Heh, if only.

It's not so much a nervous thing as a too many thoughts at once, with too many words to describe said thoughts, thing.

Basically, if the subject is a penny laid on a train track, my first thought is the first train and all of the words to describe that thought are the cars of that train. There's thirty trains heading down the same track, back to back, at speed...

Adding alcohol just makes the impending train wreck hilarious so, yeah, highly recommended.

Skipped most of my workday to get out on the trail and film! After reviewing all of the footage I think I'm all but done. I do need four more easy shots with two of my actors that I'll get once we get back from vacation, but those are quick and easy. Otherwise, I have a short film in post production!

It was the hottest day of the year, so far.
The mosquitoes ate us alive.
I dragged my actor over a wasp nest getting him stung twice.
We got kicked off of a private road while filming.
It was a good day.

Slowly editing the new footage into their respective positions whenever I get a free moment. I have a lot of catch up I have to do at work which is consuming most of my life, I apparently can't leave these children (tattooers) alone for a week and expect a functioning shop. How the fuck these artists manage to survive their own lives without a babysitter, I'll never know.

I like how my name is on the thread so every time Lance drags this project towards the finish line with his teeth, I get to feel a sense of achievement.

And, you have an "and" writing credit on the opening so, there's that. :D

Editing hurts.

I am happy with the way it's coming together. I moved a few sequences around to make it flow a little better, dropped a shot here and there. Still trimming and tightening up this and that, coloring, working on sound. Man, there's a lot that goes into films. I still have a total of ten shots with the other actors left to fill the storyboard but they're easy shots and I'm working on getting those shortly (maybe even this weekend). The story works without them but I think it will lack a little something, so I want them. I hope to have a finished short film by end of summer/early fall, sooner if I can get the shots and some free time from work.

You ain't kiddin. Physically it hurts too, when you've done it for a week straight without moving.

Glad it all is coming together on your own terms. It's a helluva experience putting something like that together, which seems easy from the outside, but you'll look back on it like - wow, holy fuck that seemed like a lot of effort at the time. I'll still look at Apocalypse from time to time and think the same thing. It's like raising a child and making sure they survive through college. Takes years off your life, but hey - at least you've (almost) got a movie now!

Congrats on getting to the fun bit!

This is where a film actually comes together.

Well, I'm just waiting on one small sequence of shots with one actor. I'm contemplating just throwing on a wig, dying my beard (temp), setting up the shots, and having the wife hit record. There's no close up shots so I think I can pull it off.

Otherwise, the film is mostly edited. I keep going back to fiddle with this and that in the timeline but it's all there. Working on laying in the audio effects and music score, which I need to double check to make sure I can actually use. Then there's a couple of simple VFX to slap together, credit everyone, get permissions from a certain social media site to use their UI for one shot, and figure out how to get it up for private viewing so you guys can let me know whether it's worth getting it ready to submit to film festivals or just slap it up online in hopes to generate views. In any case it will be available to view for all here.

Two years for an 11 min. short film. In that time I have:
Re-Roofed my house by myself (mostly), leveled my back yard, built a shed, scraped and painted (some of) my house, dealt with a car accident and replacing my wife's car, re-financed my house, driven to L.A. and back, and kept my job and family intact with all of the extra curricular activity that entails.

I have a ton of other film projects swirling around in the ol' noggin but, before I redirect any effort to developing those ideas, I have to finish this first.

Soon.

Sounds about right :)
Keep going!
