Making A Production Of It
We had our first big production meeting right before Thanksgiving at the Mars Bar! It was the first time most of the people from the different departments had a chance to meet each other and it became apparent what a great group of people we have working on this film (for those who didn’t already know)!
I took a small break for Thanksgiving weekend, where I tried to limit my film work to just a few items each day. It was hard not to obsess constantly over the film, but having Kirsten around helped! ; ) We even made a little gingerbread house.
We still have plenty to keep us busy before the shoot and I hope we’re able to at least cover the important stuff. We’ll start rolling film in just over a month and we still have to figure out our post production workflow, order the film stock, secure equipment and go on our location scout (we’re hitting the road for that Dec. 2nd), get winter chains for our little Tercel and figure out why it no longer wants to start, and of course figure out what to do with 16 people traveling from Oak Harbor, WA to Kernville, CA!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Things should get much more exciting on this blog in the next two months, I just hope I can keep up!
