Sloooooowly we roll along

The rough draft for the film is being edited by two wonderfully talented friends of mine.  I'm so excited to read all of their red ink, because it will help me learn and it will make the film better.  I only hope the ridiculous formatting isn't too much of a distraction for them.  That is a long, long story I won't subject you to at this time.

I FINALLY found a location that would work!  I only hope I can jump through the hoops and get approval to do it there.  I live in a very small (population 5500) town, so I'm limited on places that have the look, feel, lighting etc that I need.  If I was filming something involving farms I would be set.  :)

I'm still quite nervous about the technical aspects of the filming and editing.  I keep planning to sit down and play around with the editing software some more but so far life conspires against me.  Today the problem was that I had to clean out my kitchen cabinets and make them, um, shall we say, less rodent friendly.  One of the "perks" of living in the country -- wildlife!

The rough draft for the script is done!  Hurray!  Time to celebrate!  

Pizza and my favorite Mediterranean Chicken Salad will be delivered shortly.  We'll even leave some pizza for Clinton for when he gets home tonight, as he's had a rough day of planting with lots of equipment breakdowns. He'll be finished soon, we hope.

It feels good to have that part accomplished.  Now the editing begins, along with continued work on props, locations to shoot, finding actors, etc.  I do have an excellent lead on music (thanks, Dave!), and I'm completely psyched about that.  In my mind's eye I can see the shots with the music and it's going to ROCK!  Exactly the effect I'm looking for.

The details will all fall into place in their own time.  Right now it's time to relax and switch off my brain for a while.
