Trust, my short thriller film has once again hit upon delays and I still have not been able to conclude shooting on it. The amount of rage I feel is indescribable! Alas, there is in fact bright news! Light, my web series, is officially in pre-production. The scripts were completed a few months ago (though I still make little changes here and there) but I’ve just recently kicked it up a few notches. I’ve put out some casting calls and gotten some good people who’ve responded. The cast is being built which means that hopefully (though I do not plan on this) production could begin within the month! Wouldn’t that be lovely?
Light marks a huge step in my film making career. While I’m completely confident in my ability to make this into a wildly successful venture, it is my first time doing a project of this scale. All of the episodes when played back-to-back will eventually equal a feature length film (probably around 2 hours). I’m hoping to turn this blog into sort-of a production blog to keep track of all the developments and goings-on with the series as time progresses. This summer I really want to kick into production mode and get to shooting a lot of stuff. Plans are being made to shoot quite a few short comedies, Light (obviously), and of course the continuing adventures of Derek Turson in Gutter Trash!
Speaking of Gutter Trash, the new episode is finally out (I’ll post a link below)! I know, I know, there have been a lot of delays lately. However, I have a perfectly reasonable excuse! My lovely girlfriend Amelia Mitchell (who you can see in Small Talk, a short comedy film I co-wrote and directed) flew back to Germany on Friday for the next four months, so I had been trying to spend as much time with her as possible before she left and on top of that I was insanely busy with school and work! Alas, my fair maiden has flown to…fairer shores, and school is finally over. And so henceforth therefore, I will have plenty of time to develop a whole slew of projects this Summer that I can have in the can to begin premiering this fall!
That’s about all I have for now. Which is actually a lot as I look back on it. I hope all is well with all two of my readers! The Gutter Trash link will be below. Until next time, over and out!
