Happy New Year

2010 is almost here. Such an odd year this past one has been. In many ways I am happy to see it go. Much potential for the new year. Two key things are the finishing of ‘Distortion’ and the making of a new film ‘Killer Talk’.

I was hoping to finish ‘Distortion’ this year but one thing led to another and I was delayed several times. Since I am alone on this I can’t pass work off to someone else. So if I’m not working on it then it sits there until I get to it again. Between regular work and some other projects my time has been filled lately. I don’t want to work on it just little bits at a time. It needs my full concentration. One that I will be giving it in January. I am currently finishing up some odds and ends and then I am in full ‘Distortion’ mode. Ironically probably about where I was last January. There are some key film festivals I want to submit it to next so I need to get the film done soon if I want to submit it to them which I really do.

I admit after the Sundance rejection I was actually a little more depressed by it than I originally thought. So I needed a bit of a break from it all. Luckily in the meantime a lot of ideas have hit regarding music and the ending. The two things left to finish. I think the ending may work now which I had doubts of before. While certain pieces of music will be a little hard to tackle I do have new ideas for certain scenes which I am very happy about.

The last push to get the film finally finished is almost here. Just another day or two to take care of other things and then off I go. Locking myself in the attic. Ok. Not exactly but you get the point. I need to get it done not just so I can put the film behind me and then move forward with the festivals but also because I need to get started on the script for the new film. While part of the plan for the new film is to do it quickly and not overly think things. Go on pure gut instinct and just keep moving I still don’t want to rush too much through the writing process. I need to allow for a couple of rewrites.

The new year is going to be an interesting one for me. Also one that may in fact be one of the most important years of my life. Several things need to be decided and what happens with both of these films will affect those decisions.

Here’s to 2010. The year when something will happen either good or bad. I’m hoping for the good.
