Hello Eternal Campers! Today I finished editing the shot list to ensure that it’s completely up to date! This basically means that all material that’s been affected by the recent script change has now been updated. This means that starting in the new year, we can start making some more progress on the Eternal Camping project.
I’m going on my holiday break starting tomorrow so this is the last Eternal Camping update of the year. I will be back on working on the project in about two weeks! So until then: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Hello Eternal Campers! I finished editing the second act of the shot list. That leaves only the third act for tomorrow. It’s actually kind of interesting going through every single shot this way: I’ve actually changed a couple of them around. This is to avoid having shots that are too similar to each other but also to clarify what I meant sometimes. Having to make sure that the shot list accurately reflects the script is actually improving the project. That can only be good.
Hello Eternal Campers! I hope you are all having a good day! I continued work on updating the shot list following script changes. I’m now well into the second act of the shot list and I’ve already gone through more shots than I can count. I believe I should definitely be done editing the shot list by Thursday. I know this isn’t the most exciting update but hopefully we can start making more progress when the new year comes!
Hello Eternal Campers! I feel that’s what I should call fans of the movie, Eternal Campers. It kind of just fits if you ask me.
As you know, I recently switched character names in the Eternal Camping script based on a note I got from a potential producer. This also prompted a couple weeks of edits in the script. I also edited the marketing materials. I also have a giant shot list that references the characters by name. As you can imagine, this will get confusing. I went into the shot list and started changing the names. I went through the whole first act.
At this rate, I should finish by Thursday. On Friday, I’m going to begin my two-week Christmas break and then I’ll be back to work on Eternal Camping.
I can finally say that I have finished the shot list! That final scene I was holding out for today comes in at 77 shots-I think that’s the scene with the most shots. There’s a chance more shots will be added later or when we actually shoot but that’s the minimum number of shots I need to make the scene work. Anyways, I’m actually kind of in amazement that I’m 63 days into the project. In that timeframe, I’ve written a script, worked up a very rough budget, and now have a shot list. I’m happy that I’m continuing to make progress on the script!
I can say that tomorrow, I will finally finish the shot list that I’ve been working over the last couple weeks. I really only have one scene left to do-the climax of the movie and the longest scene in the script. I decided to do every other scene in the movie first so that I could concentrate all of my energy to making sure that final scene works just right.
On Friday, I’ll do a quick overview of where I am in the project, try to see if the person looking over my budget has finished, and draw up a plan on what part of the project to concentrate on next.
I’ve managed to finish the preliminary shot list for the second act leaving just the last act for me to do-something I’m hoping to finish within the next couple of days. I was also excited because today I got to do one of the biggest scenes in the movie-the one where I really raise the stakes for the kids. That scene was already pretty clear how it’s going to look like in my mind but it was still nice to actually put that to the list.
