Sorry, I've had lots of homework lately so I'm once again behind schedule and am neglecting the blog and my followers. Actually, I don't have lots of homework, I've just had to memorize a 31-line-long monologue from a Shakespeare play for English. Hopefully I'll be free tomorrow, but my other classes have had a suspicious lack of homework this last few days, so it's likely I'll be ambushed by other assignments. Not stupid ones like this one though.
I AM done memorizing the assignment, but I have to retain the knowledge for another 15 hours, so I can't really read other things (your blogs) for now.
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.
