    Road Movie

    Kevin, Tipper, Kate and I are driving from Chicago to St. Louis today in order to shoot some scenes for the film down there. Then we're turning around and driving back home tomorrow. Ugh. But the scenes are going to be great, and Kate needs a ride to St. Louis, so it all works out fine.

    The second big shooting push starts today, and goes through next weekend. After next weekend, the film should be 90% shot, and it's just a matter of editing and sound mixing. I have about 35 minutes of tight edited footage so far that I'm pretty happy with. I still have no idea where all the scenes will go in the film, but I like them individually. The real test will be to put the final puzzle together. There's a lot of material to work with, and a lot more characters than I had to deal with on KOTM. I'm already realizing how tough it is to balance out a bunch of characters and give everyone enough time. I'm thinking with the next project the cast will shrink again. But it's hard because I love casting so much.
