and how to convince yourself that it's going to be made.
This update was also posted at the secret writing journal, and cross posted here for memory's sake. This is regarding the current filming process/writing of a script/screenplay/short film that will hopefully be in the works still, by the end of the year.
: One man's journey through a day, living with his fear of ________.Timeframe
: None. Time off booked for writing/finishing/editing/storyboarding/t
hought processing @ last week of May. Looking for finished script hopefully by end of summer for possible filming in late fall. Not wanting anything too long so far, expecting a 7-10 minute short film.Writers
: Me, Her, anyone with good ideas.Actors
: None. Looking at possibles through friends, possibly having the two writers have bit parts in the background for shits and giggles, but it's strange having friends, most likely for the fact that they either can't act, or won't take it seriously enough.Filming
: Friend from work has filmed before, but we currently have no filming equipment. Will also look into renting equipment on specific days of week when we can all huddle together. That's far in advance. Editing
: Friend from work again, only a different friend, and this one has a computer with the correct software and hardware for what would be called editing of the work, so I'll have to buy him a case of beer, or some cheap drugs.Screening
: If editing friend can make copies of DVD type thing, hopefully, and hand it off to friends of friends, maybe even parents if it doesn't suck. Zed.cbc.ca will host it, maybe even play it on TV. Even farther ahead than filming, but hey, I'm bored at work.Artwork
: Who knows. Have a girlfriend who's great at photography, but what would we want as a cover? Should come later as the actors roll in and the pieces fall together. Other
- Dropouts are always possible. Depending on who it is, and how much is already done at the time. Replacements are always possible, as we hopefully have enough friends to do things, right? Don't use them for acting, use them for grunt work.
- Weather conditions in Winnipeg are always the most drastic. from 30c summers to -50c winters, if we're getting low on time where winter's concerned, either have to rush the shooting, or turn a possible summer film into a winter one, which wouldn't be so hard, as long as we're not stuck in a week of -50 weather and trying to film short scenes outside that end up requiring half a day, otherwise I'm going to hide in my car.
- Film mess ups aren't possible, they're expected, especially with dialog. We're a bunch of people who haven't even done this kind of thing before, so I'm guessing we'll have a pretty big gag reel.
-Music will be scored by a friend from work (aren't they all so far?), who's said we might end up with the same sounding music as from Ravenous
. That's not too bad, as long as we don't break the copyright infringement.
Any other professional help along the way would both be asked for and prodded to join. We have open ears.
Current Mood: bored
