After Hours

I know an AC who refuses to go out with the crew after wrap.  He told me, “I see these people all day, every day.  Why would I want to spend more time with them?”

Of course, he was dating his 2nd, so, there you go.

Working on a TV show is exhausting (or boring).  Most days, you just want to go home and do nothing. But when your hear people are getting drinks, sometimes you just gotta suck it up and keep going.  This business is about networking, after all.

I do sympathize with him, though.  I just spent twelve hours with this crew.  I see them more than I see my wife.  What else could we possibly have left to talk about at the end of the day?

It’s easy to be friendly on set, but it’s hard to be friends, you know?

  1. I mean, in my case, these people I work with for twelve hours became my friends. I have no problem going out with them. But in the immortal words of reality tv whores everywhere, “I’m not here to make friends.” I’m not morally opposed to it if it happens, though.

  2. That was a problem for me. I so wanted to make friends outside of the industry but since I was basically on set all day long, trying to find “normal” friends (LOL), became quite a challenge.

    Plus, while living in LA, it’s virtually impossible to make a friend that isn’t somehow connected to the biz.
