We're going off later to a goodbye party for one of the cast members. I think I mentioned him moving last post. We'll sort his scenes for the rest of the year so it won't effect the comic. He was determined not to let the comic down. Which is cool. He's a great actor, which I'm seeing more as I go through the photos. He's the new character on page 15, and he was the one who got into the character the most, consequently getting quite attached. (He was also the one most prone to giggling.) I've noticed he has a slightly different hand position in each photo I've taken for a conversation later on (I'm pretty sure I didn't ask him). I think he has actor roots, although he's a writer now. Getting sad now, I don't want him to move.
Anyway, I was just thinking how I'm enjoying the process for filming Issue 2 so much more than the first time round. Wet behind the ears, you could describe me as, back then. But it's cool now. Instead of panic at the thought of directing people and organising millions of things I'm excited and I can't wait to start.
I've got all the props for Saturday shoots now. And the story boards. We're doing about three whole pages and little bits of another three. (then we're off to a birthday dinner and another party.) And I might try to arrange another little shoot the weekend after.
And in case anyone's interested:( The whole process running up to a Dark Red Photoshoot is...Collapse )
