I've completed most of the picture edits we have on our "punch list" we created last Sunday. One more picture edit to go.
Mac Rogers gave us his thoughts & we turned 'em into a concrete set of edits with further consultation by our "third screenwriter" Anthony Litton, and our special effects director Maduka Steady. Ed McNamee assured us that the story was working emotionally (he's not a big fan of science fiction) and that's all I need to know!
There's about a dozen more sound edits to do, robot foley, and then: reshoots/additional photography! We hope to get all that done on Wednesday/Thursday...
That means we should be able to start duplicating screeners this coming weekend.
I'm not so sure I'm a sound mixer anymore. I think I'd like to do, say, one film a year as a sound mixer, one as a DP, and one as a director. (I bet I'd get paid in diminishing order for those three things!) I'd love to have a Cooper mixer, a couple Shoeps mics, that sorta thing, just to have around.
In any case, we're finishing pickups on Bloodmask on Wednesday. I hope to have all the edit changes done by then.
Here's a quote. You can tell that I've been doing a lot of surfing while rendering.

Truthfully, I thought Below was a lot better. Similar names. Very different attention to the script. I liked Dog Soldiers though.
I am posting now with www.writely.com
Another Google product.
But I still have to go into Blogger to change the headline. Don't know why.
Our favorite alien android, Olja Hrustic, is one of the "20 Most Exciting New Stars" this month in Penthouse. As soon as I heard I ran to the nearest newsstand to buy a Penthouse (for... the article... you know!)
And there we are! Bloodmask! In national news!

We have to get an act-and-a-half of music from Aaron, and then there's a world of sound effects (including all the darn noises the robot makes), and we have to make a decision about foley (whether to do a day of foley recording or just use "cut" effects). And then...
We still won't be done.
I suspect we're going to add a scene where Murnau gets his orders. I'm also a little appalled (in a pulp/genre kinda way) that we don't have any (as Laura puts it) android-on-girl action. We used to, in the script, but something happened...
Today I will work on scripts.
But the big news is that I'm using yet another Google product: www.writely.com and I'm going to publish my blog with it.
Just you watch.
