Been away from the blog for a couple days. Working on directing a new movie. And what a day we had today.
1) An actor went missing in Texas at the last moment [he was supposed to be in Maryland].
2) We got stuck with a hailstorm on what the script called for as a pleasant day.
3) We unintentionally were involved in a car crash en route to a location.
But worst of all: the lunch pizza was kinda lousy.
You see, I've noticed something about being on a film shoot: you tend to eat lots of pizza and junk food. This could help to explain all those hefty directors: Hitch, Peter Jackson, Michael Moore...
My buddy Chris and I decided back when we worked out how to shoot this film that our goal was to finish a full-feature film that would get distributed and make us enough money so that on our next film we could afford a car crash.
Alas, we got the car crash... just not the sort we intended.
Maybe we'll make our next goal to hire a catering truck.
