So I have started working on a 3 draft of the script that is just some changes to me the story work a bit better.
I also have sent out a casting call to get the actors from the film, I did want this to have been done by the end of last week so that put me a little bit behind where I wanted to be. But this has allowed me to build up the characters more, they will help the actors.
But the I do feel that the project is moving forward as I getting close to the filming dates.
I have got 2 people to read over my script and check for mistakes in the spelling/ grammar and if the dialog works or not. So I now have a second draft of the script and it also reads a lot better than it did. I also have start to sort out the information I need to put out a casting call for my actors.
Had a meeting with my composer to talk about the music for the film. We settled on a rough idea for the type of the music I wanting for the film. I also have had a actor drop of as they have got pay work come up when I going to film.
So I have hit the fist bump in the road to say but i will keep going.
So I have a first draft of the script that need to go over as there’s a lot of spelling and grammar changes needed. But it does give the idea of how the story is going to work and the rough running time of the film that is about 7 to 8 minutes.
Also been talking to the person doing the sound for the film, to get the gear need sorted out along with the date for filming.
For the cast of the film I have got 2 actors for the film already casted and I going to do a casting call for the other 4 characters this week.
So the last 3 day have been very useful and progest the film to the next point and i going to do some research into some film festivals to enter it in to when its finished.
So I have now got a 4 draft of my proposal that should be the final draft of it that allow’s me to get on with the script and finish writing the script. Also I have wrote up and looked at the results from my camera test the other. I am very help with the images that I am getting from the camera and how it is holding up in post. I am plane to get the script finished in the next couple of days. So I can start planing the filming days.
So today I did the second test shoots with my C100 MK2 in the studio and also out side with my family. I found the usual as it allowed me to experiment with the camera and also with some lighting.
Over all I found these test useful and I plan on doing a couple more most likely and also some grading test to find the grade for the film.
Did a discussion/ focus group talking about my film idea and proposal. I got some useful options for it in the age of the people I cast in the film. But as I have already developed my idea more than, I have stated in the proposal as the script has developed with the story. So I feel that the proposal is keeping me behind and delaying the time line.
But on a different note. I have moved forward with my script to the point of every close to having a 1 draft. This will allow me to start working to the shot list and also send out a casting call.
So I should have done one of theses last week but as I came down ill I there’s not one so heres the last to 2 week ish on progress.
Script I have a logline for the script that got the main events in and helping me structure the story. The script is starting to come along, its about 5 pages and at the start of the middle of the story. I am aiming for about 10 pages at the end.
Also been doing some research and looking at other film for inspiration. As well arranging someone to write and then record some music for my film.
So I have been making progress on the film.
