a surprise video. Only Rachel's birthday is past, so we shot the Kate Nash video instead (sorry Rachel).
