Will Reading – the movie is DONE!!! (updated #12)

Will Reading is a movie I started writing on May 30th of 2013.  The third draft of the script was finished in the spring of 2014 after which I started casting and other pre  production tasks.  We had a table read in August of 2014 and went into full production mode, which lasted for… I dunno, until around June 2015 and everything I shot after that was called post production pickups.  I had already started editing some of the more challenging sequences while we were shooting, but editing didn’t begin in earnest until after shooting ended and really picked up steam in January of 2016.

And now it’s done.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again:  I’m so very grateful and proud of everyone that worked on the movie and that the result we achieved have exceeded my wildest expectations!

If you check out the Will Reading link, you can follow along on my production diary.

Will Reading – Trailer #2 (updated #11)

Here’s the second (and presumably final) trailer for our movie, Will Reading.   I probably have another two weeks of post production to go and then the movie will finally be one hundred percent complete!   This is a journey that stretches back to 2013 for me, and I can scarcely describe how I feel, so I won’t try.  I will say that I’m very grateful and proud of everyone that worked on the movie and that the result we’ve achieved exceeds my wildest expectations!

Stay tuned to this website and the movie’s Facebook page for updates on when and where you can see the movie!

Here’s a taste of what you’re missing on our Facebook page.

We’re finally on the home stretch, the final leg, the end of principal photography on Will Reading.  I think the hardest bits are behind us and it should be relatively smooth sailing until we finally coast into the port for the final docking.  Boat metaphors.  Continue reading “Will Reading – a movie in production by Saylaco Films (update #8)”

The Prop Table Is taking shape!

Pre Production on Will Reading is about to come to a close. Our little movie’s script has been shaped into a shooting draft, we’ve got a prop list, a shooting schedule… all that good stuff. At this point, I’m just waiting for the last bits of equipment and props to arrive in the mail while I’m putting together storyboards and shot lists for each scene.

Will Reading – a movie in production by Saylaco Films

will-reading-the-movieI’ve been doing movie reviews for a long while, but now, I’m going to put my money where my mouth is (sorta literally) by writing and directing (and, perhaps unwisely, co-starring) in my first feature-length video, Will Reading.  I thought it might be fun to keep a movie production diary now that things are getting started.  Here’s where we are so far.

1st draft is completed (3/19/14)
There’s no movie without a script, and now, after writing on and off for six months or so, the first draft of the script is complete.  Now that I have a feel for the story and the characters, I’ll use the second draft to straighten things out, tighten the bolts on what’s there and add anything that’s missing.  This will most likely only take a week or two.  Then, I’ll print it out and ask for help from Dr. Girlfriend on the third draft…

contacted actor wish list (3/21/14 – 3/24/14)
I have very specific ideas for the performances I’d like to see in each of the roles, so I, in some ways, wrote the story for actors I know.  Hopefully, these folks will be available to/interested in working on this!

one actor signs on  (3/24/14)
So far, I’ve received confirmation from one of the four actors on my list, so… yeah, 25% done here!

ordered the new camera (3/24/14)
I have a camera, and I’ve been amassing equipment for years with the idea of making a feature in mind, but now that it’s actually happening, I’m finally upgrading to a pro camera.  I’ll have to sell a kidney, but that’s life.

That’s about all for now!
