“Tonight, I met with my actors and Dan. Dan got there early so we could look at the space for my scene and figure out some shots. When my actors arrived, we made introductions and started reading. I read for my lead actor since he told me at the last minute he couldn’t make it. We hammered out a schedule for rehearsing and shooting. Unfortunately, our timetable didn’t work for my lead. So, he’s out. And I’m in. Me. I am the lead. It has come to this. I literally have no other option. I need to get this done. We rehearse this Sunday and shoot next Sunday. Ideally, I’d have more time for editing and post, but I’m honestly just happy to get this thing moving!”
Every week we ask our students to review how they are progressing with our program.
