Wow. The end of the year is here. It's also the end of senior year. Which means I'm leaving Ladue and its awesome facilities sooner rather than later. My short film was very well received and I'll post it to my videos page after I finish selling DVDs but don't tell the people I sold the DVDs I said that. This year, as stressful as it was at times, has simply flown by. It seems like only yesterday I was comparing script ideas with Alek, Lizzie, Will, Antonio, and Mr. Goble. Now, my film has debuted and soon I'll soon finish up the DVD. Many thanks to my actors: Sam Israel, Hope Williams, Alice Hsu, and Graves Gladney. Many thanks to Alek, Lizzie, Will, and Antonio for their help with technical equipment and advice for improvement. And a HUGE thanks to Mr. Goble, Mrs. Davidson for their faith in me and their continued support of the video program at Ladue. And last, but certainly not least, a large thank you to my mom and dad for their patience and everlasting support of my exploration into this art form. As to my future of video making, I definitely plan to continue. The college I'm attending has an annual film festival which I plan on taking part in. Perhaps this summer I'll post some of my videos to YouTube or Vimeo. In the meantime, keep checking this site for more videos, whether they're official commercials or just creative projects.
Well...the film is due this Friday and I wrapped up reshoots yesterday. I'm confident I can finish my film in time for my school's film festival on April 18th. It's at 7 PM in our school's auditorium. Tickets are $5 each and I encourage anyone to come out and see my film and the four others that my classmates have made. Five films for five dollars is a deal you cannot refuse. We will be honoring the actors that night also. Hope to see you there!
