This is going to be another short and sweet post. Unfortunately, I’m still sick… not sick enough to warrant staying in bed, but just enough to be annoying and have me coughing at inopportune moments (like when I’m trying to talk to someone else.)
Aside from that, things on A Shadow Shall Fall are rolling along again smoothly… we now have three episodes sent out to the musicians, and more will be going shortly. ‘All’ that’s left now are the special effects, and the final colour and sound treatments. I say ‘all’ sort of facetiously, because it’s still a whole heap of work… but looking at where we’ve come from (started writing December 2007, did casting in April and May 2008, filmed June to August 2008, and editing’s been happening from September-ish onwards) we’re really not doing too badly for a production on as large a scale as it is.
To put things in perspective, our main cast was about 40, plus extras, plus the crew, and we shot nearly every day. On a project where payment is deferred, it means a hell of a lot of work for people who also have other jobs and projects. But, the ins and outs of production is a post for another day, I think…
My goals for the next week or so (outside of ASSF and social things) are to a) get my income taxes done, and b) get everything caught up in between my online and paper organizers. While I use and adore google calendars, having information at hand is always good. I’m a manic organizer bunny, I just can’t help myself. =P
