Quoted from bert
What is a DP, and why do we need one?


Don't worry, Bert, I didn't know what it meant when I first saw it on a website either.  It means Double Penetr-...  Wait, that's another site.  On this one, it'll mean Director of Photography more often than not.

Sorry, guys, but I couldn't resist.  :-)  I just wish I wasn't a couple months late to the party.

The collaboration sounds exciting, though, and it sounds like everything's coming together.  Congrats Pia and Bert and George and possibly Sean.

I remember reading this one.  It sounds like it'll be a lot of fun to film.

I haven't made a lot of updates here lately. Mainly because I didn't want people's expectations to be too high...like our own "SS Prometheus" and then people would be disappointed when they finally get to see the film.  

Anyway, i've been working pretty hard on it and we're hoping to shoot this in the beginning of July. If we miss that then it won't happen until August because the DP, David Ulloa is going on another adventure for two weeks. He does really exciting things all the time. I'd love to be his intern.

Here is a link to our shooting script in case anyone is interested. Them That's Dead shooting script

Some things will be different in the film compared to the script. Little things like, the Princess Palm. There are no palm trees on the beach. Simple reason like that. A few other things too, but we're sticking close to the script otherwise.

Will this turnout the way bert envisioned it? Probably not because he saw it his way when he wrote it. I saw it my way when I read it. Hopefully the way we both see it won't be too different though.  

I'm meeting tomorrow morning with our Voodoo Pirate. Oh yeah, the gypsy is not a gypsy anymore.    We're going over her character and her costume. Friday we have a table read and costume check at my house. Next week another production meeting.

I'll keep you posted.  

I forgot. I should probably mention that the reason there is no cover page is that this script is in a folder together with the shot list and storyboard and script breakdown and it has the title on the folder. All key people in the crew has their own folder.

WHAT?!?!?

I suppose you would also sketch a handlebar moustache onto the Mona Lisa?  Perhaps you should add a few giraffes to Botticelli’s Primavera while you are at it -- and why not a cadre of kazoos for Beethoven's Fifth???

Kidding aside, I am very grateful for the opportunity to watch you piece this together.

Cast, locations, props -- and all that technical stuff that is just beyond me -- she is one smart cookie, and more clever than I'll bet many of you know.  I am learning quite a bit about what happens to a script by "watching" her take this journey.

And for the record -- script-wise -- our gal has complete freedom to do whatever she deems fit to get the job done.  Just saying.

I am just really pleased it is you doing this and not some stranger operating under radio silence.


Hey, it's my tiny, little IMDb!

LOL! You're being very kind!!!!

I just wanted you and all other writers to know that seldom do the films turn out looking the way they had in mind while writing the story. As you know, I've had a LOT of shorts made by now. Anything from student films to pretty serious productions and none of them have looked the way I imagined. I think the one that have come the closest was actually Cornetto's The Dark series make of Issues. It doesn't mean I didn't like the films, just trying to prepare you, is all.  

Btw, when I send you your DVD copy, I'll send you one of the crew folders as well, just so you can get a feel of what is involved.

Read the shooting script. Dig it! Nice foreshadowing by the spirit maiden and her lend to the title. Assuming that's Pia's daughter's part? I won't have any problem watching her laced in sea-weed and not much else.

How do you plan to do the filed down teeth on Brocc/Brock? --I say that because your hack writer flubbed up his name once in the script. pg6/ Scene 9 if you give a shit, Bert...

I'm afraid you'll be disappointed there. There's no way I could get her to even get her hair wet. and you can forget about the seaweed.

This is a pic of Gulley. I personally love it.


Getting closer to shooting and I'm getting very excited about it.

Good luck with it Pia and look forward to the release.

It's great to see a project go from start to finish and being able to compare the script to the final product so looking forward to it.

Regards Alex

A few people have asked me how the shoot went and since they are not on my FB they don't get updates so I figured I'll post a couple of pics here...since it's slow here anyway.

Can't wait to see this. Looks like it's coming along nicely. Hopefully...

On a side note, mind splitting that booty you got there in the second pic. I've always been nice to you...lol

Whatever you say Pia. I'm sending you my address through pm.   

Back to the short,

Is this encouraging you to direct a feature some time soon or you'll settle with screenwriting only?  

When's the estimated date this will prob be finished?

Sorry if I'm asking too many questions. Just curious.
