My husband/coproducer Michael Lewis noticed a screw missing on my best tripod at the first shoot at Shotgun studios—he secured it with duct tape. After the second shoot at the first shoot at Shotgun studios, I noticed a second screw missing. Mike said he thinks he knows where we can get replacements. Great! I said—for now can you bring that spool of wire because you know, don’t you, that this is the sort of thing that keeps a lot of movies from being made? DERMALIAN by Sylvia Toy.
