It is so much fun to be writing a script again. It's been a long time but it's coming together really strong. It's also fun to be writing scenes that we can shoot in Iowa city. There's a lot of freedom coming with this one. It's also a very different story from Secret Fortunes. It's much darker, more adult, with darker and less defined characters. I'm also loving the cliffhangers.

Met with Susanna yesterday and recorded some V.O. dialogue. The best way to do it was to use the HD camera with the best microphone and do it in the studio so I set it up with lights and everything. It may have been a bit more than I needed, come to think about it, but I figured the production after me could save time by having everything in place. Turns out they ended up rearranging the studio but I at least got in the experience.
It's coming together now. Also was able to see the first promo broadcast on PATV. It's really very exciting. I'll be going over Wednesday to edit and the plan is to finish it off next Saturday.

I've started work on a script using this character and her world. I got quite a bit done this weekend and I'm very excited about it. It's going to be fun doing something with an almost contemporary setting and only one special effect. I'm purposefully picking public places in Iowa City we could easily shoot scenes at. The big goal is also to expand my acting stable and have more characters. As much as I want to avoid it I may have to do one of the roles.



We are floating in space above earth. Beneath us we can clearly see the North American continent. The sun is just going down over the western horizon. All is silent and peaceful for a while then there 25 bright flashes across the face of the continent. They are burning nuclear explosions lighting up the night at strategic points across the United States.
