A Lovely Melody

A post long overdo. It’s been a busy couple of weeks but things are getting done. In fact, after this week I will be putting all of my time towards getting ‘Distortion’ done. At the very least get it ready for the Sundance Festival deadline. There is a lot to get done with every aspect. There is more editing to do and even more shooting. A few more b-roll shots still need to be done. Weather has been iffy with a lot of rain lately but I think this weekend might work. Plus the visual effects need to be finalized and of course sound effects and music.

Deneen taking the shortcut.

The last full scene I needed to shoot was done a few weeks ago with actress Deneen Melody. We were fighting the rain and light, although I needed it to be dark, but she was a real trooper. I only wish I had more for her to do to show off how talented she is. While it was strange shooting a scene almost a year later it was great to do it with someone who loves to act. It made it a great experience.

So much left to do and time is slipping away. I will try and post everything I can as I go along even if it’s quick to document the process.
