Two huge things have happened in my life since my last post.
1. I'm working on a Netflix television series at Pinewood Iskandar Studios, Malaysia called Marco Polo. I got hired as a summer intern while school is on summer vacation. It's been super exciting, being able to experience all the background work. I've been working in the Casting Department, which is where we usually look for extras needed for a particular scene/shoot.
Jer got a full-time position as an Assistant Casting Director- which is a pretty exciting position.
I've been at this job for about three weeks now. I did hope to be on set a lot more but unfortunately (to my disappointment, of course), I'm pretty much in the office all the time. :(
Definitely still a wonderful opportunity that not many can brag about. :)
2. So everyone definitely already knows this but.. GERMANY WON THE FRIGGIN' WORLD CUP.
When Lahm lifted that cup in the air, it totally moved me to tears. I've only waited half my life for this moment, after all.
Random moments captured in the Casting Department:
It was a colleague's birthday!
Big group picture! :)
Johor best friend!
One good thing about this job? I finally have friends in Johor! Except, most of them will be gone when this production is done. :(
Saturday day off!
I wish I could post more pictures of what happens behind the scenes, but I will get sued for that. PLEASE WATCH MARCO POLO WHEN IT COMES OUT!
