Awesome job, Pia! Glad to see you're not giving up on this. That de noising software did an amazing job. Those stills look great! I always thought you were screwed if you didn't have enough light to start. Can't wait to see it.

Pia, the first part of your post saddens me...


Quoted Text
I decided that I just couldn't do it. Call it giving up if you will,


Well, I'm sorry you didn't finish that vampire sequel... but I wouldn't call it giving up since...


Quoted Text
floodgates opened up and I wrote two features in just four months! I'm almost finished a third one for this year, so in the end.


A lot of folks can't do that.^^^

Hopefully one day you can go back and finish that vampire sequel... if anything... just to bring things full circle.

You're a very talented writer.  Give yourself more credit.

And yes, like everyone else... I'm anxiously waiting to see the finished product.

Gah!  You're telling me.

Everytime a see a still I have to wonder, "What the heck is she complaining about??"

She is such a harsh critic of her own work it's amazing she ever gets anything done at all.

How is George coming on the music?  I want accordions!

It used to be that you were totally screwed, but I guess there are some amazing softwares out there and amazing young editing students that truly are magicians.

Pia, the first part of your post saddens me.
Sometimes you just have to be realistic. I tried so hard to become a competitive horse rider, which I was when I was young in Sweden, but after ten years and too many serious accidents, I realized I was too old to pick that sport up again. I could still ride in different more "safe" disciplines, but I decided not to. That's not in my heart.

Thanks!    My goal now is to make those features better.

Arterial Motives the script is being shopped right now even though a film has already been shot. I know. Weird. Don't ask.

You probably will regardless of how it turns out.  


Quoted from bert
She is such a harsh critic of her own work.

Well, some people that have seen parts of it, told me I let the actors overact too much, so I lost some confidence there. To me, this is a period piece, so I thought it would work...


Quoted from bert

He's waiting for an edit where everything is locked as far as the sequence goes.

I'm excited to see this one, too!

I feel you on the writer's block, Pia.  For what I've been working on recently, mine's not so much a block as much as what I was starting to write after page 60 wasn't great and I don't like not having that confidence that I usually write with.  But, I'm going to take a day or two break from it and see if I can come back and get my regular voice back.

I'm happy to hear you're back to the grind again!

The contrast in the stills is pretty amazing!  What camera did you use for filming?  I apologize if the question's been asked already and I missed it somewhere.

George has some very general themes at this point. Once Pia has locked down the form of it, I can mold the themes into her framework to make it sing. And synthed accordians sound weird, but I'll see what I can do. I assume you're looking for polka music, which I believe would work well with the piratey theme.

Polka music?  For reals?


To ski or not to ski...that's not even a question.

Really?  Is that what I am asking for?

One problem with George is you can seldom tell when he is teasing you or not.

But I meant, like, sea chantys and stuff -- but I was also kind of goofing around, too.  I mean, it is not like I am a huge fan of the accordion or anything.

Music is your angle, George.  Do not let me boss you around -- as if you would.  Do what works best, and don't shoehorn something in just because a musical ignoramus such as myself said you should.

Quoted from Angry Bear
...the film came off more comedic than I probably had intended due to me letting the actors over do some of their stuff...especially since the dialogue is written the way it is...


Some of the more comic elements to the dialogue were definitely intentional, and the roles were meant to be "overplayed" to a certain extent.  Gulley, in particular, was an exaggerated character.

At least, this is what I was doing, and it sounds like the actors may have picked up on that.


Quoted from Angry Bear
And, I know George will do an amazing job!  


While I will stop short of adding a smooch, I have a lot of confidence in the multi-talented Mr. Willson, as well.  No pressure, George haha.

So, I see Don has posted up the film in the original script thread.

It therefore seems timely to give this thread a bump as well.

I love it, but I am biased.  I will save my comments until Pia has checked in -- as she did far, far more than I in bringing this home.

I see Don added the film.  

As many of you know, this film almost didn't happen thanks to some serious technical issues we had during filming. But, here it is. Is it anywhere near what I had in mind when I set out to do this? Not really, but that is all my fault for unwittingly choosing extremely difficult locations. Not only was it during night hours, it was also shot on a beach and a national monument! It was also 2hrs away from where we all lived so food and lodging had to be factored in too. Some people have suggested that we should've just gone back to reshoot some of this stuff, but logistically that just wasn't possible.

Bert has said he likes it. That makes me very happy! Is it what he imagined? Probably not, but I think he knows I loved the script from day one and all of us involved did our very best with it.

Wow! I've followed your project from the beginning and with all the issues you had I didn't expect it to be that good...but it WAS! Congrats Pia! You had some REALLY great shots in this film. You've really grown as a director. Can't wait to see what you do next!
