Sorry about the lack of a post yesterday. I had 4 tests to study for. I'll be sure to catch up on everyone later this evening.
So Thursday morning went great. I pessimistically drove down to the northeast corner of town at 6 in the morning and shot the missing sub-scene from the first part. My morale raised greatly after that. These last couple-a-days have just felt really good, though editing hasn't sped up significantly.
Thankfully, I have no homework this weekend. Tonight, I hope to complete all the editing for what I have shot this week (like 30 edit-heavy seconds for those who are new to the blog, or don't read it often), so I can begin shooting new stuff tomorrow. The pace may pick up from there, but unforeseen challenges might lay in my path.
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.
