We have a complete script!!!!!! It took me and Joel many many hours in the library throwing ideas back and forth about structure, camera shots, characters, dialogue. Although it is admittedly still in draft stage, I don’t think I’ll ever be perfectly happy with it, but that’s just my perfectionist tweaking nature. So currently I’m working on the re-draft already, fine-tuning and I feel like we’ve all got our hands full with stuff to do. Which is good.

We had a full read-through with the cast members today, (minus Moon who couldn’t attend, and Shug who needs to be cast still [these are punk band characters, not real names heh]) and I started to see the overall picture. We also had a play about with water balloons and a camera (keeping the two very much apart for obvious reasons) to experiment with how we are going to capture our slow-mo water balloon shot. AND we got out the basics of Linda’s bedroom set to see how we were going to move the walls apart for the Union Jack psycho scene where Linda hallucinates that her parents friends and headmaster are all talking about her, all of which will be chroma-keyed onto a green screen that comes in when the walls part. Which, went quite well. There are still adjustments to be made on the set layouts but they’re coming together slowly.


SO, feeling positive and kinetic,
