Thanks to the hard work of my colleagues, I have finally been able to complete post-production on STILL. And this is wonderful because, while I am pleased with the final cut of the film, I am also so sick of looking at it. I'm definitely ready for others to be the ones watching instead of me. … Continue reading [STILL] Post-Production is Complete!
I've started having a little fun with instagram the past week, trying to capture images that lend themselves to narrative. I wish there were easier ways to embed the video here, because I think they make neat little #fridayflash entries. Anywho, here's a link to the first one I did (my favorite so far).
After a fun and informative trip to the Austin Film Festival, I was returning with renewed motivation to get to work on STILL, a desire I've expressed sporadically for the past, oh, 15 months or so. I attended a number of panels on independent filmmaking, and I was excited to get back to my own, … Continue reading Life Has a Funny Way
Can I be honest with you? After completely zeroing out on all the contests this year (the first time that's EVER happened since I started this whole screenwriting pursuit), I was ready to totally give up on writing. I had excuses. I have a full-time day job. I spend another 10-15 hours a week (sometimes … Continue reading Existential Crises and Pregnancy-Induced Mania
First things first, at about 11:30 p.m., which was approximately 15 and a half hours into our shoot, we somehow managed to come up with a name to replace the sort-of-awful THE HUMAN STATUE. So, from here on out, I'll be referring to this little creative endeavor as STILL, which we thought was pretty clever … Continue reading [STILL] Post-Production Begins
As I enter into production weekend, I'm reminded how lucky I am to have the support system I do. Having to use little effort to convince someone to stand around in silver paint all day not moving. Having an incredibly amazing photographer jump at the request to lend her talents (for free) to my creative … Continue reading [STILL] With a Little Help From My Friends
I'm about two and a half weeks out from my next venture into short filmmaking, which means my brain will be shooting near constant levels of stress hormones into my body until about 5 a.m. on Sunday, June 26th. I'm still working on casting, and at the end of the week I'm sending out the … Continue reading [STILL] Waders, Wedding Dresses & Ditty Freaking Out (aka, Gearing Up for a Short Film)
Happy Monday, everyone. I hope you are better slept than I am, and I hope that if you are as critically underslept it is for reasons as delightful as mine. I found out Friday I made the Top 100 + Ties and advanced to Round 2 of Creative Screenwriting's Cyberspace Open, which is pretty fun … Continue reading [STILL] Stories and Storyboards
THE BITS: I finished my rewrite/polish of 'TIL DEATH PARTS US, but I'm going to give it one more gander before I call it done. But that'll have to wait 'til I'm done with my current task, which is a mad dash to make some pretty significant but entirely necessary changes to MONSIEUR VALENTINE in … Continue reading Bits and Bobs
