Making Movies

I’m going to make a movie. I will keep you posted on the progress, but don’t expect things to develop too fast. A lot depends on things beyond my control, thus I’ll try to keep a low profile. I can’t even rule out the possibility that the whole thing goes to hell at some point. But I’m motivated and hopefully everything’s going to work out the way I anticipate it.

A few months ago I wrote the screenplay. There have been a few minor and one major revision in the meantime and now it’s 21 pages long. Thus, the movie will clock in at 20 minutes, give or take a few. In other words, it’s going to be a short movie. It’s going to be shot this summer or maybe even earlier. Please don’t expect a professional picture, let alone a proper commercial release. It’s all about making a movie with some friends and having some fun. I don’t have anything that deserves being called film making experience, after all.

I’m currently assembling the cast; or rather beginning to assemble the cast. Then I’m going to figure out a schedule for the shoot. Once that’s settled, I’ll have to look for a location. Rehearsals with the cast come next, preferably right before the actual shoot. Then it’s time to let the fun begin and film the scenes. As of today, there are 27 scenes, a few long ones and a lot of short ones. Finally, the movie will be cut and the sound will be slightly modified (i.e., music will be added). Depending on the quality of the results, I’ll consider further proceedings.
