So I set out to make a movie by myself with just my friends. No outsiders. This was due in large part to the trouble I've had with working with people from school. Somehow I got two professional film people to sign up for the project. I didn't reach out to anyone they reached out to me. It's an amazing feeling and one that I have to admit, I'm a bit nervous.
It's not a done deal yet. I have a meeting with them today at five and depending how that goes dictates what happens next. I've never been much of a meeting person myself. I live a great deal of the time in my head and only share information that has to be shared in order for me to get people to do what I need them to do when on set. Today I have to outline my whole plan for the film and dive into detail on how I hope to accomplish the huge tasks I have ahead of me. I've never really had to explain myself or my method to anyone before, least of all someone who will be working for me so this is new. But exciting. It is a small taste of what going to pitch meetings will be like and the truth is I can't wait!
