14 pages since Friday. Though, to be fair I salvaged maybe five of those from the previous draft, from huge blocks of text that I thought I’d have to cut entirely.

Still, I’m pretty happy with myself. I’m a whole lot closer to my goal: Draft 3.0 done by November.

But now I gotta stop and do some research.

Swords and Suckery

I don’t have nearly the patience for world building that I used to. Back when I was a kid I wanted my fiction to be a transcendental experience. I wanted fantasy worlds that had nothing in common with the real one.

After nine and a half books of the Wheel of Time I don’t think I’ll ever read about another fake planet populated with the same elf-like beings on one side, orc-like beings on the other and humans in the middle.

I don’t know if this is because I’ve become more satisfied with the real world and my place in it or if I’ve become less satisfied with attempts at fictional world building. So much of it is just more of the same-old painted over with funny words.

Disaster kit disaster.

While looking for vacuum cleaner bags on the hall closet floor I discovered a plastic tub of black, slimy water. Seems that Whatshisface prepared an emergency preparedness kit, including batteries, glow sticks a corkscrew opener (?) and a leaky bottle of water, one gallon. So this disgusting battery stew had been fermenting in there for over two years.

Let me tell ya, it tasted horrible.

Yesterday’s movie took 8 hours to shoot and we got ~58 minutes of footage.
I really shouldn’t add up these receipts, I should just put them out of my mind.

Now it’s in the editor’s able hands.

more movie madness

Jessie and I went around thrift stores and real stores for four hours buying ~$500 dollars of costuming and props.

Safe to say that this is the most shopping I’ve ever done in one day. I don’t know how you chicks do it.

The costumes have all gone to the cleaners or through the wash to get rid of that AmVets smell and I left all the props stuff with Jessie for her to play with.

When i came up with this idea I really didn’t have a sense of scale. I’m still absorbing the magnitude of shooting a one to three minute film.

Jessie Wilson is shooting our wedding announcement video on the 21st!

WE NEED ZOMBIES!!!

9/21 (Sunday), San Diego. If you would like to play the LIVING DEAD in a one day production, please let me know. We are looking for up to 20 bodies. Feel free to forward this to your friends.

We’re filming a trailer for the fake zombie movie “Till Death Do Us Part”.
PLOT: A wedding goes awry when the congregation turns into the living dead and tries to eat the bride and groom.

If you’d like to be a Zombie, please reserve 9/21 from 9:30AM to 7:00 PM, (we need you the whole time, but it will be bloody fun and meals are provided).

Frolic with other un-dead, ensure your infamy… What more can you ask?

Details to come in a few days. Please respond if you’re interested in eating bride brains!

You’ll need wedding attire that you’re not too attached to. Since there’s a good chance it’ll get blood and makeup all over it.
I believe everyone will start the day playing humans and end up as zombies.

Bring your friends!

So much for that.

Once the novel was done I was going to put together a pitch to Virgin Comics. Sort of a Mudgala Purana in space.

Glad I didn’t put too much effort into it.
