bald mountain

Last night we had a heads-of-department meeting for our current project, and on the suggestion of our director of photography we all squished together on the couch and watched the bald mountain scene from Fantasia.  Sometimes I am hit with a wave of joy at what my job consists of.   Not that that's all I do, mind you, and right now it feels like in addition to the usual endless hours of rehearsals and classes, I'm also doing a gazillion other jobs.  But even in the midst of all this frenzy and anxiety and exhaustion, I'm still pretty damn happy.  And in a week or so, when things calm down, I'm going to make a point to re-watch all of Fantasia, because it truly is amazing.  As a kid I remember laughing at Micky and being terrified of this mountain devil, but if you haven't watched it as an adult I strongly suggest you do, because you can appreciate it for what it is - pure visual creative imagination and interpretation of music.  Absolute freedom.

  1. I've been meaning to re-watch it for months now. Maybe next week I finally will also. :)


Say what?
