Scene Filmed

It’s late, and I’m sick. I know I should be drugged and resting, but I can’t sleep, so I thought I would catch you folks up on what’s been going on with the movie.

It all started on Thursday, the 16th. I had resolved to go to Birmingham to hang out with Spencer, Matt, and Ryan. My reason for going was to film a scene for my as-yet-untitled movie, a scene that involved both my friend Nick and his son Conor. Ashley, my sister, and Spencer was to play a married couple in the scene.

Thursday night, I picked my sister up from class, and we headed to Birmingham after slight delay. When we got there, we hung out with Ryan, Spencer, Matt, and Jade, as well as Bailey, Brooke’s sister (Brooke is the woman who lives below Matt, Ryan, and Spencer).

Friday, the 17th:

I don’t remember most of the day, but we set up shop in the apartment–we were readying ourselves for the shoot when Nick gave us the bad news via his cellphone, that Kellee (his wife) had taken the car seat with her. He would be unable to bring Conor over. With friend Tricia in tow, we drove to Nick and Kellee’s apartment, and prepared to shoot the scene. Three hours later, we called it a wrap. I think it went well.  Now to edit…

Haunted By The Left Unsaid

Jeremy is basically discouraging me from doing the movie, and he makes a good case that I won’t be able to do it. Maybe I’m fooling myself, eh?

My computer is still sick, and now it looks like I’m going to have to find another job, all while going to school. Do I really have the time and attention it would take to make a movie? Really!? I don’t know. I’m not sure anymore. I’m just not sure.

By the way–what happened to motivation? I seem to be lacking in it lately. Lacking motivation and drowning in disillusion and denial.

I’m still planning on the movie for now. But that might change by the end of tonight.
