Wow. I'm being filmed...

Backstory: Early last year, I was contacted by a director from Triggerstreet and asked to write a short for him. I did. I sent it to him, he liked it, had a few notes, we went back and forth a little, I made a few changes and then gave him a one year license to produce ONE film. (It expires on April 1 of this year.) Things progressed, emails were flowing back and forth, he was really happy with the script, I was welcome on set, he was busy working away, he was getting the DP he wanted, he was auditioning actors.... then, the bottom fell out, silence on his end. When I wrote him a friendly "how's it going" email, he replied with he was having difficulty find actors, etc...

Frankly, I figured that the ball had been dropped. Totally. So, I forgot about it.

Imagine my surprise when I got an email today, with links to stills and rough footage.

Check it out here: stills

That's so cool! I couldn't see the mov file because my quicktime installation says it's missing files, but I heard the audio.

I bet you can't wait for the full rough cut.

it requires quicktime 7, so make sure you've updated. quicktime 7. i had no problems watching it in firefox...

you can download the .mov directly from the link below. easier to play that way - assuming you have quicktime 7:

How cool is that? "The only way is up, baby!" (aka Harvest Home) :)

Dave, thanks for the contining support. Your wife's a lucky woman!

Alicia! Grrrl, I can only go "up" cause I'm still on the bottom! But, I appreciate the sentiment as well as the support! Btw, "Alica" is much prettier than "Harvest Home". Me likey!

I hate when my computer gets full of unnecessary programs, so I try to use smaller alternates. Here's the QuickTime alternative:

WoHOO! I finally got to watch it (over at a friend's house).

Not entirely what I saw in my head while writing it but I guess that's ALWAYS gonna happen.
