The Difficult Week
Chris and I spent the last week working feverishly on project we’ve been planing for quite some time. It is a fable called Lost in Fae, and contained a number of technical and logistical challenges that nearly sank the ship.
When it came time for the long awaited filming last weekend, we were dismayed to find that the weather had turned distinctly wintery and refused to cooperate with our schedule. However, thanks to a fearless group of unpaid actors and crew, we crawled away with some great material. Here is a sneak peak:
The Change of Course
The weekend was so intense it left both of us bedridden (different beds) with a severe cold that persisted several days. On Tuesday we took a hard look around and realized we can’t keep doing what we are doing. It takes too much from us, too much from the people we ask to help, and far too much from our meager financial resources. We’ve come as far as we can come as amateur filmmakers, and have yet to find a way to make it work.
We’re now looking for a new way. A way that gives us the ability to create quality work without losing our minds. A way that allows us to compensate those who give us their talents. A way that lets us (and you who have helped) be as good as we know we can be.
