I sent out an e-mail to my cast and crew giving them a project update, now that editing has finally begun. I told them I plan to have a trailer completed in time for the wrap party (date TBA) so now I gotta get one done. I will be posting it on here, but just for practice in uploading video to Word Press, here is that video I did in December, in case you missed it the first time around. Considering its holiday theme it’s a little out of place on the last day of April, but do we care? No. We do not.
Well, that was easy. Dang, my hair was long!
I requested a couple books from the library yesterday, not that I will have any time to read any of them. Already in is Robert Rodriguez’s “Rebel Without a Crew: Or How a 23-Year-Old Filmmaker with $7,000 Became a Hollywood Player.” But– but I am 23! Too bad I don’t have that $7,000. Also on reserve is “My First Movie,” a series of interviews with directors about the making of their first projects. Directors include Kevin Smith, the Coen brothers, Oliver Stone and more. I also requested Diablo Cody’s memoir, “Candy Girl: A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper,” just because I too hope to be plucked from obscurity and win an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay before I am 30. Surely her book will detail exactly how to make this happen.
Now, for a quick poll – which of these features should I include in the special edition DVD of my movie? Keeping in mind, of course, that it will be no more than 45 minutes long and no one will see it beyond those involved with the making of it:
1. A blooper reel (this has the potential to be longer than the actual movie)
2. A behind-the-scenes documentary
3. Interviews with cast and crew
4. Deleted scenes
5. A director’s commentary version of the film
This is going to be the best DVD ever.
