The Leap 3 team (actors, a PA and the composers) all have the script now, and feedback is flooding in as I had hoped. In these films, there’s two storylines going on at once: The Leap Crew and the CDF (bad guys). The storyline for the Leap Crew was pretty well fleshed out, but I knew I really need help adding character development to the CDF. My leads for that storyline have been giving me some great ideas that I’ll be incorporating into the second draft.
The audio file I downloaded from readthrough.com has been a huge help to me as well. Last night I watched the first two films and listened to the mp3 for this one. It’s helping me to see where the weaker parts are and what needs more work. When I get my new computer (I may end up being able to get the one from my old job, it’s a beast) I’ll add a temp track and a few boards/animatics to it as well as photos of locations and such. It’ll be a strange collage, but with a project this ambitious, every bit of pre-viz helps.
