Now that 2018 has officially begun, it’s time to go head first into pre-production for my next short film, Return to Sender.
If you’ve been following me for long, you may have read about this one previously. I made several posts in the previous year detailing its conceptualization. You can read those posts about script writing, creating the storyboard, and its eventual delay by following the links given in this paragraph.
The last meeting we had about Return to Sender was in December 2016, so it was nice to have another meeting about it in December 2017. It was even more nice that this meeting actually hashed out a plan to get the production started.
First thing on the list of things to do is to make final updates to the script, and then make the appropriate changes to the storyboard. There is a very strong possibility that we may have a different location for this film than we previously thought. This would change the reveals that we had planned. Updates would be necessary for the pre-visualization of those reveals.
After that, we’ll hold auditions. This is an entirely new area for me. I’m not going to lie. I’m a little worried about it. We’re currently figuring out the location and logistics of it all. Once that’s all finalized, I’ll be making an announcement about that as well. Wish me luck. I really am nervous.
I’m hoping to hold auditions in February, shoot the film in March, and move into post-production in April. If I could be finished with the film for a May release, that would be fantastic. We shall see.
As always, stay tuned for more updates. Thank you all for following my journey.
