REEL: Auditions! April 21, 2018
Last weekend was a whirlwind of meetings and auditions. It was a really tough decision, but we chose our actors! Seriously, it was hard. We saw so many amazing people during the casting call, however, Gin and I are confident that we chose the right people for the part (and met others that we for sure want to work with on a future project).
Thanks to our sponsors at ikan, we held auditions at a really beautiful high rise in downtown Houston. Check it out.
So everything is moving along, which is great, but we still have a lot left to do. Here’s an idea of a few things that still need to be accomplished:
- Figure out the rest of the crew
- Find food sponsors
- Create a one sheet and a cover letter to give to potential food sponsors
- Work with our DP on the look of the film/storyboards/shot list,
- Schedule shooting days
- Get the location agreement signed
- Rehearse with the actors
- Make a piece of art that’s supposed to go above the couch
- Find 280 VHS tapes
I don’t want to say I felt the crushing weight of everything yesterday, but I did find a few more gray hairs.
One day at a time, right? We are about a month and a half out from our first shooting day, but so far I feel like we’re on track and keeping a good pace. It doesn’t feel like we’re scrambling- so that’s good. It just feels like we’ve got a few things to figure out and cross off that list. I’m grateful we are where we are and that we are working with the best people. I feel the love and I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by others who are so positive and willing to help. Showing appreciation is really important to me, so I hope I’m returning my love and appreciation loud and clear.
We’re making a movie!2
