I always enjoy your kind comments--thanks. Yup, that's the way I do everything. Shoot first--write later. It's the only way I get to thinking cinematically.Originally Posted by D_and_G
Good point. I didn't. But I saw myself falling into some genre cliches that I was really hoping to avoid. So I stopped, trashed everything, and rethought the whole thing.Originally Posted by D_and_G
Yes! I think I've FINALLY given myself "permission" to do just that! And now that I've done that (and am doing 'that'--shooting what I feel passionately about), it's all kind of coming together now--naturally and unforced. Thanks so much for that thoughtful comment. I really feel like I'm on a better track now with this project. I am excited about making films again--and that's a very good thing. And yes, I definitely plan to shoot some BTS footage of the more interesting set-ups!Originally Posted by D_and_G

Nice Grabs Dude, and your marketing materials are super clean ...
though I prefer the sans serif font you were using in your banner.

Funny you should ask, Jack . . . [thanks for the kind comments, guys]
PRE-PRODUCTION UPDATE: 16 AUGUST 2006:
• Lead actress is on vacation.
• Script (what little of it there is--okay, it's still just an "idea.") needs a key set piece which apparently is unattainable unless you're a goddamned movie studio or something.
• Deadline is scaring the pee outta me right now, since, I basically still have NOTHING.

A small technical update on some tests . . .
DSR450 FOOTAGE vs. DVX100 FOOTAGE
Well, I intercut some DSR450 and DVX100 footage (DVX100 footage was blown-up in post to fill the 16:9 aspect ratio of the native DSR450 widescreen footage), and my trusty little ole' DVX held up pretty damned good! I may intercut way more DVX footage into this thing than I had originally planned! Perhaps, even enough to qualify for voting and prizes!
Anyway, I'm sure it won't be THAT easy to tell the difference, and if I actually do finish a film for this fest, it'll be interesting who can pick out the DSR- vs. DVX-acquired footage. Sorry, can't post any grabs, because that would give too much away.

Getting down to the wire. . .
09 SEPTEMBER UPDATE:
Well, I think I just recast my lead. Hot girl in banner lives too far away . . . maybe next contest. Met a stand-in on a TV show set today, and cast her on the spot (she agreed to do a bikini scene). Let you know if she shows up to the shoot I have planned for Sunday. I've cut about 40 seconds of set-up footage from stuff I've been shooting up until now with no actors, still with no script in hand. Only have that vague story idea I talked about before. Also bought some more props at Target today (at least that makes me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING). We'll see if I can pull it off soon enough.
