I’m not ignoring you. I haven’t blogged in awhile because this film has consumed me. Since we last spoke, we’ve found our location and set a start date. Now I’m spending every waking minute doing all the things that need doing to get us there. And, since I only sleep about five hours a night, that’s a lot of waking minutes.
Today I’m ensconced on a coffee shop couch in London, because there’s no interwebs where I’m staying. I like this place. So far I’ve scored six hours of internet for the price of a medium latte and the baristas have not made me feel guilty. I’ve spoken to actors, tweaked the script, and reviewed CVs from people who want to come work with us. I’ve done a little edit on our Indiegogo video (more on that tomorrow), put out a couple of fires, and had a Spiderman baseball cap land in my lap, courtesy of the really cute little boy across the room.
This is what it means to do a low-budget film. To be writer and director (willingly) and a producer (reluctantly). Lucky for me there are two other producers who are working just as hard as I am to birth this baby. Lucky for me we are a kickass team.
Because this is filmmaking.
I'm the writer-director and more or less the mother of this film.
