I've been secretly putting together a very talented team for the DV Mission 48hr film challenge. I originally entered in the (very) Low Tech section - just me, a scriptwriter with a mobile phone camera...
I put an ad out on the site to see if anyone was interested in joining my team and it kinda snowballed from there!
I thought it would be a great idea to do a trial run, to see if we can all work together and all the techie various bits 'n' bobs can actually electronically talk to each other etc, etc.
So, now we have a real "proper" Director, a real camera complete with an enthusiastic, hot young cameraman, a Musical Director with a Tardis load of sound fx and a super bossy uber furher producer to keep us all in check!
And we shoot tomorrow. My script. Sort of. The editing axe has been swung severely for "production reasons". Oh dear. Hope I don't let them all down...
Oh yeah, one more thing...
We've haven't got any thespians.
So now my good self, my lady wife, the lovely Mrs S, and Alex, our Musical director will play the parts.
http://www.thewriterstale.com/scr.html Six scripts from the great Sir Russell T. Davies, OBE, including "Midnight" a true Master class (pardon the pun) in tight, gripping writing. Pure Class. Top education. Read them!
Plot, Characters, all 3 acts in half a minute...Jennifer Shiman hilariously re-imagines two hour movies in just thirty seconds, and still retains the major plot points! Pitching masterclass for when that Exec says " You've got half of minute of my time."
