Getting closer to the finish line

So, yes, it has definitely been a while sense there has been a solid update but, I promise, progress is happening!!

Currently I am working on the DVD design of the film and then I will be able to get my film out there! AMiL is tired of being all cooped up on my computer!

After the Second Rough Cut

 

I can not deny how difficult it is to make a movie. In film, 30 seconds feels like a life time and my film is 31 minutes! It is so easy to watch a movie and say to yourself “I could do that”. NO YOU CAN NOT!! Well okay maybe you could but it would not be as easy as you would think sitting there in your PJ’s, chomping on popcorn.

My biggest worry at this point, being that I have finished my second rough cut, is dealing with the vastness of this whole thing.  I get burnt editing 8 minutes or just one scene, let alone 31 minutes or 20 scenes.  I can see myself fine tuning the bar scene or the park sections but getting to every section, catching every mistake and fix all that needs it. Huh its exhausting just thinking about it! But I think to when its all done, when I am holding the finished DVD in my hand and I like. I want to get the that point, I can’t wait to get to that point! I just have to push myself and all I have to say at this point is:

BUY ME FINAL CUT PRO

Last Couple Scenes

Due to a health issue on my part, the cast, crew and I were unable to finish filming during the production quarter of the project.  It forced us to take about a month break from the film, giving us, like I said, a little break, allowing us to be able to take a fresh look at these last few scenes we had to put on hold.

Below are stills from the past shoot.

Currently I am in the editing process, as this quarter is all to do with post production. As I continue to piece the puzzle that is my Senior project together, filming will continue as needed. Whether its changing things that seemed a good idea at the time or adding things that may have been forgotten we will all get back together to finalize the masterpiece.

End of the Quarter

Again I can not thank everyone enough for all the time and effort you all have put into my film.  Getting up early for 7:00am shoots, traveling to more distant locations, Staying up late for night shoots, and just putting up with me!! This whole experience has been incredible and I could not have done it without all of you guys!!

I have posted a few screen captures of some of the most recent shoots, the past few days we have shot the initial scenes of the film set in the apartment and hallway. Also we shot the “morning after the kiss” scenes as well as the “attempt at inviting Sam to run”.  Take a look at the photos and let me know what you think!! I’m always open to any critique you can give.

Thursday June 9th was the last scheduled filming date for the quarter, and I can honestly say that it feels good to have over 90% of my film shot and behind us!! But 90% is not finished and that means that we still have 2 days of filming ahead.  After reviewing the footage it has been decided that we would like to re-shoot the café scene and, due to a shoot cancelation on my part, we need to find time to make up a missed date in the filming schedule. However, because it is the end of the quarter filming will stop for the next 4 weeks as equipment will not be available for check out.  Enjoy the break everyone!!! I will be sending out dates to finish the last few scenes very soon.
