Will Reading – the movie is DONE!!! (updated #12)

Will Reading is a movie I started writing on May 30th of 2013.  The third draft of the script was finished in the spring of 2014 after which I started casting and other pre  production tasks.  We had a table read in August of 2014 and went into full production mode, which lasted for… I dunno, until around June 2015 and everything I shot after that was called post production pickups.  I had already started editing some of the more challenging sequences while we were shooting, but editing didn’t begin in earnest until after shooting ended and really picked up steam in January of 2016.

And now it’s done.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again:  I’m so very grateful and proud of everyone that worked on the movie and that the result we achieved have exceeded my wildest expectations!

If you check out the Will Reading link, you can follow along on my production diary.

Will Reading – Trailer #2 (updated #11)

Here’s the second (and presumably final) trailer for our movie, Will Reading.   I probably have another two weeks of post production to go and then the movie will finally be one hundred percent complete!   This is a journey that stretches back to 2013 for me, and I can scarcely describe how I feel, so I won’t try.  I will say that I’m very grateful and proud of everyone that worked on the movie and that the result we’ve achieved exceeds my wildest expectations!

We’re finally on the home stretch, the final leg, the end of principal photography on Will Reading.  I think the hardest bits are behind us and it should be relatively smooth sailing until we finally coast into the port for the final docking.  Boat metaphors.  Read the rest of this entry

Props, props, props – they’re the bane of my existence…  at least in conjunction with making this movie, Will Reading.  Sometimes, props are delicious, and when it comes to food props that you expect actors to eat, don’t f@ck around.  Read the rest of this entry

Production/Principal Photography/Whatever You Wanna Call It is in full swing on Will Reading.  Above, we’re just about to shoot the pivotal bar scene.  All movies should have a pivotal bar scene (Good Will Hunting) – or at least a memorable one (Gremlins).   Read the rest of this entry

The Prop Table Is taking shape!

Pre Production on Will Reading is about to come to a close. Our little movie’s script has been shaped into a shooting draft, we’ve got a prop list, a shooting schedule… all that good stuff. At this point, I’m just waiting for the last bits of equipment and props to arrive in the mail while I’m putting together storyboards and shot lists for each scene.
