I just realized last night how long it's been since I shot something. I think the last day of shooting for the 3D Movie was late-October? I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it was at least around Halloween.
So I've been gearing up all week to get ready for the first shoot for Grayson & Gortch. The script is done, aside from the final fight and epilogue, but this will come pretty soon - no worries since the final fight is the last thing we'll shoot. I've got about a month before I have to wrap it all up.
Most of the props are taken care of, I'll be working the last few out next week. And I've finally gotten the perfect foam latex, so that's a huge relief. I'll be cranking out as many as I can next week as well. I still need to make some molds for a could but I reckon all the molds will be made by end of next week too. It'll be a busy week
Casting is wrapped up as well, I think there's 2 roles I'm unsure of - mainly because I'm having trouble finding just the right person to fill them, but I've got a few ideas rattling around.
Locations are nearly taken care of as well. I lucked out this week and came up with, what I think, is a great location for a gun fight scene between Gortch and 3 drug dealers. We'll be shooting it in a car salvage yard, my main concern was finding an interesting looking place with lots of cover for a gun fight and I can't think of anything better. This should turn out to be a pretty cool scene.
And as far as Breath of the Dead goes, things are working well for that too. Most of our locations are taken care of, hopefully we'll have casting wrapped up in another week and I'm hoping to start in on making the props and whatnot in the next 2 weeks.
This is the first time I've allowed two projects to overlap like this. I've had a few overlap as far as post and pre production, but not like this. So far it hasn't been too bad, I'm feeling productive at least while I have the time.
And the website. Right now, if you've not seen it yet, it's pretty simple. I took the time this weekend to re familiarize myself with the whole website building crap. Can't say it's awesome fun, but I think I've got a decent site worked out. Not very polished or high end looking, but I'm happy with it, it's nice and simple - no flash or crappy plugins or apps, just straightforward html. I might jazz it up later on, but for now I just want a decent, easy to navigate site to host the movies on and hopefully sell some stuff.
It should be online within the next week if I get the kinks worked out. I'll let you know.
