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.

Sunday 10/3 - Green Screens

I went to Office Depot today to buy neon green posterboards to use as green screens for the car scenes (ugh, unwanted rhyme). They were supposed to be 5 posterboards for 5 bucks, but they didn't even sell what they had on their website. And I had to wait an hour for them to open. So... I went to OfficeMax and bought 8 of them for 11-ish. Fair enough.

I did a little bit of filming today, re-shooting scenes that needed to be re-shot. There's still one more scene left from the first 50 seconds, but I have a group of small cuts on my face from shaving, and I'd really rather wait for them to heal. They'll be gone by tommorow or the next day.

So... time to relax. I'mma go catch up on my blog-reading.
