About

One Man Movie (OMM) is a short, 6-8 minute action flick that is being made entirely by myself. I'm doing the writing, directing, acting, editing, music, graphics, and promotional stuff with no help from anyone else. And no, I did not build the camera from scratch, write the software, create the fonts, effects packs, nor the characters clothing. Those are all props and tools. What's a man without his tools? Despite the the short length of the film, it will be weeks (months?) from now before it is completed due to the technical craziness required in order to have multiple characters played by the same person coexist and interact on the same screen. It shouldn't be a problem though. Just time consuming. This blog will follow my day-to-day experiences on developing and releasing the film, mainly because I need SOMEONE to rant to so I don't leak it to real life people. I started the project in early September, when I wrote the story and created the musical score. From then until late September, I fleshed out the story, collected props, and finally bought a slightly better camera. Filming began in late September.

Countdown to Production... 3! (not days, steps)

First day of Autumn. In Arizona, that means it's the first day with high temperatures below 90. But it's still gonna get up to 97 later this week, what a shame. It really should be cooler by now.

As promised, here's the fake pistol pics. You might notice my poor spraying job, but to be fair, this was the first time I've spraypainted anything.


The camera will arrive on Thursday or Friday. The toy M16 should arrive early next week. That gives me little time to find a filming location and create the last prop, but I can still shoot some of the scenes as early as Saturday or Sunday. Once that happens, "pre-production" is "over", and this blog will probably be changed into the "One Man Movie - Development Blog." How exciting. I'll reveal a ton more information to you guys, stuff that my real life audience is clueless about. Note that most of my friends and peers have no idea about this project, and being the loud-mouth that I am, I've needed this blog to keep things, and continue keeping things, under wraps. So thank you.

  2. Those don't look too badly painted. Especially if you take into consideration the fact that they will likely be held in a hand or possibly holstered so it really won't be noticed.

  15. Hmm. Thought I posted here the other day but maybe I meant to. Anyway they look good and are not bad given it being your first time spray painting anything. Not to mention the fact they will probably be in your hand a or in holsters.

  18. Try some really fine sandpaper, you might have success smoothing out the paintjob. Try on one of the clips first in case it doesn't work out.
