After long last, getting the script treatment done was only the beginning, with that coming in at 16 pages, I thought I would have time to relax. With filming beginning less than a month away, I needed to rush to finish draft 1 of the full script. I just finished it as of 2:53am on the morning of december 4th, 2009. It is 72 pages long, and has 122 scenes. We're over the hour mark, but under 90. We're in a good standing personally. This weekend, I'm heading down to Tuscon to finish the documentary I've been working on for a few months now, but during the time in the hotel with nothing to do, I will be starting the scheduling process, since we now have a very accurate number of scenes compared to the treatment because of cuts I've placed in so a scene isn't 3 minutes long, as well as new scenes for character development.
Act 1 is already finished with draft 2 since I have went over it with Danny. I just need to do the same with act's 2 and 3, and then we can begin working on the final draft which should be done before the 12th of december. After the scheduling, I need to work on the shot list, which all of the school shots are 100% worked out. We have over 50... I'm expecting about 500 total for the movie, give for take 100. I'll find out this weekend.
