The last few days have been hectic, and the situation was not helped by our internet connection going haywire. On Friday it started only working when we on the phone, so we had to dial the speaking clock to send e-mails (a theme for a future timefest film maybe?!?). Then it stopped working completely, but we finally got it fixed yesterday.
Meanwhile we have been casting and now have a complete cast (photos uploaded on first page). We also have nearly all our props and wardrobe, and all equipment is organized for this weekend. We will be shooting on the DVX100.
We've realized that even for a six minute short it's worth having some help in pre-production - next time we'll try to find someone who wants to act as production assistant or something. We're also learning how much everything costs! We didn't give ourselves a fixed budget for Red Shoes, but we have gone well over what we vaguely expected, even though we've been buying nearly all our props and wardrobe second hand. However, we're writing everything down so that next time we can make a budget in advance and, hopefully, stick to it.
Several more changes have been made to the script - we're now on draft 6.
Storyboard and shot list have been rather pushed to the side, but we'll get on with them tomorrow.
Cast and crew are all fixed except for a makeup artist, but we have a contacted a makeup school to see if we can get hold of a student so hopefully someone will come through.
On Friday evening we are having a read through/rehearsal with the entire cast.
On Saturday (24th) we'll be shooting the exterior scenes (as long as the weather holds up), and on Sunday we will do the interiors.
I know a lot of other timefest films are shooting this weekend too, so I hope it all goes well for everyone.

Thanks Simon and Jason.
We had a cast meeting and script read-through tonight (photo below). All seems to be ready to start shooting tomorrow morning.

Awesome! Glad to see an international entry. I've long wished we'd get more entries from across the pond.Formerly user 'shawneous'.

Well, shooting is over and, all things considered, went very well. We feel we need three days sleep right now: Susanne and I averaged 2-3 hours sleep for 3 nights in a row. The weather cooperated, the sun moved too quickly, the cast and crew all got on really well and a good and exhausting time was had by all. We missed getting a couple of sequences, but nothing essential, so we have our story which is the important thing. Maybe if we had more time (and the budget) we would go back and get them later on, but we think this time round we will leave them be.
Will post some screen grabs soon.
