Back at the keyboard, this time working on another short script, there's another competition based around a theme of 'power cuts' and I had an idea involving an aircraft losing power (always going for the easy themes... as usual) but I created a cgi sequence of a low flying plane, composited with a quickly grabbed 550d shot of the street outside.
The sequence turned out pretty good, but now I have to actually shoot the rest of it, and also write the script. Might bea easier to just leave it as a nice little effects shot, rather than go to all the trouble of creating an entire short around it.
So I've put out a call to a local group of actors, and if they agree to get involved, then it'll be a frantic weekend of shooting and editing next weekend to get everything ready in time.
In the meantime, I'm also prepping my 'modern cupid' project, with an eye to shooting it next month.
