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.

Monday 10/4 - Split Screen scene?

Weird day. There was an assembly at school.

Apparently, everyone was misbehaving at the assembly. Some seniors ripped a sign that the juniors made that apparently said something bad about the seniors. Both seniors and juniors were throwing balls all over the place, and one of them hit the principal on the head. So the principal has cancelled all future assemblies, dances, and other such gatherings. I don't give a fuck, because all these school events, "senior hype", and other such things are stupid and pointless. But it IS interesting that an inter-class war appears to be brewing.

Meanwhile, the movie progresses slightly. The very last scene for last weeks "first 50 seconds" has been properly filmed and edited! Now just various tweaks and that portion of the movie is done.

But my computer/Sony Vegas is going through hell just trying to render low-quality versions of what I've filmed. I think I'm gonna need more RAM.

Also, I filmed a new 10-second scene today. I decided to do something different by having a split-screen, kinda 24-esque, except instead of being in real-time, it conveys the story more like a comic book would. Dunno if it works or not. You can help decide... tomorrow. I'm too tired to... finish this post.
