55 pages into the script! Constructed a slider this weekend to use on the film and also did a preliminary budget based on salaries, food, insurance and some equipment I would like/need such as lights and a new lens. Total budget is just under $40k. I’ve decided to keep this production completely transparent, in part because we’re planning on doing a kickstarter for this film and I want the accountability. Alexander Bonds, whom I’ve worked with on both Leap films is working with me again, this time more behind the scenes. Him and his wife will be a huge asset to the production, helping out with whatever needs to be done. I’m also looking at recording sync sound for the first time, rather than doing ADR for everything. One of the reasons I was never a huge advocate of shooting sync sound before is because of my editing style in Vegas. I like three point editing, rather than two point which seemed to be the only option when shooting SS. I recently learned of DualEyes and it will sync the audio to the video before it even enters my NLE and does not re-compress the video, merely replaces audio =)
I’m excited for this production, each film gets better than the last, and I think we have a neat concept here.
