Anyone got a spare firewire drive?
I simply do not have the money to purchase a new firewire drive right now. So the project is stalled, in a sense, because of finances. I have finally paid Darius for his time. I have still to pay the remaining amount to Tim and Morgan (Fox not Stewart, sorry girl!) and then I will be clear to focus on the smaller accounts payables still outstanding. I have completed 1 of 4 documents necessary to get my deposit back from SAG. That is a full detailed budget. Hopefully the other three will be smooth, and out of that money I can pay off Morgan and Tim.
As for the firewire drive, I am hoping for a small payment for a job I hope to finish in the next two days. That way I could purchase the drive this week, and be underway again.
At the Media Co-op today, Andrew, Morgan and Suzie saw the scenes I cut in Dallas. I was nervous, because I only expected to be showing them to Andrew, but Morgan and Suzie's presence was appreciated in the end. Especially because they know what is helpful to say and what is not it seems. In other words no commenting on the sound quality or the length of the scenes.
This weekend is a Spike Lee festival at the Ridgeway Four. I strongly recommend EVERYONE going to see Do The Right Thing as it has a strong conceptual relationship to Dollars & Signs and is the the film which originally flipped the "I might wanna be a filmmaker" switch in my head. Shit, if I had any discretionary income I would take all of you there. Oh, and my 30th birthday is Thursday. Love me.
