Working Hard, or Hardly Working?

Gather round boys and girls, we have a much-needed update.

We've been hard at work on the movie, taking time out of busy schedules to write for no money. So we can't really say it's been paying off, but we're enjoying ourselves. We have pretty much half of the movie written in treatment form, and we have a good idea of what happens in the rest of it. For those that don't know, a treatment is the movie written out in story form and is usually 3-4 pages for a feature-length script. So we have a long way to go for the 120 pages of a typical screenplay, but we're making steady progress. Once we figured out the major character Jason mentioned in his last post, the entire first act fell into place. That meant we had to reconsider most of the third act, but it's going to be a lot better than we originally planned.

One thing that became clear about the third act is that we want it to culminate at Jeff Mach's Wicked Winter Renaissance Faire. Wicked Faire has been described in many ways. Jessie likes to say that it is "teh awesome," and that it is a con at which people from many overlapping subcultures get together for fun and profit. At Wicked Faire one is likely to run into rennies, trekkies, Star Wars nerds, comic book geeks, cosplayers, goths, gamers, steampunkers, erotic hypnotists, zydrate addicts, and kinky people. It's a 16+ event and there's an 18+ room for various adults-only wares and performers. We're going to be at this year's Faire in Whippany, NJ from Feb. 20-22 doing "research" for the movie. We promise to work hard and not have any fun.

Also, there's going to be a shadowcasting of Repo! The Genetic Opera, and the co-creator/co-star/artist Terrance Zdunich will be there signing autographs, selling zydrate, and hopefully coming to our party! *Fangirl moment*

Anyway, back to the movie. One of the scenes we recently wrote for the second act provides an un-clumsy place to explain a lot about polyamory and how it works for real people (even though our characters are figments of our imaginations, they're still real to us!).

That's it for now, kids. Back to the salt mines. Maybe we'll see you at Wicked Faire!
