I have just finished making a selftape presentation for my agent to send to casting directors. It’s just a standard selftape that includes my name, age, height, hands, full body, and a 1-minute monologue. I just took a monologue from my horror screenplay which I am going to use this monologue in my upcoming short horror film as well “Final Day,” to make a short film out of it to pitch for fund for my feature film “The Existence.” Next week, I’m going to start looking for cast & crew. Yes, finally, I’m going to make the short film. But I’m also working on my drama screenplay simultaneously. My drama film is not listed anywhere because I plan to send the script to screenplay competitions only. And I am not allowed to make a film out of it, yet. So, that drama filmmaking project will be put on hold for a while. If I don’t win the contest, I will, definitely, make the movie myself. That’s the plan.
Tonight, I will continue to work on my drama screenplay as much as I can, to really finish it. But although I am not finished with it yet, I have to start filming my short film anyway. If I waited for my drama script to complete first before I could do anything else, I could be waiting for very long time. Who knows. There may be things that I have to change again and again. So I must start working on the making of my horror short film “Final Day” at the same time, to actually create something along the way. I don’t want to waste my time no more on just one project when I, probably, can do another project alongside it. This horror short film doesn’t take long time to shoot anyway. It’s just one scene. It might take just a day to film. So if I had all cast & crew ready next week, I could be finishing my short horror film the week after.
