Spittoon, Please. Not the floor.

This is what it feels like to be me.

This has been another week of delays. It is pretty frustrating. The picture is almost all edited, but sound has not begun, and it seems unlikely I’ll make my October 15 premiere deadline.

I could kick something. I really could.

This, my friends, is the biggest problem with low budget film making. No one takes it seriously. People feel free to interfere and throw things off course. And other people get pissy about working for little or no money, and quit or drag their heels.

Do you know how much I’m getting paid? Nothing. Not one red dime. Do you know how many jobs I’ve done? Let’s see–I wrote it, I directed it, I edited it, I’m doing opening credits and CGI, I was the line producer, I had no assistant director or script supervisor… and I could go on and on.

But I keep pressing on. Because I know what this movie will be worth to me, finished. And I’m not talking about money worth. I am talking about accomplishment-worth.

So today, I am a bit complain-y. And tomorrow, I’ll get back to work. That is how it is, folks.

You just have to keep climbing the mountain. Because I may be in a sucky place in the process, but it is still a pretty awesome process.
