Filmwise:

  • Mesocafé: Earlier in the week, Daniel got in touch with a couple of queries about the rushes for the green screen scenes. I have spent this weekend re-checking the files he has to make certain that nothing is amiss. Earlier this evening, Daniel sent me the great news that he’s ploughed through the whole list of scenes. There is one remaining scene which I added to the list yesterday.

New script: This weekend, I finally had the opportunity to read through the whole of the treatment for my next feature. As I have related in the past, this is a romantic comedy the initial outline for which I began scribbling around the time we were in pre-production for Mesocafé, and started a more serious attempt at an outline in the summer of 2009.

Alas, due to the need to think about the best route for addressing the technical glitch with the screener we showed at Raindance in October, I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I would have liked with the new script this weekend.

I have a day booked off work at the end of the month that precedes a weekend. Hopefully, I will use those three days off work to get some real traction on the new script.

Finally, I have just watched the BAFTA Awards – so moved by Martin Scorsese’s humility and generousity as he received the fellowship of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Peace and love,

Ja’far
