Production starts Thursday. I have a head cold and scratchy throat (great timing).
I took my kids to see Horton Hears a Who last night, sort of a "last hurrah" before the movie starts up. I really enjoyed it, much to my surprise, as I didn't think it would translate well (especially at feature length). But it did -- moving and funny, though it did drag in a few spots.
We still don't have a convenience store in which to shoot a pivotal scene, though we are making progress on a couple of fronts (I think).
The student crew is in the building today setting up lights, working on production design/art direction stuff, and generally getting the lay of the land.
I can't seem to think straight because of this head cold, so I think I'm going to run out and get some medicine.
The "making of" documentary crew came in a few minutes ago and told me to "be myself" -- which is very hard to do when you're told to do it.
I can't believe we start shooting on Thursday...
