I’m the first to admit my ideas are sometimes crazy. Painting a giant canvas while being filmed in costume on the hottest day of summer might qualify as one such crazy idea, but it was great fun! Bogdan, who came to film me (check out his other work at Buburuza Productions) was excellent at directing me on how to be dramatic (the video is supposed to be silent, so I needed to be very expressive to make up for it), and throughout the filming we laughed a lot. I can’t wait to see the final product!
I was worried about social distancing – but it was a one-on-one interaction in a large, well-ventilated room, more than 6 feet apart from each other, and we’ve both been staying away from others. And I’ll continue to do so, especially since, even with an interaction I trust to be safe, afterwards I feel like it’s responsible to quarantine for two weeks just in case. Matilda might have gotten a bit close to her new friend, but carousel horses are immune to the virus.
