After 9 years, the Yankees took home their 27th world title last night be defeating the Phillies 7 to 3 in the new Yankee Stadium! The Bronx was definitely burning and all day I’ve seen nothing but pure pride for argubly the best team in the MLB. Aside from the Giants winning the Super Bowl last year, a World Series win was needed for New York after years of recession depression, the pain of the Bush Administration, and just simply living life in the post 9/11 world. It’s nice to finally see something good that we can all rally behind as citizens of the greatest city in the world.
Things are also looking up in the job scene for me as well. I landed a two day job as a production assistant for a commercial being shot for Visa’s BarclayCard. It wasn’t all fun and games being that the shoot had closed down part of Pearl St. in lower Manhattan to execute an aerial camera trick on a cable system called the “spydercam”. Myself along with several other PA’s had to direct traffic and keep pedestrians safe and away from the action. It felt more like security work than anything else but well worth the time and experience. I even have another one day job coming up next week.
Dishonorable Vendetta is still in production for two weeks until we take a hiatus for the rest of the year while interest is building up on one of the scripts I wrote recently. Can’t wait to see how this plays out.
