Word of the Day

September 30, 2009

Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day today is “gaucherie.”  A few months too late for many of the guys auditioning last March.

In Other News…

September 7, 2009

I wrote a feature script called Jesse’s Girl.  I really wanted to direct it, so I had planned on shooting a scene to demonstrate what it would look like.

Coincidentally, Becca (who cast and even performed in Asleep with the Angeles) needed a new scene for her reel.  I showed her a copy of the script, she liked it, and here is the result–

The guy in the scene is Casey Coleman, a friend from college who also did with the production design on the Monster Energy commercials.  His fiancée, Janine Worrell, edited it.  She also edited The Runner (more of which will be coming online soon, I hope).

Mike Kuhn shot it.  He was a cameraman, grip, and electric on Angels.  Seth Fortin was a likewise griptrician on both this and Angels.

Basically, the only person I hadn’t worked with before was Sam Maples, and even she was an intern on 24.

Yeah, I’m afraid to meet new people.

Movies and Music, Together at Last!

September 2, 2009

I know I promised the first half of the movie two weeks ago, but now I’ve got something better… The Whole Movie!

Okay, okay, it’s not done done, but it’s at least watchable.  Pez’s music really moves the story along.  I can’t imagine the movie without it, now.  (Well, I can imagine it, but I don’t like to.)

Anyway.  There’s still a few things to work out.  Obviously, all of the screens (Shooter’s cell phone, Archie’s laptop, etc.) need to be filled in.  Muzzle flashes and blood splatters need to be added.  The sound mix needs to be evened out (notably, Archie’s dialogue in his house).  And, of course, the color correction right now is of the “color-goes-here” variety.

But, like I said, this version actually looks like a movie.  We’re getting there.

Enjoy!
