I was doing a bit of calculations and realized that since today, we have exactly 40 days and 40 nights left before the shootings start. Because of this biblical number, I decided to start blogging daily (well, save the weekends) about the progress of the production on my Director’s Diary.
Although we’re getting closer to the shoot, we still have quite a lot of things that are still not in place, and the last 40 days to make every little detail to be in as good shape as possible, to eliminate all the unpleasant surprises coming along our way in the shootings. But right now, we’re quite well equipped, and I’m so excited to start the shootings. But nervous at the same time, there’s no question about it. This is my first professionally produced feature film, and we’ve been working on this ever since 2006 – that’s four years – and there hasn’t been one day during that time that I haven’t been thinking about the shootings. And now, as we are at the doorsteps of this actually happening, I feel unprepared. And I know I am not, but there’s no way helping to feel like that. It’s like a war – you can spend all the time you want planning the attack with your generals, but when the troops are unleashed on the battlefield, there’s no stopping them.
But luckily, my general staff is top notch. We’re gonna nail this bastard. But not without your help.
Fighting the Good Fight,
And here’s the first of the Director’s Diaries.
