So I guess I should tell you the story of this movie I'm currently working on.
About a year ago I got this idea for something to write. I decided to write it into a screenplay. Mainly because I'd never written a screenplay before and I wanted to try it out.
The more I wrote it the more I enjoyed it. The more I envisioned me making a movie. The more I liked that idea.
Fast forward several months. I was at Best Buy talking to one of the guys working there. He's a filmmaker. He said he was looking for a writer and he gave me his card. I started work on my script again.
I finished it and let my friends and family read it. But I was nervous. It took a few months before I actually summed up the courage to email him.
I emailed him my script pretty much saying that if he liked it I'd like to work with him in the future. He sent me his phone number and told me to call him.
I called him up and he told me he loved my script. And that he wants to make it. He wants to work with me and he was impressed with me as a writer.
So right now we're casting for this short film that he and I are gonna direct. We're gonna make it on pretty much a $0 budget.
So yeah, it's kinda exciting.
