Processing Film, BNC and Non-Profits

I finally got paid. This may not seem like much to everyone else, but to an atypical starving artist, this is a major development. I had been in a drought for a couple of weeks, and now I am free!

What does this mean? Well, I made a few important musical gear purchases, I ordered a part which will allow me to capture video and begin editing some work, and now I can have the film from "The Pass" developed. I still have a few scenes to shoot for "Water from the Mountain", so "The Pass" will receive treatment first. My plan is to have this film edited by the end of March.

So, tomorrow I am making my way to Alpha Cine, hopefully in time to speak with them about my processing needs. I should have the film by the weekend, and then the editing can begin. There are two things that will delay the finished product: we are traveling to Victoria this next weekend, and I may shoot the end scene again. I did not like my location in Bothell as much as I like the scene just outside of the Green Bean, where the film took place. I just received written permission from the photographer whose work appeared at the Green Bean and subsequently a scene of the film. All the proverbial ducks are in their rows.

The snow film just isn't going to happen, at least not with any snow! It is called "Spring in Winter", and I can either wait until next year or shoot it without snow. I have not decided.

February is also the month for the RPM Challenge, and I have new lyrics and poetry written...the next step is recording it! I have until Noon on March 1st.

There are other possibilities taking shape...helping a friend with his film projects, helping another friend with her editing project, and as I try my hand at music vids, I may be producing a full DVD of a local band. Busy, busy, busy!

I can't just stop there! I am finally taking a look at establishing Blue November Creations as a legal business entity, and I am also looking at Non-Profit status for the Film Festival and related ventures. It is going to be a busy week, but I am dreaming without borders, and for that, I am very happy! I will keep you posted on future endeavors. Cheers!
