Notes from my kitchen table…
I finally gained Login ability, so here’s my first update.
I’m excited and grateful to be a member of this group. It’s such a fresh relief to be working with passionate and creative people again, and I’m excited about A Door Closes. The shots that Stalin and Kelvin and the crew put together for the flashback sequence look great, and I’m looking forward to seeing all the stuff we shoot next week.
I’m really excited for Hales, because–for the first time–she gets to see her script produced! That must be a great, exciting feeling! I just hope we can make her proud.
On another note, I’m working on my 24 Frames project this weekend. I’ve done all the shooting I need, now it’s time to assemble and time it. Even though this is probably the easiest part, it still seems quite daunting because I’m not crazy about the shots I got. It’s my own fault, of course. For some reason, I thought it would interesting to work with a six year old boy as my main character. The shoot went tolerably well, but getting him to focus and “perform” was quite an ordeal. Plus, the location I chose (Main St. in Houston) turned out be a lighting nightmare. Half the location was in shadows, the other half was not. Ugggghhhh….
But how bad could it be, right?
I’ll answer that question in a couple of days.
Meanwhile, here’s a shot of my leading actor, waiting for his cue.
