All Hail the Craft Table

5 Aug

Being on a commercial set isn’t as glamourous as you’d think.

You spend tons of time sitting and doing nothing. Except eating. Because every set I’ve been on has had a craft services table chock-full of carb goodness.

Chips. Cookies. Gum. Donuts. Candy bars. It’s like a best-of-the-convenience-store party.

They do it so we can keep our energy up. I think. That or they just know I’m a freak over Milano cookies and they want to keep the writer happy.

The craft table is what keeps me in advertising. Because when I show up on set at the bumcrack of dawn, tired from a late night of writing, I know there will be breakfast tacos and biscuits and pineapple and blueberries.

And endless amounts of Whoppers, Fruit Roll-Ups, gum …

And those delectable  Milano cookies.

It's going to be a good day.
