24 Hours and Special Effects

I spent the morning working on figuring out a special effect shot for MathTacular4. If it works, I'll post a bit more about that.

This afternoon was spent doing what pre-production we can for "The Christian Filmmakers 24 Hour Video Contest". On March 1, 2008 at 5am MST (if the website I checked told me the right info), we will be starting our mad rush to getting our really great short out the door before Sunday morning. What kind of pre-production did we do today?

First, we finalized out script idea. We'd been kicking this around for a month now, but we just couldn't get it to work. Well, now we have it. And it's good. Which is great.

Second, we drove around and talked to the owners of a few stores to see if we could film there. We have two shots that require a real store, so we need some place that will let us shoot for an hour. We got a flower shop (thanks so much!), and we're waiting to hear back about the card shop (we've probably got about a 25% chance with them).

So, yeah. That's that.

Now we wait for a few responses, including a "leading lady", and try to keep breathing until then.
