I never thought producing a short film would take up so much time. Or maybe I didn’t have that much free time in the first place. I don’t know, but one thing’s for sure, I don’t have any now.
It’s really something that’s given me pause. I felt I was at a place in my life, where I could take on the responsibilities to produce a film and still be able to provide a steady stable environment for the kids and spouse. Instead I seem to be running around like a chicken, constantly short changing one area for the other. Nothing’s quite done, and everything is mixing up. - Find a parent to take kids with them to school functions, Get the film insurance paid. Don’t forget that one kid stays home for Columbus Day, but not the other one, forgot a location meeting, reschedule a kids dentist appointment. Out of milk. Always, it seems I’m out of milk!
I thought I would be sipping from the fountain of knowledge, but instead I’m drinking from a fire hose!

The cast is almost set which feels great! Our leads are professional, incredibly talented and to make matters even better, Super Nice People! As for the locations, both Kat and I are giving great sighs of relief to have that locked. We looked them over today, talked about what will go where, who needs to be where, cars, buses, extras, lights, when to shoot, how it will look. outside on the streets, inside buildings and hallway, etc., etc., etc.,.. It was thrilling and exciting and well, truthfully, over whelming. There is just so much to think about.
But now I’m really tired. Like bone tired. I’ve been going to sleep around 1am almost every night this week and then getting up for the day around 6am. Hey, I’m a 9 hour sleeper! I’m talking serious sleeper. Five or six hours of sleep just doesn’t cut it for me. Even now, I feel like I’ve got the flu.
So I’m gonna go to bed now and try not to think about every little detail that I hope I won’t forget before I awake tomorrow. I'm so excited about this film... I'm so tired.
I've stopped making sense.
