Quoted from Grandma Bear

Can't do that. The man playing Vernon lives like three or four hours away.



That's a great idea. I need to go over all his dialogue and see what can be used.  


Coil. Hope it works

Great idea, Dave. Fingers crossed it works for you, Pia.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this.

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.

Thanks Khamanna for checking it out.

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.

Just bumping this because I know it will be buried once the OWC scripts are up, but the film is just about finished!!!!! I think quite a few of you that might watch will recognize some of the changes that made it into the film that are all thanks to your input.  

Interesting thing is that the script is 13 pages and dialogue heavy. As we all know, dialogue usually moves along quicker on film than action heavy scripts. I thought this one would play out at around 12 minutes. I was way wrong! It's 19 freaking minutes long! I've seen it maybe 15 times by now and I don't think it drags, but I could be biased... I wish it was shorter, because hardly no one watches a short that long. If you end up watching it, I'll love you forever.  

Anyway, keep an eye out. It should be posted any day.

So, this took a lot longer to finish than I thought, but here it is.  

It's also a lot longer than I would've predicted. The script was 13.5 pages and the film five minutes longer. It will be tough getting viewers, lol. I know the sweet spot is 5 mins or less.

I think this is probably Dena's and my best effort yet.

Thank you everyone who read and commented. Some of you will see changes made thanks to your input.

Well done, Pia... and Dena.

Do you have plans for festivals with this one? If so, what tier of festival are you going to aim for? Any prestigious ones?

I really enjoyed that and got me a bit emotional, well done.

I was thinking how good it would be with a bigger budget and shoot the traumatic scenes they spoke about with V.O.

Best thing you and Dena have done so far! Congrats. You must be pretty darned thrilled.

Pia, how did you end up doing the final call to the son? It was a point of contention post filming I recall.
However you did it you got the tone exactly right.

P.S. I noticed the other day Dena has ducked out of SS. I hope that's temporary...
