So…My name is Zach and I have a problem. I stopped writing and can’t seem to get off the wagon. However, it stops today! Here is my welcome back post. I was lucky enough to have a stuntman I met on Ghostbusters 3 (ooOOoo.. the stories that I have to catch up on) include me … More John Wick Fight Scene!
I’m taking a step back here for a second. I recently went back and read my very first post (Day 1. Flight to New Orleans.).

This is the first time I have had to do something like this. It was like the blood icing on … More Is being “not available” the kiss of the devil?
Someone said to me when I got back, “You have no idea how lucky you are to spend an hour with a coordinator. Guys hustle hard for 1 minute of time and you have managed to snag 60!” … More Awesome Hustle: Some Would Say I’m Super Lucky!

How much I wanted to be a part of this industry and … More Make up test. 18 planned hours in a car…One Goal.
