No one else better be shooting reflections in rain puddles. hahaha, just kidding. Well, I've come up with an idea, got an actor, have lighting (let's see how I screw that up), even put together some locations and a shot list. Have a half written script.

We begin shooting on friday, re-write on saturday, re-shoot on sunday. Then we'll see where i'm at. If i'm not in jail on monday for shooting without a permit, i'll be a happy camper.

Makes me wish I had kids. I fear my talent will be a bit harder to direct. Still, I'm counting the days till Saturday just for the chance to run around town and give some new gear a good workout.

I have a shot list and I'm shooting on Saturday, how exciting! I'm beginning to fear score loss because although I included my hometown and elements of my hometown in almost every shot, the primary story of the film isn't based ON my hometown. . .being this my first time I really didn'tk now how strict I had to stay to the twist. I do have the theme covered very well, hopefully I'll be fine. *crosses fingers*

Seems like I probably should being that I live in NYC. I was doing a little online research into this and I found that a tourist spent 4 days in jail for shooting the outside of the UN building. I guess I can scratch that off my shot list. I also took my camera into Chinatown and found that they were not so keen on me shooting down there. I was yelled at quite harshly in Chinese. I think they thought I was a reporter.

I'm vaguely worried about permits as well here in DC. But I was shooting stills in all my locations last weekend and no one had a problem with that, nor with the hundreds of tourists around me with their palm-corders. My camera is better than that, but it's not like I'm bringing a big crew. In fact, I scripted to avoid needing lights or sound on location so that I can pass myself off as an ultra geeky tourist if I need to. Hope that works.

I've got an idea, but I may not be able to finish in time (might not even get started). Unfortunately, I'm having MAJOR plumbing problems stemming from a frigid cold blast a couple weeks ago, that are setting me back bigtime (on everything).

Maybe you could just have someone reflect on what it would be like to be a dwarf.

Funky way to work -

I found myself scoring the thing even before I have the script dialogue finished. It's funny, though. Music, like Cinema, is a temporal art, so I get to express the mood for the various "acts" before I shoot and edit, which works as a guideline for the shooting and editing process and sets the pacing for the piece.

Still, doing the score backbone first almost feels like shooting a videoclip.

Haha, so did I. I don't know if I'll use it, though. Maybe just on the site.

Wow! I did the same thing. Now I've got a music track and ..... nothing, so far. My "talent" keeps disappearing on the weekends. I may have to do this one myself. crap
