I finished the editing of my very first short film. It runs for 8 minutes. I called it "A SIMPLE PLAN". I have sent it out to a couple of professional friend in the US and the response i have been getting has been very encouraging. It will also be featured on a budget filmmaker website in the UK soon. If you want to see, pls feel free to mail me, i'll send it to you. thanks. This is just the beginning.

Still cutting and fitting. One thing i noticed at this juncture was the fact that i should take more shots. There are some gaps that needs to be filled but unfortunately no clip to fill in. I will just make do with the shots i have. Suprisingly the whole sequence is gradually getting shaped up, and its making more sense.

I finally made the giant leap further into the world of movie making today as i shot my very first short film that i intend to run for 10 minutes. Everything went on very smoothly. I was also amazed at the cooperation of my brothers and friends. They really gave me all the support i needed, though i never gave a dime! Thank you so much everyone. I must also say it was a very exhausting day for me, i had to rely on my determination and dreams to carry me through. So, work starts on editing immediately!

Today, i went with one of my friends to do a final check on our location and rehearse my shots. It was a real eye opener for me and it has really boosted my confidence towards what the job i had to face tomorrow.

I seem to have everything in place. I got my camera,tripod,reflector,blue screen material ( cos i will be doing some effects works), tapes, script,my casts and crew (all made up of my friends). No lights-because my location is outdoor, am just gonna use the reflector to get good lighting. No Microphones- because there aren't going to be dialogues on set. any voice overs are going to be recorded in the studio later. I will be shooting on wednesday thats 11th January. I hope for the very best.

Mike Bartlett had my blog featured on his site today( Thanks mike.

The script is actually a very very simple common story but i am relying on my creativity, the use of subtle visual effects and my graphic experience to carry the project to the next level.Infact its a story of a guy trying to woo a girl (as simple as that).I must confess, i have not done this before, but i am very sure i have everything under control.That's why i am taking my time! Anyway, its a test run.
I got in touch with a friend of mine that was a location manager for a drama group back in school. He is to handle my locations issues for me while i'm still touching up the script.

Happy New year, folks! I have drawn out storyboard for my short movie and i am still taking time out to plan how to go about shooting some scenes. Some shots are really very tricky. its took Dupe (my cast)and I some time to figure how we are gonna shot them. For this short movie, i am going to be doing some effects short and it will require that i get a blue or green screen. Wonder what i'll be doing with that! Its all part of the trick. Well, just wait till i get to the buttom of this project!
