Here's what I've been up to.
Scotch - A man's drink on Vimeo
Ok, so I got distracted from the theme.... It isn't my real DVC entry, don't worry. :)

Please tell me you lined those up at a bar and they're not all yours... ;)

That's just gorgeous work, Dylan. Almost makes me wish I was a man so I could drink the man's drink.

Not really.

Oh, and Dick...we've found your scout.

Get a tripod to do the camera work for you and shoot something about how much you love pizza, or about an orange that escaped your grasp and made a dash for the door. Seriously. Do it. Or don't. But don't blame anyone but yourself.

Finally got a story approved by the only other person who's going to be a part of this film so now I can start writing. But the hard part is going to be pulling it off. I'm trying something I've never done before and may chicken out yet! Wish I had more time!!! ;)

There. Now no one will be able to say I haven't moved three couches in a day.

A friend of my grandmother's, who lives in the apartment building next to hers, is moving out, and offered two couches free of charge. My dad and I were called in to move them, as is SOP here, and we spent the day accomplishing that. The buildings are connected, so we stayed out of the rain, but the hallways in the basement are narrower than the ones upstairs, so figuring out how to get the things in and out of the elevators--one couch was exactly as tall as the cars, and barely fit--was quite the delicate ballet. And after the two new ones were moved over, the couch my grandmother already had needed to go down to the basement to be stored with the other bulk garbage items.

I mention this only because this neighbor also happened to be getting rid of an artificial tree, the likes of which I desperately need to dress my set, so I got a nice little gift for the day's work. Piece by piece, I'm gathering my things. So much excitement I can hardly stand it.

Today I had planned an hour's talk at a park about the challenge film with an actor friend, but we ended up discussing for 6 hours the other film we are currently making in which he is one of the main actors.

I'm now sitting at home at night and am updating the script, and see no end in sight. So the future for my DVC entry right now looks very bleak.
If I don't make it, we agreed to make at least a small funny tribute video on the food theme for the DV challenge (a non competing entry) during the shooting of our other film.

I think I may have my script worked out, and what's better there are barely any actors in it! Wahoo! I think I've been on the wall of shame for close to two years and that's just too darn long.

Even though I haven't gotten the full script written out, I feel like I'm ahead of schedule because I wasn't planning on doing any work until my taxes were done, but it's so much easier to be creative when you know you only other option is that much more difficult.

Well, I got my taxes done so I am focusing on finishing my script. This will be a first for me to actually go by a script. I plan on starting shooting this weekend. By the way Dylan I have a real thirst for some Scotch now... ;)

I had a story idea that I really really liked. Then reality set in that it would to hard to fit into my schedule at this point. So now it's on to plan B (in actuality its more like plan F, thank goodness for having a month) which means using what's immediately available to me.

It won't be as polished and I won't spend as much time as some I've done in the past, but I should be able to keep myself off the wall of shame.

Actually, they were all off my shelf and I shot it in my livingroom. :)

Ah, by the 6th drink you can substitute 25 year old Glenlivet for 94 octane gasoline and I'd slam it without blinkin. :D
