While I waited for my turn, I basked in the teamwork, camaraderie, and Jonnah nearly rolling on the floor with happiness when she gets a really good shot of a performance while giving instructions to the other members who are in another room- the studio- to get good angles and panning.
|Caffeine-induced Jonnah is happy.|
So guise, if ever I'm studying in DLSU and I'm in a class with Jonnah, I will fight to the death just to have her as one of my groupmates. Because a.) she's a nerdfighter, b.) she's detail-oriented and c.) she works her goddamn ass off, even if it means chugging buckets of Starbucks coffee.
|On a totally unrelated note, she loves my rings.|
|Director Jonnah directing.|
After they filmed my performance, I hung out for awhile longer. The whole thing came to the point where the members who took the role as hosts for the pseudo-musical variety TV show couldn't decide what to do, the camera crew inside the studio weren't replying to the director, and the producer (John, I think?) sternly said something like, "guys, we're wasting time and we're wasting film." Then one member snapped back at him and practically bursted into tears. We were like:
And he was like, "oooohhh shit, I did one thing I'm not supposed to do." After a few moments, he called for a break to talk to the girl. While he was gone, Jonnah, a classmate of hers, and I continued on our conversation. Jonnah was laughing when she suddenly had a panic attack. It took a few seconds to comprehend what was happening to her until it dawned to me that she was having a panic attack. She wheezed for a paper bag. Her classmate and I were like "paper bag! But where??"
|WE'RE TOTALLY CALM|
The producer eventually called for a meeting.
Best part is, all this shenanigan is a normalcy in the TV production world. :D
Lol Jonnah noticed I did the nerdfighter gang sign in the video after I've left. DFTBA guise. And BREATHE.
