Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

Well, the lack of blog posts are clearly due to the brutal schedule that comes from directing a feature. Things are moving along. It's the usual long days and short sleep periods. But the footage is amazing and the performances outstanding.

I came down with a cold last Sunday which makes shooting even harder, but starting to feel better today. I have to say that the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) has been incredible to us. A motion picture can be a big nuisance and annoyance to any facility and they have had incredible patience with us, accommodating almost all our requests. I know that many of our production team from out of state have been real impressed.

I'll give some more details and thoughts on directing soon, when I can catch up. For now, we're going to have a big day tomorrow-- we're shooting the stage at Texas Hall, complete with light show and music performances. Extras are encouraged to join us there at 4:30 or so until about 10pm.

  1. I was there Thur night. Great performances by the singers and great choreography which was put together by Michael. He sure was a great find. This is going to be a hit movie with the teens and 20 somethings. Love the music!
