I have been writing and attending a few online seminars/labs. I have a few short scripts completed.
Bro. Steve came up with a concept and synopsis called LEGACY-i that I have been working on turning in to a feature length screenplay. Steve’s concept is great. It deserves to be completed. I am thinking that maybe it deserves better than I can give, but I will give it my best shot.
My next school project will be a shooting assignment. We are to write a short script, storyboard it, come up with a budget (that’s the easy part for me…I have no money so it is $0) and then shoot it. I have the script, entitled “Old Habits” (title may change, if someone smarter than me can come up with one) . I came up with the concept a few months ago.
Funny thing…The idea revolves around an ex-military sniper. I was running the idea around my brain and was wondering where in the world I could come up with a suitable rifle to use as a prop. That same day, out of the blue, Steve sends me a text saying, “Hey this guy I know has an airsoft rifle with a scope we wants to sell and I’m going to buy it”…Yeah, God Rocks.
So, I finished the script and I need to cast (Except the lead , Steve is going to play “Stephen Nolan” ) and schedule the shoot and then finish it up.
I purchased a shotgun mic finally. I am looking forward to using it on a real shoot. It is a low end Azden , But it is by far better than what I had.
I am liking Film School. I am able to do it at my own pace. I really enjoy the writing labs. They have been very beneficial to me and the guys running them are helpful. They are totally doing them on their own free time and I appreciate it.
So, slow but steady.
If anyone is interested in reading any of the scripts I have written, write me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will shoot you a copy so you can tell me what you think.
I’m dsto and I’m out!
