Tentative Schedule

  • Friday -- Attend meeting at (Scene) Metrospace and get the required elements that must be in the final film
  • Friday -- Meet at my house to draft a script. I won't say that the script is the most important part of the competition, but if it doesn't have all elements, and an interesting story, nothing else matters. Not everyone needs to attend the script drafting session, but if you are hoping to get a part in the film, it helps if you steer everyone toward creating a character that is ideally suited for you. Experience is certainly not required. I have some experience actually writing the script, but there is one woman who is very experienced and has a Hollywood agent, who will be on our team, too. She has had one of her screenplays optioned by Tim Allen's production company. If you have an imagination and you can be creative, that is an enormous help. And the give and take between other participants is very helpful. It would be nice to have most of the script nailed down early in the evening, however we went until four in the morning last time. I hope it doesn't take that long this time. That's where the pizza comes in. (Too much beer makes us less creative, although, we think we're more creative.)
  • Saturday -- Shooting will start as early as possible, around 8:00, I'm thinking. If we have all the potential locations selected ahead of time, we can just notify the people when we're coming and show up and start shooting.
  • Sunday -- Editing, sound effects and music.
  • Sunday Evening -- Turn in the finished film. (Hopefully on time, this year.)
  • Monday Evening -- Screening of all entrants, and we give our acceptance speech for having the best film this year.
