aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand cut! That's a wrap!

So, I have some closure. I am freed at last from the fear of never finishing, and thanks be to a patient cast, (thank you Sam, especially, for putting up w/ moi) and the good graces of a benevolent God (the weather was kind), it's done, or as done as it will ever be.

I only wish I had invested in a camera years ago. I would have shot a thousand stories before now, and hopefully somewhat better than what I've done today. My sincerest apologies to all the student film-makers of past through future for having so sloppily concocted a premise. I'm sure it's not the first historically; it won't be the last personally---haha! but I will resolve not to be so shoddy A.S.A.P.

At any rate, I'm beat, and still have some 30 storyboards to do . . .

Avocado!

  1. You're so welcome! I'm just sorry I'm not a good actor and can't even keep a straight face... It was fun, regardless.

  2. What the? You were AMAZING! It is disquieting, however, to see the flaws in the execution, which are entirely my fault. I never feel more incompetent than when I witness my lackluster film-making talents. Though the premise was purposely goofy, I still worry that all I'm capable of is unintended slapstick.

  3. I beg to differ... You're a great director, it's just too bad the camera was a pain to use. I think it turned out really well, partly due to the fact that any scenes with me in them were short :).

  4. If any of these storyboards lands up at Cannes, please be merciful enough to send me a copy of it!

  5. Hahahaaha! Haha! Ha. Ahem! No, I sincerely doubt it, though you're sweet to soften the reality of my decidedly flawed vision.
