The day of our first Table Read has arrived ! We will be gathering to read the script and talk about the movie and getting to know the cast members .
I look at the cast and crew of Sins of Man II : Vengeance as a team and together any team can win it all, right ? When you take a group of individuals and you all come together to work towards a common goal you become a team and you all work hard and push each other to make things work no matter what .
We are location scouting with several locations to look at and lock down. Things are in full swing and believe it or not it's all still shocking to me that I'm working on my 2nd feature film .
Looking back a year ago when we were getting ready to shoot Sins of Man : Rise of Mortis it was all so new to me, the stress was mounting and I knew it was it was going to be an uphill battle but a battle that could be won if I refused to quit.
I remember thinking about a dozen times the first weekend of shooting "This is never going to work" and after the again the second weekend of shooting I thought the same thing and then something changed and everyone really came together and we all decided that we were going to finish this film no matter what, and we did it and we are all very proud of the film and the returning cast members loved the script for Vengeance and are very excited to work on this movie .
I think about what everyone put into making this movie happen every time I look at the DVD in my office or the poster from the DVD Release party, that might sound weird but I do . I know the best is yet to come because we're going to shake Sandy Creek Maine to it's core with the things we have planned in Sins of Man II : Vengeance !! We have more action in this film, more blood, guts, gore, more brutal scenes and a great story.
As we are well into preproduction we are inching closer to the start date of shooting and I know I'm better prepared for this task then I was on the first movie, we have added safe guards behind the scenes so I don't get over whelmed with all the asks I have to do as well as being in the movie . I'm focused and ready to make this happen ! The shooting schedule is basically worked out I just need to put on the actual shooting schedule forms .
I ordered a clapper to make it easier for my editor to piece the film together. I have more hands behind the scenes this time around also. While this is only my 2nd film I feel much more prepared this time around then I ever did on the set of Rise of Mortis and I thin kit's because I was doing so much stuff both in front of the camera and behind the scenes that I really didn't have a chance to take in what was happened until it was all over. I thins now with Vengeance I will have a chance to enjoy it more because I'm not doing 900 jobs I can focus on makeup FX, shooting my scenes and directing the movie.
I'm excited to start shooting the movie and making magic happen again, I really want fans to look at this movie and think Wow ! this guy makes good movies !!
STAY HUMBLE, STAY HUNGRY MY FRIENDS :)
