Tomorrow I am scheduled to direct my own short film, with my classmates as my crew. I have my actors, permit to occupy the sidewalk in the exchange, permission from my first choice of restaurant and my props. They are calling for a heavy downpour, so we might get rescheduled.. or we might go ahead. I'm so excited!!
It's only a couple minute short film. We have three hours to film it all. Mine is about the connection between people and the way we can impact each other's lives. It is about destiny... and my stones. We've been told by many of our instructors that our first film is supposed to suck, so that takes the pressure off. I am just happy to be doing it.
I have the total support of my love and my friends. It feels good. The funny thing is that I have been wanting to take this course for years. I let fear stop me. I was so intimidated by it. But here I am.. facing my fears. Doing it anyway. Finally!!
