diary of an indie filmmaker, day 3: someone used my soap to kill a spider the size of my fist... crew mutiny takes the form of passive aggression... two can play at this game... or whatever, I don't care...

thwarted second potential coup during lunch... premade sandwiches were presented, obviously filled with some sort of noxious sleep agent...
managed to unmake all the sandwiches and separate meats, cheeses and assorted condiments and hide them around campus... ryan 2, crew 0
mutiny has taken the form of group Rock Band tournament... I fear my invitation to bang on what appears to be black tupperware is a ruse to capture me before first day of shooting tomorrow... I refuse and back out of room slowly... but still hum along because they're playing Modest Mouse... these sneaky bastards have fantastic musical taste...
mutiny appears to be on hold... joviality abounds... my relief is temporary however as I realize dinner is still four hours away...
Cast and crew have bonded over beer and pizza... The seeds of mutiny have been sown... Farewell dear friends...
day 1 smashing success... discovered delicious pizza place around the corner... there was also some rehearsing and set dressing and planning but this pizza is really f*ing good...
Filming at a small college in Connecticut, living in the dorms... Both mattresses in my room have plastic covers... How did they know...
Arrived on set... 100 yards from campus are fro yo place and liquor store... Fears of low
Blood sugar and sobriety dissipating...
diary of an indie filmmaker day 1: forgot to brush teeth before bed. shoot is off to shakey start. no one to blame but myself and tex mex.
En route to Connecticut, shooting a new feature with some badass boys and girls. Keeping a little journal via status updates.

HELP me make my next movie!

Hey! I've been recruited to direct a new movie. There's a catch though, I have to help raise some of the money needed to finish the film. We're trying to raise $10,000 this weekend. Can you help with a $5, $10, or $50 donation? Every donation comes with cool swag, and every donation (even $5!) helps us reach our goal. ...THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING INDIE FILMS :) Click below...
