Let's cut it

Right, it has taken me a few days to recover from the shoot. Not that it was hard work in itself, but all the pre-production and me juggling lots of bowling pins in the air was tiring. I've returned to work, but that seems like rest compared. I have a day off tomorrow to actually get my sh** together, then more work over the week end. But on monday I should catch up with Nic Wassell, my friend, work colleague and fellow filmmaker (and film editor for Fallen and now for It So Happens) to start looking at the rushes and at editing the new baby. Can't wait. Onward and upwards!

"It So Happens" (a new short)

Pre-production is now finished (in record time I may add -- 2 intense weeks) and production begins tomorrow at 8.30am. "It So Happens" is a new short film about Mickey, an 11 year old boy, who has some rather macabre daydreams involving his ever-arguing parents.

Gabrielle Reidy and Gary Lilburn play the argumentative parents and their son Finn will play Mickey. We shoot in 1 day and in 1 location. We will have zombie and vampire make-up, a bit of gore and blood... blood...

I now better go to sleep as the clocks go forward and getting up at 6am in fact means being up at 5am on my biological clock. There simply aren't enough hours in a day, but we even lose one, so a tough one for me and my fellow crew and cast members for a Sunday shoot.

I'll post some photos after the shoot.

Good night all!
