Disney's Magical Express Video Shoot

Posted Jul 06 2013 10:30pm
Boy do we have some catching up to do! How was your holiday weekend?
I posted a short "blerb" of our 4th of July (which I actually typed on set Friday) but here's a more complete version.

The Watermelon 5k in Winter Park, Florida, is a holiday tradition that I have announced for the past several years.  We had about 4,000 runners with lots of red, white, and blue spirit.
The winning female was ironically from Norway and won in a time of about 17:20.  Uh - that's 5:34 average pace per mile fast.
Beast Mode was in the house! Hi Tamara!
Announcer and DJ Steve (the original)
As I mentioned on Friday , Kyle and I relaxed for a majority of the fourth and then we got in a relaxing workout at the gym.  And by relaxing, I mean he made me do 100 deadlifts!  Not cool Uncle Sam! Kyle did 100 squats and was equally thrilled by the pain.
After a sweat and a shower we had a family BBQ at Kyle's parents house.  I brought healthy coleslaw and pickles to contribute to the spread.  Guess which plate belongs to Kyle?
We had a plethora of great food included grilled burgers, chicken, and hot dogs with smoked chicken.  The sides included coleslaw, Iowa Girl Eats orzo salad (made by Kelsey), potato salad, baked beans, and watermelon.  We're so American!

Friday morning I had a 10 hour video shoot at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I was pretty excited about this shoot and was mentally prepared for the day.  I had about 15 pages of script to get through.  Thank goodness for the teleprompter.
I arrived at 9am and was done with hair and makeup by around 10.  We shot on the green screen from 1045 to about 1, went to lunch, and then went back to work until 530.
What's the video for you ask?  Have you ever stayed at a Walt Disney World resort and ridden Disney's Magical Express?  Well here's a hint...if you ride the bus in a few months then you might hear a familiar voice...the-ENTIRE- ride!  Yes, I can tell you're booking your trips now :)
I kid, but it was a great shoot and a wonderful team to work with.  Best part of my day?  We needed a picture of me on Rock 'n Rollercoaster for the video, so I gladly obliged.  Ride a ride with no wait in the front seat?  Don't mind if I do!
The long day of shooting wore me out and Kyle had a pretty packed day too, so cooking was not on my "must-do" list.  I was "trying" to eat healthy, so I convinced myself that a salad at a BBQ joint was healthy.  Probably not, but it was delish!  If you're ever in Central Florida you need to plan a trip to 4 Rivers Smokehouse.  There is usually a line out the door, so you know it's good.
I had the cornbread salad with pulled chicken and a side of green beans.  I also ate a lot of Kyle's baked beans.  Big bean fan right here!
Want to know what an exciting Friday night sounds like?  Watching LockUp and laying in bed while your cat hides from leftover fireworks.  Party animals for sure.  I had a 9 miler on tap for Saturday, so I was perfectly inclined to kick up my heels and remind myself why I never want to go to jail.

This post might be getting a bit lengthy, so I'll pop back in tomorrow with a Saturday recap and a run recap. Don't forget to wish Polie a Happy Birthday! She turned 10 on the 4th!
Ever seen Lockup?
Are you a Friday night stay-in or go-out type?

Love and incarceration,
Carissa & Kyle
