We will have our first table read with the principle cast on Wednesday. I've also brought Paul Burt on board to help scout locations and find people for the remaining crew positions. He's a good guy, and I'm glad to have him helping out.
And one week from today, our IndieGoGo fundraising campaign ends. We're still a very long way from reaching our goal, so if you can contribute, please do! Any donation will be appreciated. Five bucks, ten, whatever you can spare. And please help spread the word.
The big thing I'm doing this weekend is drawing overhead diagrams for all the planned shots. The idea is to draw what is essentially a map of each scene to show the crew where the actors and camera will be for every camera set-up. It helps the assistant director to plan what order to actually film the shots. And it's a useful tool on set. So right now, I have Simon & Garfunkel on my stereo, and I'm drawing floor plans -- even for the locations we haven't booked yet.
Speaking of which, we still need locations for an art gallery and a mental hospital or rest home. If you have ideas or connections, please contact me right away.
Now, back to work ...
