“All you need is the plan, the road map, and the courage to press on to your destination.”
That quote sums up my journey of making my short film. The time that I spent writing the script and working with different people to build this film has been incredible. The long hours of sitting in front of my computer and editing have finally come to an end. It feels like a big weight has come off my shoulder and it’s not really a bad thing. It’s just that this has been a big part of my life and to see it all done is just amazing.
The process has been an interesting one. It didn’t take me long to write the short film, it only took about a day. I just remember typing it out, with nothing slowing me down. It was a three day film shoot that was done at night into the wee hours of the morning. I will admit that I was only there for one of the days. Hey, I’m a writer. The actors and the crew manage to fight off the cold, to build such a great product. I couldn’t be more proud of them.
Now, the new challenge begins. What we want to do is get this in the festival circuit, which I never did before. I’m sure it’s the luck of the draw, but we are up for the task. At least I mark off something on the bucket list.
Here is the Trailer.
