Anita and I organized a wine+cheese table read with our cast over the weekend. It was the first time the cast was assembled in one room and there was a great energy to the event. Everyone settled in nicely into their respective roles, bringing a unique voice to their character. After the first read through it became clear, that the project had become more than an abstract idea; it was now a very real thing.
Woo-hoo. First week into our campaign and some wonderful people have already taken us 1/6th of the way to our goal. Someone up there likes us! Jump on the bandwagon and let’s make some movies.
The Talent Scout is well into pre-production and with a cast and crew in place, we’re turning to the internet – 21st century’s go-to resource – to help us make budget. That’s right, you – dear web user – can make history by contributing to our IndieGoGo campaign. Visit the site to lend your support; see what wonderful perks await handsome, charming contributors like yourself! We have a mere 30 days to reach our target, so every minute counts.
A couple weeks ago I flew down to Calgary, Alberta and toured the surrounding area, gathering footage for the film I’m co-directing, “The Talent Scout.” We drove up and down looking for motels to give the story that “road film” feel.
It was a hot day and the sky was big and open. We drove until our shirts clung to our backs and hair stuck to our foreheads with sweat. It became a real road trip, which only added to the delight of making a film; of taking a camera into the world to see what it has to offer.
I have my parents to thank for showing me the sights. They know the area well and it was their fine efforts that made the trip worthwhile.
