Day 137: Setback But Moving Forward

Today I have some bad news. Last week I was able to get a D.P. who agreed to help shoot the Indiegogo video this last Saturday. I was all ready to go in and shoot the video. I had my lines mostly down and I was ready. Alas, I can’t control the actions of other people and he did not show. This means that I sadly wasn’t able to shoot the Indiegogo video this weekend.

I’m still moving forward though. I’ll reschedule the shoot for a later date-right now I’m going to concentrate on getting the voice lines for the teaser part of the video. As a reminder this is my plan for the Indiegogo video:

[*] A teaser with shots of woods with lines of the characters over it.

[*] A video of me speaking to the camera selling the project to people.

Once I have the recording of the character lines, I’m hoping to also get shots of the woods. That’s about a quarter of the video that I’ll be concentrating now and is a key part of selling the project to people.

Today I went through and organized the submissions on Backstage. It’s not too late so submit: I am still accepting submissions! Having said that, it is time for me to start making decisions.

Day 136: Final Prep Day

Tomorrow is finally the day where I shoot the Indiegogo pitch video. I’ve gone through the lines today. I continued to work on my appearance-for instance, I got a haircut and finalized my wardrobe for tomorrow. I’ll continue to get ready for the rest of the day but I wanted to release this quick update.

Hopefully the shoot goes well tomorrow!

Update on Crew:

I still need a boom mike operator to join the crew but if I don’t find anyone, I’ll have to cross that bridge tomorrow.

Update on Casting:

I’ve gotten many auditions for some of the roles (Odessa/Austin/Computerized Message) but I could still use more auditions for Laredo/Dallas/Houston/Antonio! Thanks to everyone who has auditioned so far though! I can’t wait to really go through all of the submissions!

Day 135: Prep Work

I continued to work on getting as familiar with the lines as I can before Saturday. I’ve also started to prepare my appearance for the shoot: trying to make myself as presentable as possible and going through possible wardrobe options. I’ll keep doing prep work tomorrow.

Update on Crew:

It looks like I’m going ahead with the Saturday shoot! I have locked in and confirmed a Director of Photography who will help set up the shoot and film it. I still need a boom mike operator to join the crew but if I don’t find anyone, I’ll have to cross that bridge on Saturday.

Day 134: Saturday Shoot

Today I started going over the script for the Saturday shoot: this is an important part of the video so I want to get as familiar with the lines as possible. I might make some small alterations of the script but for the most part I’m just going over the lines and even practicing how to say them in front of a mirror.

Day 133: Updates

Update on Crew:

I am still waiting to get final confirmation or hear back from people so I haven’t locked the crew down yet. That’s part of the reason these updates are coming later: waiting to hear back from other people. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to confirm at least part of the crew for the shoot by the end of day tomorrow. If you’d like to join the crew, please get in touch with me! I still need people!

Day 132: Crew

So I do have some updates on the search for a crew for this weekend: I’m actually pretty close to getting a camera person! I still need someone for audio but if I can lock in a camera person over the next couple of days, then I think I’ll be able to get a boom mike operator. If not, I’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it.

If you’d like to help out for the shoot this weekend, it’s not too late to volunteer! Just send me a message. Please feel free to get in touch with me! I’d also like to thank everyone who has been helping me over the last couple of days/weeks: I really appreciate it!

A note:

[*] Thank you to everyone who has auditioned so far! As a note, I don’t plan on really reviewing the submissions until February rolls around. If you are interested in auditioning, please click the arrow to the right of the screen and click the link to go to the Backstage page. I especially need submissions for Houston, Laredo, Antonio, and Dallas.

Day 131: Crew Update

Okay so I still haven’t found a crew. I do have feelers out there, thanks to my friends who have been very helpful in trying to find people who can help me, so I’m going to give it the weekend before making any decision about shooting the Indiegogo video on January 30th. I might just have a crew one of one, someone to handle the audio, while I handle the camera. It’s not the ideal scenario but that’s life for you.

If you can help, I could certainly use you! Feel free to contact me at any time!

I also had some positive meetings with some people and I’m feeling pretty positive about the project!
