So, um, it appears that I'm making a short film. My director friend came in from out of town and was basically like, "Hey, let's shoot a quick film." And I was like, "Okay." And he was like, "Good. So, go ahead and write the script." <chuckles>
So over the course of about six hours we'd come up with a premise, cast a lead character and written a script. It's basically going to be a short steampunk action film involving a robbery and a betrayal, and we're shooting it March 15-17th.
And, umm, during this whole process, I kind of got the idea for another short film. My director friend agreed to direct it, provided that I write it and it comes out good. It's a zombie film about five people stuck in a mall during the zombie apocalypse. Oh, also, it's a musical.
Yeah, you heard me. I'm writing a zombie musical. I can't write music, so I'm collaborating with a friend of mine for the melodies. I've always loved musicals, and I'm really, really excited about the prospect of writing a musical. If this works out, I would absolutely love to do a series of musicals in various genres, like sci-fi, fantasy, etc.
The upshot of all this is that I'm doing well, and having fun!
