Double or Nothing

September 27, 2010

Alright folks, time for another update. This week I’ll be talking about the GWP film, “There’s a Zombie at My Door”, as well as one of the films in progress that I am working on.

First up is “There’s a Zombie at My Door.” One of the things that have been taking some time has been the score. We’ve had someone outside of GWP working on the score, so I was a bit worried about how things would turn out. As of Yesterday we now officially have the score! I have yet to listen to it myself, but the person editing the film together has approved of the music himself.

Secondly, more news for the film. I recently got on a radio show called Transitions, a weekly internet radio talk show. While there I promoted “There’s a Zombie at My Door”. You can listen to the show and interview here.

Next on my list is the film I’ve been planning to write on my own. Well, it really is on my own. I contacted several people about it, but no one has responded to the first contact. One person seemed interested, but has yet to answer back about several questions. I’ve decided to get to work on this on my own since no one seems to want to go anywhere. Now, I could work with the people at GWP, but this is one project I want to do outside of GWP. GWP is mainly focused on low budget Comedy and Horror, and this film does not fit under this umbrella. Also, my main partner at GWP is timid when it comes to the idea of budgets and raising money, so he won’t be working on any budgeted films anytime soon.

I really broke off from everyone to write this script because I am tired of people being timid and unresponsive. I’ve been wanting to work on a film like this for a while, but the group of friends I made at college, a creative and ambitious lot in college, have become timid upon entering the real world. Recently many of them have become unresponsive to me as well. It seems they no longer have an interest in working on films, which leaves just me. Of course this doesn’t apply to every member of that group of friends I had. One of them has actually maintained that creativity and ambition from college. Sadly, that person isn’t a writer, more of an actress. However, she may be the one person in the group to have anything to do with this film after I’m done writing.

Monday afternoon update

September 20, 2010

Well, it’s Monday and it’s time for an update. In my last post I talked about three films, and I’m going to update you folks on them right now.

For the first film, There’s a Zombie at My Door, we’re still waiting on the score. we’re having trouble getting it from Person A to Person C via Person B. So the wait is still on. I’ll have a special post once we get the darned thing.

Okay film #2, or rather the film I’ve been thinking about working on myself. I’ve been researching a bit and found a couple of nifty things to help me in my quest to make a film. The first is the script writing software Celtx, a free script writing software that helps you keep everything organized, such as the script, character information, and even storyboards. I’ve also recently learned about crowd-funding sites like Indiegogo and Kickstarter. I plan to use these in making the film. I also have an idea of what the film is going to be, as well as a basic plot to the film. I’m currently waiting on someone I recently spoke to about writing a script to get back to me about some stuff then I’ll start on my script.

As for the third film. It’s still up in the air. I was about to declare the thing dead in the water, but I recently found out that the script writer did have their computer during that time. It may take a while for them to get back to the script, but the possibility is there.

Also, the GWP page has some news so take a peek over there.
