So out of the blue, Nat Cassidy and David Ian Lee hand me a brilliant script. The Queen of Mars summed it up this way "It's definitely a Pandora Machine movie." (Hmm... I guess that could be taken two ways...)
It's written to be shot in my dad's warehouse and offices on weekends. There's a groovy little ensemble cast who get picked off one at a time by an evil robot. Big guns. Lesbian androids. Gratuitous lighting.
We are delivering Day 2 to the lab tomorrow because our rep tells us we have a south Asian buyer ready to go. I have to make a PAL master and an HD master. I'm only going to deliver four audio tracks even though I have a total of 16. Even so, we'll have to foist those upon a North American buyer.
We're a tad worried because FCP has been rendering weirdly. This is a new issue with version 7. My office-mate Blair said "What, were they bought out by Adobe or Avid and then they released 7 to screw it up?" In any case, we have to be very careful with new renders that we don't have any parts of the movie which are just black...
