I'm in Atlanta Georgia. I'm sitting here in a hotel room. Twenty two floors above the ground. I shot all day today. I was in the studio all day today doing a bit a bit of doing a seen these scenes that we're working on they have did. They revolve around songs for the movie. Respect with Jennifer Hudson myself and others and Marlon Marlon Wayans and these are long and fairly complicated scenes to shoot in that. There's no stunt involved but they're singing and there's musicians and it's a whole day to shoot To shoot some of these musical sequences take place in the studio. But I gotta be honest with you. It's been pretty great. It's like I'm just I don't know what it may be. I'm just figuring out how to be on a set maybe just accepting that. This is a job I do. It's part of the things I do with my life. I don't know what it is but Being in this character and in this situation and in the late sixties at Atlantic records recording aretha Franklin is kind of an exciting thing man and it. Just I I've just sort of locked into the gig of it and I'm not even talking the these few days but I'm enjoying the work is that okay. Is that okay if I enjoy the work. Thank God thank God him.
