So I just finished night three of my friend Lawrence's short. Guess what. . . It's a vampire short! As in vampires! as in blood suckers! It's so cool! Now If you have been following along with my youtube channel you would have noticed that I'm stepping up my game and am finally doing one video a week, well that was in part to how much fun I've been having on this shoot. In fact starting Monday I'm going to start putting out 3 videos a week so please for the love of me subscribe! I need viewers haha.
So back to this production. . . Well the first day was last Friday and I should have wrote this then but I was busy. So how was Friday? It was fun! It made me feel alive in a way I haven't in a long time. The location didn't work the way we wanted to and we needed to think fast. I walked a way for a bit and figured out how to make it work. It involved adding a train! We have aa real train in our film. Sounds stupid but it was the most amazing thing ever. So the scene involved me, Zelda and Esau with Lawrence, Mickendra and Ashley behind the scenes. It just took me back to why I got into doing all this in the first place. It's just such a rush!
So day two comes and things start to go sideways. We lose Zelda to homework along with Law's friend who is going to be a vampire. Lucky Josh and another one of Law's friends come through for us. We filmed some amazing stuff at NLC with those guys, Law and Ash in front of the camera while I worked with my old work friend Phil, who is the newest member of the Blueroof Productions team, and Devaughn behind the camera. We got some truly amazing stuff and while Law is the director I ended up directing most of it, which was a lot of fun.
So that brings us to tonight. We couldn't get Ashley, Josh or the other vampire to set. We did however, get Zelda back. So I quickly worked with the script a bit and got it all to make sense. We tied everything together and got almost everything we need. Only two more scenes left to shoot tomorrow and those shouldn't take too long.
So far all of this has been such a blast. There is nothing in this world like being on set. If you have never filmed something you need to! It will change your life. I promise you. I talked to Law and I'm going to make a second edit of this short for my channel and I even filmed a second ending for my version. I can't wait for all of you guys to see it! But until then, enjoy my newest video!
So cutting back on soda causes headaches, drinking more soda to get rid of the headaches causes headaches. How to rid the word of headaches? Decapitation! It is the only answer that makes sense, therefor it is the answer we must go for. For when the world loses it's head only then can we be truly free of headaches.
I have no idea why I wrote any of that, nor why any of you'd want to read that, but thank you. So on to more pressing concerns. I'm currently editing issue 3 of Warzone and writing episode 3 of tales. I have a weird short film that is in post-production. Should be out in a few months that is vastly different than anything I've ever done. I also have a few skits coming out soon that I'm excited about.
The work out video I did to mock the weight I put on didn't get the love I was hoping for. I thought it was funny, you can catch it here.
Looking back on my time making videos, there has been a lot of ups and downs. A large part of me wishes I never stopped and have been more consistent over the years. I feel like I have let myself down. But that is the great thing about life and the future. There is always time to change and be a better version of yourself. To be the best you, because no one else can.
Just be you, follow your hopes and dreams no matter what anyone says.
