A Gathering Storm Of Hopefully Adept Filmmaking

Click on pic for larger foreboding

My friend Lance, who is going to be doing the photography on my upcoming short film, came down to my work yesterday so we could both visit the deserted industrial location I had scouted (he hadn't seen it in person yet).

Unfortunately, Lance had to sit around for 45 minutes or so while I scrambled around and tried to get a bad IT situation under control.

Finally, after my horrific 12-hour workday ended, we walked out and I took the above picture.

Lanced liked the industrial location for the most part. I have a sort-of risque shot of some bare asses in a commercial shopping area, a shot that I would like to try to fake at the industrial location. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything really appropriate to serve as a shopping district background.

After the NYC trip and some recent family stuff, I am finally able to fully concentrate on this movie. It's going to be difficult, it's going to be a challenge, but I hope it will be fun, too.

I'll try my best at providing some periodic updates as to my progress, so you can more easily graph my descent into madness.

Let me know when you get done with the film and we'll talk about showing it at our film festival this year or next if you want.

beth, thanks kindly.

dr mvm, aw shucks, that's very, very kind of you to say. I hope to make a movie worthy of your festival.

Cool snapshot.

I was at work when that storm blew in, and was kind of creeped out by what a perfect dark wall it formed as it rolled across town. What was really spooky was that after the first part passed us it got real dark and quiet and didn't start raining and thundering for a minute or two. It really had that creepy end-of-the-world vibe.
