Post Partum Day 1, Morning

So I'm hoping that this is 1 of 2 posts today, I start filming my web series today with a lot of great people helping and donating their time and energy to get this project off the ground, it's been a stressful couple of days and things have been tense, I've learned that I'm not cut out for the producing side of film making, at least I haven't learned enough to do it the right way. Now my the easiest time starts, while i spend the next few days telling the actors what to do and filming stuff, now I have to go get my equipment from the school so I can shoot. wish me luck!

Sickness and Sitcoms

So this is short because I am not feeling to well tonight and I have a meeting tomorrow with a potential actress for my web-series. Her name is Cheryl Bricker and she'll be playing the mother in our story, you can see who she is at she is the friend of one of our teachers named Richard Kuhlman, he will be playing the father in the series, he can be seen here: His hair is a bit more gray now but he still acts and recently guest starred on "Trust Me" a tv Drama. Thats all for now, I need to get some sleep.

Dr. Horrible

Recently I've been watching this show/miniseries online called Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. Its a web series Directed by Joss Whedon (from Buffy, Angel, and Firefly) starring Neil Patrick Harris, Yes Doogie Howser M.D. anyways its about a super villain named Dr. Horrible who has several run-ins with his Nemesis Captain Hammer as he tries to change the world and get the girl, it's a really good story and there's music which is pretty catchy.
Now you may be thinking "why are you watching a musical" well 1. I like musicals, and 2. its one of the best web series online so mine has to at least match it in quality. so you should all go look it up on HULU here's the url and enjoy it, now I have to get back to work.

All the scripty details.

Tonight is going to be really short because I'm currently working on paperwork for 'Strangely Progressive' my web-sitcom, I have to take the scripts I have and pick them apart scene by scene and see what characters, props, costumes, and other important Items are in each one, it's a long tedious process that I don't enjoy so I'm going to go back to it so I can get to bed. goodnight.

My house.

Now today is coming to an end. I didn't sleep all too well last night so I'm actually tired right now. The sitcom and my short were put on hold for today, didn't feel like writing or planning, I wish I had some printer ink then I would be able to print off all the reports I need to in order to plan and budget these scripts. I don't know how much it's all going to cost hopefully we can find everything for cheap or free. for the first 3 minutes of the first episode we have just about 10 locations maybe more, I'm not entirely sure. Tuesday we are supposed to continue writing the scripts and hopefully we'll get two more written.
The house is treating us well, I spent a few hours today cleaning stuff up it looks alot nicer without oranges on the ground in the back yard, or the black tarps hanging on the fences. but yeah that's boring.
having wrote stuff earlier today I'm finding it hard to think of something interesting other than the show's I've been watching, How I met your Mother is really funny, and I've been watching that alot, I looked up some web-sitcoms and none have really caught my attention yet, Clark and Micheal is closer to the series style we want to do but even still it's not what we're looking for. 'Wainy Days" was pretty stupid another okay show is 'Dorm Life' which reminds me of what I wanted to make a while ago. So in a few months we'll see how the shoot goes and then after that we'll see how well the actual show turns out, we will need a lot of views to get anywhere with it, our foremost goal is to get some recognition. But if we can get enough hits maybe we can get picked up by a sponsor.
I finally got around to creating an opening title for my "production company" it's called Pirate's Code Studios and the logo is a ship and a sun, it's a cheap looking animation for now, I'll post the video on here so you can all see it and give me some input (if it looks good, if you can read it okay, etc.)
anyways now I'm tired and It's hot in my room, time to try and get some sleep, goodnight.

Movies, Financial Aide and Nice Weather

Okay, so last night I didn't write anything because I went to see X-men Origins: Wolverine, overall it was a decent movie I have no complaints about the action or adventure in it, the only real issues I have are with Remy Lebeau, yes gambit was a disappointment, they cast a novice actor who had really only done Friday Night lights before hand, he had a Texas accent and didn't even bother trying to sound Cajun, it was a sad portrayal indeed. The question remains who else could play that part? No one that I know of.
and this morning I woke up and Hopped a bus to get to my school to get my financial aide situation straightened out, and everything worked itself out no problem, unfortunately it is such a nice day out that I'm really sad that I have to spend the first part of it indoors, hopefully the next few days are just as nice.
