.:Screenplays and Soundtrack

March 6, 2008 at 6:54 pm (editing, production, screenwriting) (, , )

Greyscale 4.0… still underway.

Yes, more changes, but they only come when the story would be bettered (in my opinion) for it. I had gotten 88 pages in to my first draft, and realized that the antagonist (well, the most visible one) was horribly underdeveloped. So, I restructured the plot, changed up a few roles, added a couple characters, and the script is starting to get closer to being where I’m hoping for it to be for a finished first draft.

Other than Greyscale, there are other incredibly exciting potential things happening on the horizon, but both are far too early in the planning stages to divulge any information of note.

Battlefield is set to continue on March 16th if weather permits and schedules line up. Filming the last 20% of the series has been pushed back 3 times now, so I’m hoping to don the helmet again and wrap this up… Ironically, the ending has been shot, but there are a few scenes missing from the last 4 chapters, so I can’t go on and edit what I have. Also, I’m needing a soundtrack…

Lastly, ChristianFilmmakers.org put on a 24-Hour Contest that Daros Films entered (as well as FutureLight Studios… which is to say, my friend Austin was also on the team). We put together something very fun, but ultimately we were edged out by time. Out of 71 entries, we placed 4th. And by 4th, I mean we got the 2nd highest score (top 2 had a 23.5/30, and 3rd and 4th at 23/30). Later I was told that if we had re-recorded all our music (we did that to some of the music, but ran out of time to do it for all), our score would have been bumped up, but that’s just the nature of the 24-Hour contest.

So, thanks to Austin, Marisa, Jason, and Brandon for putting together the short film Soundtrack.  We had a great time making it, and will be posting an updated version with bloopers when time allows.

It was the first time I had been a part of a musical short, and it had been years since I had done a comedy… so this was a refreshing change. Check it out and keep looking for updates!

P.S.  Check out MovieZeal… they do a much better job of keeping up with movie trailers and reviews.  I still post some reviews every now and again, but I am lacking the time to write about trailers.
