It had been over a year since I'd been on an airplane. This one never got off the ground. Iris answered a casting call, got the role plus a job doing warddrobe for From Concentrate, a low-budget featurette being shot here in Seattle. She asked if I could build sets. Knowing my limits, I said no but recommended Dave the Wizard. Dave got the job and called me several days later in need of emergency labor. That I could do, so I showed up at the rented house in Georgetown and we got to it. We worked long and hard, figuring it out as we went along. Melamine hardboard, frosted acrylic, and 7 left-handed rows of bus seats rented from Grayline Seattle. Lag bolts, 2x4s and self-boring screws. Lunch and dinner at the Marco Polo, which is worth a visit if only to see the wood-spoked cantilevered canopy above the bar. Done.
