Welcome back RatPac-ers. Today we’d like you guys to take a journey back to 1931 with us where we’ll see what it’s like to spend a day in the life of a beautiful starlet named Lana:
Oh hi! I didn’t see you there. Welcome to my home. Don’t you just love sleeping with the windows open all night and feeling the ocean breeze wafting in first thing in the morning? Wait, you mean this isn’t how you live? Oh I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to brag. So let’s just move on…
After I drink my morning tea I’ll be getting ready to go to set. Today is day four of filming on my newest movie. This one is sure to be another box office hit. I sure do love what I do; and I especially love all of my adoring fans. But let me tell you, filming is no picnic!
Everyone thinks us movie stars have it so easy. You think all we do is go into a studio, recite a couple of lines and then poof we are famous! But that isn’t true at all. It’s a lot of hard work in some pretty unbearable conditions.
Picture this: you show up bright and early in the morning to a sound stage in the middle of the valley, where it is always at least 10 degrees hotter. You put on layers and layers of heavy costumes, and often times there are heavy wigs too, and then someone piles mounds of makeup on you. It is HOT in there and perspiration doesn’t even begin to cover it. But we still have to slap a smile—or a frown or tears—on our faces and act through it all.
And don’t even get me started on the noise! Oh my goodness! I’m surprised my poor ears can still hear anything at all. But still, we can’t yell over everything. We have to keep our tone calm and carry on.
Sometimes I sit in my bungalow and dream of a day when we will be able to film anywhere at any time. Maybe someday we won’t be stuck in a deathly hot sound stage surrounded by noisy machines and cords that you can trip on and break your neck with one false step…
Lana’s dreams have finally come true. Thanks to RatPac Wireless Dimmers the lucky starlets of today don’t have to work in the ghastly conditions that Lana described. You can take our dimmer packs anywhere— which means you can film anywhere. And don’t you fret, your delicate ears will be fine; our RatPac dimmers are silent.
