first day on the job, a reflection

First day at work for the film was good, aside from the smoldering temperature in the production office. Mind you, it probably didn't help that I was clothed in a wool sweater. Feature films are a little different from television, but the same principles apply. Just trying to get a grip on the admin areas of the production and I'll be set.

I couldn't help but notice the poster of Smash Cut, a film made by this production company, in the front entrance of the office. For all you Entourage fans, Smash Cut is the film referenced in several episodes with guest star Sasha Grey. She's the protagonist of SC. I wonder what it feels like knowing most viewers, and probably Entourage watchers, have seen you naked. More over, have seen you gang banged. She's a pretty girl. What do her parents think of her work? Do all the guys she went to high school with secretly jerk it to her? What about her creepy uncle, does he do it too? The world is too small to conceal such a career from anyone who knows you, and quite frankly I doubt there's been any effort to make those films incognito.

Now that I'm no longer a Facebook user, I think about some of the photos that were posted of me. Some may have been inappropriate, some may have been straight up unflattering. And even that made me wonder what my parents thought of me. I couldn't imagine being on the other end of a "I can't believe you fuck people on camera for money" speech.

I guess all it is in retrospect is taking what you do in the privacy of a bedroom and splattering it on someone's television screen or monitor. What's so bad about that?
