LSRS2 - Production Log #3: The Script

The script reading session was held yesterday night during our mX year end gathering. It felt different having the script on hand, as compared to reading off the computer screen. Naturally, some typos (there were two) were spotted.

I thought the casting for DICK and KONG were spot on :-D Well, it should be, since the characters were modelled after them (without the evil characteristics of course). We're also a bit off our planned short film duration of 15 minutes... it probably looks like a 20-30 minute short as of now. Looks like we've got to either tweak a bit to tighten up pacing, or shoot first and edit later.

Now we've got to sort out schedule conflicts, availability, confirm the other casting, location scouting, inventory check... lots to do before our first day of shoot (when ah??)

And oh yeah, just thought of a wicked ending for one of the characters who originally was just hanging there.. haha, and what's the moral of the story?!

LSRS2 - Production Log #2

It's already been tentatively titled, one word with an exclamation point. Might end up as the shooting title if we can come up with something better.

The rough cut script is ready, and I distributed it to massb and dgital, before I was reminded, and realized that there are certain issues left unaddressed, and certain scenes I had in mind which were omitted.

Hmm... should be able to wrap it all up tonight. Can't wait to see the reaction of the others who have not had a whiff of what's brewing yet. Will know this Friday when we par-tay!

And yes, we do need to script-read it to see if it can fall within 15 minutes.

LSRS2 - Production Log #1

After having so much fun with the Fly By Night competition, and developing The Undecided, we (massb, dgital, overider and myself) decided that we've got to follow up with another effort, and who knows, probably start making short films on a regular basis.

Somehow, overider's comment on his blog sparked off an idea which I shared with massb and dgital, and so here we are, still at the script stage. We should be on target to have the shooting script ready by 30th, where we'll be presenting to the other players who have been drafted (mostly voluntarily I'd like to think, haha) into production.

It's gonna be an insane Jan 06, but with the public holidays and long weekend, it presents a good opportunity to get things done :-) Cos the logistics, might be one heck of a pain!

The title, and premise is under wraps for now, so, until next time!
