Like a crazy overexcited Aunt who never gets to see her nieces, I over-promised to two of my nieces that they could be in this movie. However, now we cannot make that happen and I've had to disappoint them. In an effort to make it up to them, i'm starting a few segment of these blogs called Dear Sophie and Parker. Please check out their own section on the home page...
We're in the midst of preproduction and I thought I'd just note all that we have yet to do... in as brief of a post I can manage. I don't know why I'm focusing on things left to do. We've done so much and I'm so proud of this group of filmmakers I am working with! But, maybe just to remind myself (and maybe my mom? who may be the only one reading this) that there's time and there's plenty to do. So...
- We're still locking down two final actors (but we have offer letters out)!
- We have no locations, yet!
- We're bringing on final members of the crew - most specifically we need costume/wardrobe and a DIT right now...
- I need to shot list!!!
- There are a few script changes I want to make still. Housekeeping kind of stuff but that's overdue.
Today we're doing a crew screening of ANOTHER EARTH because I have never seen it and am such a fan of SOUND OF MY VOICE.
We're making a movie, folks! It's called SPEED OF LIFE and it'll be a 12 day shoot in April in Los Angeles and I am psyched.
