Day One Looms

I'm almost done transferring them over! This is a blog from June 17th about pre-production for What's the Use?So, we are a week from shooting. It's been the usual non-stop pre-production hustle. I'm finishing the last of the props. Have just one VHS cover I need to design and print. I will be meeting some of the actors this weekend to hit up thrift stores and the like for their costumes.…See More

Catma Project 2011: The feature now titled "What's the Use?"...For Now

I'm still transferring blogs from blogger.com about my second feature film experience, a micro-budget project.  This one dates from early June 2011...more to come. So, the first feature project we are attempting under the "Catma 2011" guidelines is now called "What's the Use?" At least, for now... Without spoiling too much, it's about a young teen who goes out one summer night to seek revenge on a man who publicly humiliates and abuses her father at a barbecue party.  Along the way, she meets…See More

"Catma" project 2011: Finding the Gear for the New Feature Film

I'm transferring blogs about working on my second feature from my blogger.com account here. This one dates from early June, 2011.  More to come... So, the story we are shooting is being called What's the Use for now. Jorge and I have bought some of the essentials we need for creating another film. This has been a challenge as neither of us make a lot of money, and by following the goals of "Catma," are trying to be resourceful with the small sum we have. HARD DRIVE:  As this is a digital…See More

The New "Catma 2011" Project Continues...

As I'm transferring blogs over here slowly, this blog is from May 17 2011.  I'll be adding them all here over time.So...it's been two weeks since I posted anything about the new "Catma 2011" project. Instead of floating around philosophies about it, we've decided to put our thoughts into action. We are shooting a feature length film in 2011 based on this DIY approach.  So, here's the update.  We've chosen an idea for the film's story.  Since Catma is supposed to be about utilizing your…See More

The Creation of "Catma 2011"

This blog I've cut and pasted from an earlier blog from blogger.com.  This is from May 2nd. I'll be slowly moving my blogs here as well over time. So, my co-producer, Jorge Sermini, and I decided to break away from our normal busy weekend film-oriented chores, and just head out in the heat for sushi at Sushi-a-Go-Go and a walk on South Congress.  Of course, we always talk film. We always talk about projects, creatively and pragmatically. Nothing we really mulled over was that much different…See More

Dreams & Goals
Nicole is a filmmaker who began her artistic career as an electronic musician under the names of Neutral and Squab Teen. She has since moved on to film with her first feature, (IN THE SHADOW) (http://www.intheshadowmovie.com), shot in Puerto Rico, and is in post-production for a new collaborative Austin, TX-based lo-fi project, (WHAT'S THE USE?)

Her work can also be seen at:

From her Blue Paper Film Works profile: “Film stories should not be exempt from the unexplainable and unplanned, yet there is a fear of real life in most movies, forcing this powerful artform to be little more than spectacle, or vehicles of reassurance and pacification for the masses. They typical film palette should also include a deeper look at what life and people are all about. We don’t eat ice cream and Cheetos everyday after all. Sometimes, we have to try that friend grub worm despite how scary it looks.” (http://www.bluepaperfilm.com)

Production is wrapped!

We wrapped. I am overjoyed. We are done.  Our apartment is a mess. My cat misses me and bites me in the mornings to let me know it. I look aged with fatigue and want nothing more than to find some body of water somewhere and just lie down near it, nap, drink beer, eat expensive cheese, and watch the sunlight bounce off the water's surface. I'm mentally exhausted.  This has been the most grueling production I've been on.



This is due to two reasons: working a full-time job while… Continue

The Misery and Joys of Production

Finally, the last transferred blog.  From July 5th. 

 

So we are in the 12th day of shooting.  I had about two hours of sleep last night before having to head into the day job today, so these thoughts are probably going to be a bit random. 



Production, as always, has been a test of patience, endurance, diplomacy, and leadership. I generally don't like production.  I always feel rushed, and bombarded with technical issues. I've always found…
