My friend and I have been talking for over a year about wanting to make short films that are focused on women, comedy & imagination. We were being ambitious & didn’t know if it would actually come to life. We had been throwing ideas back & forth with each other and now that Death of a Player is done, we can finally put some actual work into this project. We’ve decided to venture into the world that is YouTube. We came up with so many ideas that we realized we just couldn’t do it alone so we pulled in a few more local friends that we knew would share our vision. Right now, there are 5 of us working on this project. Once we establish an actual & credible foundation of some sorts, we’re hoping to pull the rest of our creative friends to express our vision. It’s a lot of work and I’d just rather present it to our friends when there is more structure & direction. Right now, it’s pretty ambiguous & frazzled. :0P There are so many YouTubers out there that make all these funny videos and we want in on that! The best part about us is that between us 5, we are producers, filmmakers, comedians, writers, musicians, directors, and actors. Plus, we have a spectacular community of resources that we can hit up, no problem. The best part is that we’ve worked with one another before so we know each others’ strengths & weaknesses, how to get along & how to work together to get this going.
I’m super excited. I never really thought it would actually happen. I’m usually the type of person to dream & not do. It took a long time for me to actually crank those dreams out and make them come true. I still have dreams & one by one, I’m working towards getting them to fruition. Of course, my ultimate will always be losing weight but I’m just going to let that one simmer for now. It will just have to remain a constant reminder that will nag at my shoulders each time I make a meal decision, try on an outfit, or feel an irregular heart palpitation.
Anyway, I had the pleasure of location scouting last night and I found that I really enjoy the pre-production side of things. Some people think that things just magically happen and that just simply is not true. So much goes into the making of almost anything-concert, movie, theater show, even improv has some kind of pre-production planning involved. I just really love to follow a plan. Without them, there would be chaos, confusion and consequences.
And so it begins…
