Welcome to Hollywood

I'll be a bit thin around the blogs over the next couple of weeks, because my involvement in this corporate video is expanding.

First I was the writer. By Tuesday I was 'executive producer'. By Wednesday morning, I'd added make up girl to my duties (was that a demotion?). Now, on Wednesday afternoon, I'm the director. That's more like it. I think.

So, when I'm not updating the script, organising people and locations, I'm quivering with fear. Sometimes all three at once.

Filming starts tomorrow...

They'll have you making the tea next.

Hope it all goes well.

Do you have anyone to handle designing the camera angles and shot, editing, and lighting, or do you need to know all that now as well?

Sounds like my job, only I'm not in film. I just keep looking forward to November, when it all slows down for me and I can spend some serious time writing.

Hey, do you want to option my book?

laughingwolf said...

i'm sure you can do it... all :)

McKoala said...

WO, no way.

Paca, thankfully yes, there is also a technical director who will take care of all that.

Conduit, you know I do!

Thank you to all, and now on to the most important question, which must be answered within the next half hour:

What does a director wear?

A beret and knickers. Don't forget the megaphone, that's important too.

Good luck! Let us know how it goes.

Er, "knickers" being knickerbockers. Not whatever knickers are across the pond and/or down under.
