With the plan to shoot The Character Study at the end of the month still on track, preparations are under way. I've made more phone calls to the police this week than normal, which I guess isn't that surprising. Ju and I checked out the Vancouver police museum to check out some uniforms they've agreed to rent to us for our actors. They have a very cool collection, and not just from Canada; They even had an old German military-looking uniform. I'll keep that in mind for next time.
I feel very fortunate to have a talented production crew that is so generously donating their time and energy to the project. All this work is sure to pay off, and I can't wait to see what we can do.
I was pretty happy to learn that I won the Vimeo Weekend Challenge from a few weeks ago. The theme was to create a short centered around the concept of pause consisting of 5 five-second clips with in-camera audio. Now I have another year of Vimeo Plus for free! Sweet.
This project is what got me inspired to build on it and create the short I posted last time, Things I Hope Remain.
Ju is cooking up a delicious Tofurkey roast dinner and the smell of mushroom gravy keeps wafting into the bedroom. Must. Control. Hunger.
Ah, fuck it. Goodbye.
