    Ok, so its been a bitter bitter winter so far, in fact the coldest start that I've ever felt - of course I say that every year. And unfortunately I've been stuck making a film rather than up on the slopes, but I digress.

    It is no longer a horror western - bugger shooting outside - and is now a Office Western - yes you heard right - so Ladies and Gentlemen, and without further ado, I present to you ba da da da da dum.

    Hey Guys,

    This is our first attempt at a DVXFest film after focusing on local film competitions. Being based in New Zealand Westerns arent our strongest suit but we will give it a crack.

    A couple of factors are shaping what we shoot and how we shoot it:

    1. There is a desert in the middle of the island that I live on, however its at altitude and by the time we start shooting it will probably be covered in snow. Its also a military training ground with public access being forbidden. There are however a unique breed of wild horses loose on the range.
    2. Pistols are pretty hard to come by - any firearms that aren't designed for hunting being banned. Even the police aren't armed.
    3. While we have our own frontier/gold rush history most of the sort of frontier villages that people here seem to be getting hold of are tourist traps and would cost a fortune to hire.
    4. Our team is also based in Wellington which is a city that was completely destroyed by an earthquake a hundred odd years ago therefore there isn't much from the settler period in the region.
    5. As I said winters just starting so its most likely raining, hopefully its too early to be snowing in our primary location.
    What we do have is pretty rugged and spectacular terain, our goal is to go and shoot on a farm in Taranaki (which is ironically on the west coast) and have kind of a modern horror western thing going on. Pretty low key in comparison - a simple film told well.

    Hopefully we can honor all of the criterea of the competition while telling a story not really set in the west of the US.

    Cheers guys,

    Script is all but abandoned in its current form, back to the drawing board slightly. Hopefully have a rough draft locked down by the end of the week.
