5-weeks from "ACTION!"
We are 5 weeks away from calling "ACTION!" and rolling camera. Can you believe it?? There's still so much to do, but everything is starting to fall into place.
Our main focus has been the casting puzzle, and I'm excited to share that we have confirmed our first talent! She will be playing Marcy, one of the two female leads. We're close to confirming our other two leads as well, so we'll be announcing the whole package officially when they've all signed the dotted line.
We're doing a lot of hiring in other departments as well -- director of photography, line producer, first assistant director, unit production manager. The team is growing, and the requisites for us are passion, experience and GOOD VIBES! This is going to be a fun and exciting shoot, but a challenging 18 days as well. We need to create a family who will all have each other's backs, keep complaining to a minimum and never forget to have fun along the way.
I finished the first draft of my shot lists yesterday. This is, essentially, the movie on paper. A description in technical camera terms of the scenes that have been playing in my head for two years. It fills two small legal pads. I'm looking forward to sitting down with my cinematographer to collaborate further with him, and I'm going to find a storyboard artist to work with to turn the descriptions into pictures, which will support us a lot on set. You can get a sneak peek of Scenes 1, 84 and 85 in the picture below... :)
Thank you again for your contributions! We're almost at 50 backers already. Next stop: 100! Please continue to spread the word to anyone else who might contribute.
With love and gratitude,
Liam, Katherine and Lindsay
