Ok, so I decided to start a thread on the current project that I am starting. I am in early pre on a short titled Twelve, Twelve, Twelve. It is the first film I will have shot that I have not written. Here is a synopsis of the film:
After a violent attack leaves her homebound and suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, the once beautiful and vivacious JULIA develops a series of obsessive compulsive rituals to bring order and control to her chaotic inner life. But now, the very rituals that saved her threaten to rob her of what’s left of her sanity. When her attacker, ED MITCHELL, returns to finish the job he started, Julia can’t be sure whether he’s real or a just another figment of her delusions.
The script is 9 pages and takes place in one apartment location. I am in the process of putting my team together which currently include Geoff Foley – Producer, Myself – Director, and Thomas Koch – Director of Photography. We have a handful of people in mind, all professionals, in the other key roles. With Thomas on board we will be shooting on the 5D. I am aiming for an mid-May shooting schedule which will take place over 3 days and I am looking for this to be shot around the San Jose area.
I am currently in the extensive search for the female lead in the coming month in both L.A. and S.F. where auditions are being held. They will join the male lead in the film Brett Rickaby (http://www.brettrickaby.com/) who has signed on to play the role of Ed Mitchell.
I’ll try to keep everyone updated as new information comes in and posting stills once we start rehearsals. I’m doing this mainly because these are the threads I enjoy reading. This should be the last short film I partake in before rolling on a feature later this year. I enjoy doing shorts due to their quick turnaround time and it allows me to hone my skills and meet people that I can take along with me building a great experienced crew. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
Also...just some modest begging. Here is the link to the films Kickstarter page:
If you can spread the word I'd greatly appreciate it. I know filmmakers don't have deep pockets but hopefully we have networks, web pages, etc. we can post things on and that's all I am asking for. So take a look and if you have any questions feel free to post them or send them to me.
Thank you for any and all help in advance.
