(yes, yes, I know I could've posted this in my existing Fanfilms thread, but just in case people are loath to scroll all the way through that one....well, this is as good a place as any for it, so bear with me) Now, then.... As we all know, I'm working on my vignette thing, and so far, still so good....I've already storyboarded out a little bit of it, and admittedly it may not be my forte - but, hey, so long as it gets the point of the scene across, then all's well....and you don't have to draw like Picasso to accomplish that. Thank the Force. But aside from that, and a few minor, though pressing and concerning details that I'll address here shortly - the main thing I wanted to point out is that I am hoping, and planning - that is to say, it is my express intent - to start actual production of the vignette piece....filming, in other words....by mid-August. For sure I don't want to leave it much later than that at all....and, indeed, considering the very nature of the project and the fact it's so short - well, I imagine that it could be done within the space of a day....or maybe two or three days if specific scene lighting is a concern. And I can see the advantages of that too. Now....here is the major issue for me at present, and I am *really* hoping that someone can help me out. I have been trying to get in contact with Saber_Caddy (Jer), but as of yet have been unable to reach him; he hasn't logged into the boards in quite some time....a few weeks at least....and as of yet I haven't received any reply through E-mail directly - oh, help! The reason I'm pressing the issue is quite simple....that I *do* very much require his help and participation in the project....I had him in mind for it from the outset....and I am really, deeply, and *most* sincerely hoping that someone knows how I can reach him within the next few weeks at the absolute most. But *far* sooner rather than later, certainly. Because while I am willing to resort to other choices if crunch time arrives and I've not been able to reach him....well, I'd *really* rather it if it didn't come to that, is all! You see what I'm saying, of course. It just that sometimes filmmakers have their first preferences and really don't want to settle for anything else if they can help it....it's all about preserving the integrity of the original idea, and all that. But, yes....please, by all means, if anyone knows how I can reach our very own Saber_Caddy, *do* let me know....and I hope to get all this resolved very soon! Phew.... Thanks, guys, Dawn.
