We have begun rehearsals for 'Seems L ike Teen Spirit'. A full read through of the script will occur next week, at an as yet undecided date, to give me an idea of any changes that are required, as well as the general pacing of the film.
We having already begun rehearsing individual scenes, and once this has been completed my main focus will become the lighting and sound production aspect of the film. If everything goes to plan, I would hope to begin filming in September 2011, in view of a late December wrap.
However this still seems a long way away, and directing amateur actors for the next week is going to be an interesting journey. I end this weeks post with a quote from director James Cameron: 'The best thing for an aspiring director to do is to remove the word aspiring'.
This seems pertinent for my position at the moment, and it seems trying to make the transition from aspiring director to published director is a fun but complicated and lengthey journey.
