And action!

My order of more Mini DV tapes came yesterday! I am planning to film the rest of the PSA this friday.

Before then though, new year, new theatre semester! Pinocchio is going to get underway, and each of my students will be given a riddle they must give an answer for (in character) before the play is over.

The riddle is: "If Pinocchio says his nose will grow, what will happen?"

The problem for those un-mathematically minded: Pinocchio's nose grows when he lies, but if he says his nose will grow, is he lying? But if it grows.. was he telling the truth?

Got a guess? Leave it as a comment!

Hello from Georgia!

So, on that film I was trying to do. I did get a scene filmed, but unfortunately, didn't have enough time or tape to finish it.

The film is a PSA about not wasting time, which is appropriate since that's what I've been trying to beat latey. ;)

The mistake I made though, in tyring to do it fast, was actor prep.When you only have an hour to film, and are dealing with children, they don't work that fast. So I made the decision to film when I get back and theere's more time.

So, when I get back, it's filming time!
