So there isn't loads to report this week as predicted. I'm still waiting for the rough sound edit to be finished so we can make the rough picture edit a locked picture edit and move onto the final sound mix and other things preceded by the word 'final'. Meanwhile Brother Pete has been working on re-editing the musical sequence.
Friday night we had a kind of reunion as I needed actors for a readthrough of another script I'm working on and recruited a few of Jenny Ringo's stars. It went really well, although it also highlighted some of the problems with the script. This was the point of the exercise but I was secretly hoping it would come out perfect and nothing else would need to be done. At the same time it was a lot of fun and nice to be working with the same people again on a completely different project.
Next weekend we're doing a photo-shoot for the poster and associated promotional material, which is one of those things that perhaps isn't essential at the moment but will be useful later on.
I'm ridiculously close to getting 100 fans on the Facebook page, so if you haven't signed up yet and want to see more photos and stuff it's here.
That's it for now, but there will be another post to follow. I've been reading Mark Moynihan's filmmaking blog for his short Little Things and it has inspired me (or rather I'm shamelessly stealing his idea) to feature some guest posts from some of the people who worked on the film. I'll be posting the first of these shortly.
