I Am Going To Make A Movie

I am going to make a movie. It sounds strange to me. I have a BA in Cinema from Southern Illinois at Carbondale, but I never really wandered too far down that path.

But I have written the script for a short film, and I plan on filming it this summer.

I have a couple actors already lined up. I have a cameraman who has his own equipment. I have another cameraman lined up as well. I have a makeup person lined up. I have shooting dates scheduled.

I still have much preparation to do.
  • Finish my 3rd draft of the script
  • Storyboard the script
  • Scout locations
  • etc. etc. etc.

Still, I am going to make a movie. I'm not going to go into the details of the plot at this point, but I might upload a couple pics from the storyboard-in-progress to tantalize, enchant and frighten you with.

I'm very proud of the script, and I think it could be a great short film, but it's all in the execution, folks. It's all in the execution.

We'll see. More to come.

I'll be happy to do some background artist work on your project. I don't act, but I can cross a street or hail a cab with the best of them.
