Glad you're keeping this alive. How about some more posts on the

I'm just waiting on my steadycam and everything to come in the mail, and the outline for the script.

Sure, I'm in. Stupid grin included. You and I end up friends at the end of the movie.

Edit: I don't know you and I'm sorry if I offended you in some way. That wasn't my intention. Peace.

May i ask to the OP, how this is going to come about? What has been happening behind the scenes since the start of the thread?

I've been eagerly tracking the threads progress, and am still none-the-wiser since it begun.

Just under seven weeks, or there abouts, to do all of the above, is a very troublesome and time-consuming process. Especially as you're aiming to tackle Sundance, and have an ideal for your material, which would require the best cast, locations, crew. All of which are costly, and require a great deal of thought.

I'm not one to be a skeptic, I'm sincerely excited to see the process develop in such a short amount of time. Everybody at IT loves to see the coming together.

It just feels that whatever is happening, is concealed, and slightly unspoken. Unless you're all in communication, and are informed.

I'm just very interested to see the progress.

Update?

Just out of interest, why do people think they need to live in the same state to collaborate in 2011?

Out of these four:

Quote:
Screenwriters
Producers
Editors
Cinematographers
Only the last one needs physical face to face cooperation. The rest can be done be email, file transfer and FedEx.

I'm just curious. I see the location thing: "I wish I lived in XYZ" brought up a lot.

Hey Paper. I'm writing as we .....write? It's going to be a wacky comedy in the same vein as Super Bad/Mall Rats. I don't want to say too much cause it isn't my project, but Kriegs and I have been in constant contact. We went over the rough outline for the movie yesterday.

Anyone that's interested in helping/contributing contact the OP kriegs089.

That's excellent, Murdock!

Keep us informed, even if it's a weekly update. Like i said, i'm willing this to succeed.

The thing that makes me apprehensive about this project (possibly unfairly) is that idea that it's being aimed at Sundance.

You're rushing through the scheduling of the project to try and get submission to the top independent film festival in the world. Sundance directors tend to have a lot of experience, the writers have spent years crafting their scripts and they've got access to top end equipment and actors. It simply doesn't seem likely that a project like this will stand a chance of getting included at Sundance.

Why not slow down the process, rather than rushing to meet the Sundance deadline, and apply to some of the thousands of other highly respected film festivals?

Or just aim for Sundance 2012.

One reason why projects like this usually fail is because the
originator doesn't keep the interest up by letting everyone
know what's going on. I sure wish kriegs089 would keep
everyone updated on the progress. Answering questions and
keeping people informed would go a long way to maintaining
interest and even bringing on new people.

Frankly I think setting a close deadline and stick ing with it
is the best way to go. Slowing down often leads to a full stop.
