Return to Sender: Update and Delay

It has been a while since my last update about my upcoming short film Return to Sender. I believe the last thing I talked about was completing the storyboard, and that was back in the spring.

I had to put the project on hold for a couple of reasons.

For one, I started working the summer camps in June. This was the busiest year I’ve had for those, working two camps a day all the way through the end of July. It didn’t leave me much chance (or energy for that matter) to take the next necessary steps.

The second reason picked up right after the summer camps ended. Back in May, I got engaged to my partner of 5 years. We’re getting married in October of this year. Needless to say, I didn’t have the time or money available to move forward on the film. I had wedding planning to do, and that stuff is stressful!

The progress on Return to Sender has remained at that same standstill. My next step was to move on to casting, but I will be postponing that for now.

Through the winter, I will most likely make another pass through the script to see if I want to make any final changes. Any changes will then be reflected in storyboard revisions.

At the moment, I’m hoping to pick up where I left off with casting at the start of 2018. I’m hoping to get into principle photography at the beginning of spring, and I’m hoping for a late spring or early summer release.

Let’s see how much of what I’m hoping for actually comes to pass!
