I have a love / hate relationship with auditioning.

I'm not the biggest fan of the audition process. In fact, I might say I hate it. It stresses me out.

Every time I post notices online, I can't help but feel like I'm at the meat market.

I've got to keep in mind that I'm looking for people who look like how I envision the character.

This is a super important part of making a movie though. If you don't cast this correctly, then you can say goodbye to having a good film. I feel like I've talked about this before. Yeah, I have.

I still feel like a judgmental prick, nonetheless.

This is a project where I need everything set up as perfect as possible. I want this to be better than the previous films I've done in the past. I'm challenging myself more with this one.

I hope this isn't one of those "bit off more than you could chew" moments.

I don't think so... This is gonna be a lot of fun.

Auditions.

Auditions have been posted. We're going to have them on the 31st of this month.

Two roles are already cast and one other is pretty much set for who I want but I'm going to audition for the role still, just in case I find someone more qualified for the part.

So we're auditioning for four different roles. Two female, two male.

There aren't as many characters in this film than to be expected... I'm pretty excited for this to begin shooting... We have about a month before we start.

More updates to come...

Pre-production for next film...

First off let me tell you that Buddy is about to be sent to festivals all over. I'm liking that movie except for some minor little things that I keep tinkering with. I'm at the point of finally letting go though. I'm already getting pumped for this summer's film...

Ryan and I got together tonight and went over the script for the next film. I gave him some more notes and we started talking about some changes that need to be worked out.

We started making our lists for all the pre-production work that'll be needed: new equipment and estimates of money we'll need.

We're getting our audition sides all ready and going to begin that process within the next week or so. We're looking at a start date of the third week in June.

That gives us enough time for everything that's needed, rewrites included.

So right now we're starting to schedule the shoot. I think we're going to be saving all the single scenes for last and all the others with more than one character up front.

I'm thinking of shooting the ending first on this one.

This is going to be big. Definitely a new challenge for me, next plateau...

I'll fill you in on more details very soon.

My God it's been a while.

Okay, sorry for the delay here...

So I've been wrapping up my school semester and looks like next week I'll be finished.

Which means something big is happening... I can't get into details, but I'm really looking forward to this summer. It's going to be cool.

I'm gonna fill you all in very soon.

Buddy is now being sent to festivals.

I should probably show you some clips or something, right?

Well, we'll see.

Lots of new projects are going under way.
