You know when you’re working on a project for a long time, thinking constantly about, working it through, and then when you finally finish it you feel really lost?
Yeah, I feel like that right now.
I’ve been working on a screenplay for my 3rd year grad film, in one way or another, for close to 6 months now, and now that it’s done and submitted I’m not sure what to do.
I had to submit it by Monday (10/09/12) at 6pm. I spent all weekend and all day Monday furiously redrafting the shit out of it and submitted it at 5:59pm. Phew. But I’m still not totally 100% happy with it and I’m not even certain that I’ll get to make it.
Because now I have to wait for the committee to make they’re selection of 12 films from the many submissions of people on my course who have written screenplays, or treatments if they’re doing a documentary, and then the students (ie. me) then have to apply and pitch for the roles they want on the films actually chosen by the committee.
So I have doubts on whether or not my film will get picked, and even if it does there’s a chance I might not be working on it.
Saying all that though, the film I want to make is a comedy, which is the only comedy actually submitted this year, so maybe that will give me an advantage.
And on the bright side, if I do get to make it, I’ll get to torch a car at one point. That’ll be awesome.
