We celebrate the L.A. wrap of “Clerks II” with a party up at the house. I play poker most of the night, and Trevor’s band plays out on the deck, joined for three songs by Sarah. Everyone seems to have a great time.
While most of the keys are coming with us to NJ for the three day shoot there, a bunch of the crew isn’t being flown out (due to budget constraints). I’ll miss ‘em all. 50% comprised of folks who’d worked on “Clerks”, “Mallrats”, “Chasing Amy”, “Dogma”, “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” and “Jersey Girl”, plus another 50% of new, excellent cats, this was easily the best crew I’ve ever worked beside. It’s my intention to bring everyone back on the next flick we shoot, whatever that may be. But for now, the least I can do is throw them a thank you shindig, which wraps at about four in the morning.
