Thanks Libby! Having seen the rough cut, I think it's one of my better films that I have produced/directed, but as always there are glaring things that I wish I could've done better. This ain't easy! If you have your scripts produced, give the filmmakers a break when you watch the final film.
Just read it, canít believe itís the first time I see this script. I really like it and thinking that Daveís idea is pretty good. Hope it turns out something you like. And yes, itís so hard to shoot and make it alive. I tried both my own scripts and few others. It might be a great script but something is always off seemingly when you start shooting it. I wanted to suggest cutting some of the dialogue but thinking you should keep it all. The details of their hardships is the essence of this movie so I really hope youíll find the way to keep it all. And the ending is pretty powerful. I happen to have a few depressed people in my life now and it just rang a bell for me. Thatís very close to life. Very nice.
I do remember seeing one of your shorts you made once, but it's been a long time. I think you were in Texas at the time.
It is indeed very hard. I'm going to try to do my part, meaning going over it a hundred times and then discuss with editor before vacation. Dena has some festivals she'd like to see us enter with deadlines in January, so we'll see if we can make it.
