...And very little has changed with regard to the development of my feature film (now called "In The Light of Day" or simply "LOD").
Still, it's been a bit of busy year for me and my film making activities...
Late last year I teamed up with Boston area filmmaker Kevin Anderton and his Midnightchimes troupe to produce a few projects. Kevin's a fun, creative guy to work with and I think we did some fun (and funny stuff).
I started work on a new documentary called "The Silver Eagle Story". I cut a short form intro version of what I've shot thus far and posted it on a web site called "crackle.com" where it was featured in the "Movies and TV" section.
I also directed my first music video, "Galaxy Girl" which took second place in the ourstage.com music video competition for April, 2007.
The other thing of note was that I was interviewed by ourstage.com on their "Sunday Brunch" feature which was fun. Its always nice to get a little recognition for your efforts.
I've also been doing a ton of editing for various projects. It's sort of interesting that I'm doing as much editing as I am. I never really thought I'd get into it like I have, but as I tell everyone, in the world of indie film making, you have to learn to do it all or sometimes nothing gets done. :)
I've not been doing nearly as much writing (or directing for that matter) as I'd like in the past few months, but I plan on getting back to it ASAP. The easiest thing in the world is to not write and when you don't, you skills get dull. I plan to start to work on my chops a bit more through both blogging and getting back to screenwriting. I've a lot of ideas that I want to work into LOD, and a idea or two for a short film (and another feature) so I want to get back to it soon.
I think that before James and I embark on LOD, we need a tune up film or two so that we can get back into the groove, and shorts are a great way to "tune up". I've got a couple that I'll be trying to get done over the next couple of weeks or so. We'll see how successful I manage to be in that endeavor.
More to come...
