Two Weeks!

The script for The Assassin is finished. I'm getting really excited. Today I'll be checking out the top two or three hotels on my list. I'll also be buying some work lights and accessories. I'm going to talk to the Hoo-Haws at Fotovideo and see if I can rent a Panasonic DVX100B (camera) from them for the night of the shoot at a reasonable price.

Andrew will be playing the title role of The Assassin. Doug will be playing the heavy dramatic role of Chandler. Scott will be my entire crew. Go Scott! I'll have to make sure there's plenty of Miller Genuine Draft on hand for the shoot.

Next I'll be breaking down the script and making lists of costumes, props and equipment needed. Somehow I need to fabricate a fake handgun with a silencer and not spend any real money doing it. Herm. Water pistol, bristol board and black spray paint perhaps?

It's a Date!

It's showtime. On Monday Sept 14 we will be shooting a short film, 'The Assasin - Scene 27'. Scott and Doug are in for sure and I need one more participant. I should have the script printed out by tomorrow and I'll be going over parts, costumes and props in the coming weeks.

We'll be shooting with my crummy Panasonic GS-80. We'll put my nice Azden Microphone and boom pole to the test for the first time. We'll be recording sound wild on my Toshiba notebook.

Hopefully I'll have a location sorted out soon. I'm planning to use a hotel room. It's perfect. A safe, clean space where we can set up and work without interruption. Just have to figure out which hotel around here is best.

Soon you'll have something to watch!
