Great cinematography, a well blocked scene, I like the camera movement and I can feel the chemistry between them.

What's that old saying? Casting is 90%? Dave and Chauntal rocked. Didn't have a lot of time for rehearsal, but managed to do some good pre-work and have a lot of philosophical talks, which is my preference as an actor/director/writer anyway. I always want to see what they bring to the table first before imposing my view...I find it much more organic and fiery. With awesome trained actors, of course.

Thanks for commenting Jeddy. You rock.

Love what I've seen so far. When do you think we'll get to see more? There is quite a contrast between the two scenes you've posted so far. I can't wait to see wht bridges the gap! If your goal was to whet the appetite, then you were successful since I'm ready to plop down for a ticket.

Kid Sis said...

Yea!!!! Now THAT'S what I'm talking 'bout!

Amazing!!!!!!! Love what I have seen so far! I agree that the cinematography, the chemistry and the camera movement was great! Look forward to seeing more.

Wondered about making movies. I had one or two questions. Feel free to say MYOB.

How can someone shift from "I have this dream to make movies" school of thought to action in terms of actively pursuing their dreams like you were able to? I meant this as a compliment. I think it's great you are doing this! We look forward to seeing the movie.

What are the obstacles to making movies for any indie filmmaker? Besides money.

wait. is this the second scene like in sequence? for some reason i thought it's just another scene.

but if it's the second scene in the movie and the first scene is what i'll refer to as the "crazy eye scene," then this is genius writing.

and i'm a little scared already.

I'm not in the business of teaching people how to make indy films, but there are plenty of classes available online, through UCLA, UCLA extension, plenty of stuff in San Francisco. Just do a google search. And subscribe to Mark Stolaroff's No Budget newsletter. Best of luck!

Kid Sis said...

Oh, and I went to film school. That's how most people do it.

Kid Sis said...

Brea, hahaha!

No, it's not the second scene in the movie, it's the second scene released. I better warn Todd the editor of that misconception, thanks for letting me know!

I hope you still end up thinking it's genius writing when you see it! ;0
