It Happened

Things just didn’t work out last week, but this evening I was finally able to begin filming my movie! I was able to shoot one of the flashback scenes. The weather was good, and everyone was available. I’m excited to see how the footage turns out, but with this I won’t have quick results. I have to send the film off to have it processed. I know that’s old fashioned, but that’s kind of what makes this so fun. In these days, when things are so instantaneous, it’s nice to do some things the way they used to be done. It’s hard to believe, but it actually happened! This project is moving forward!

It’s Really Happening

I’m so excited because it looks like my project will finally get started! My script is mostly complete, my actors are ready, and it looks like we are all set to shoot the first scene of my short love story tomorrow. My only concern is the weather. The forecast is not good. If it rains or storms, or if it is too cloudy, we will have to reschedule for another day. Right now it doesn’t look promising, but I’m still hopeful. Maybe the weather will surprise us tomorrow.

Even if we aren’t able to shoot tomorrow, I’m glad I have made enough progress to get this close to actually doing some filming. For that, I am thankful.

My First Film Project

Before 2014 comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to update this blog. I’ve been meaning to blog more often, but I ended up putting in on the back burner. Blogging’s not the only thing I put on the back burner. I had to delay starting my film project.

I had hoped to have a short film shot, edited, and ready to submit to a film festival or competition this year. Unfortunately, I had to delay my project. Actually, I had to delay it much longer than I expected. Hopefully, I can start the new year off right and begin filming in January. I have now cast the leading lady, but I need to make sure my leading man is still available. My project is a short love story, and it will be shot in black and white. I’m excited about getting started.

I will keep you posted with updates about my project. Hopefully, I will be able to post more updates in 2015.

Welcome

Hi! I’m Jason. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I’m really excited about sharing my experiences as I learn more about making films with a Super 8 movie camera. I want to create short films for submission to Super 8 film festivals and contests. I will be posting my progress here, as well as sharing anything interesting I find about Super 8 filmmaking.
