Just the other day I was walking through the parking lot with a few of my colleagues and I took notice what a hot mess it was. It was absolutely not beautiful. I was actually really frustrated by this as I noticed the dark stains on the concrete, the trash moving ungracefully through the air, and the look of a unkempt lot.
You see, I’m a pretty picky person and I like my things a certain way. Even more so, I like to set a series of experiences that lead up to an ultimate day – THE ultimate day. Every day I start of with my personal affirmations in a very loud way, my prayer with absolute emotional intensity, and of course my reading and audio.
As I drive in my car I no longer listen to music, but I listen to other people in my field that are crushing it and have a vision to serve more people through films – it’s awesome!
When I walk on my set to work it has to be absolutely stellar! It just has to, because it sets the mood and its a series of events leading to our team’s ULTIMATE experience. Here’s what I personally have done to change all of this:
In Houston there are three major power washing services in different cities located near us, and fortunately our friend, Andrew Thompson, services these three areas. Now, why do I mention Andrew above everyone else? He’s the most consistent, and persistent and is able to do what he needs to do quickly. One of this power washing services lies in Houston, Texas and we have used him extensively because of how close that side of his business is to us.
His other two are:
The reason why I wanted to give Andrew a shout out is because of the sheer fact that we’ve been using him for years and his dedication to the best service is the best out there bar none.
Now, let me tell you what happened after contracting him for this parking lot. I walk outside the same day we spoke with Andrew and the parking lot was brilliant. Not only did I walk out of the set feeling extremely awesome, but the way back home was awesome as well.
Power washing a parking lot is just one of the many things we can contract someone for during a film production. In the next couple of weeks I’ll be covering much more, and these entries will become more intense as a result of the process. I look forward to keeping you updated and we will speak soon.
