Firing up again!

Yesterday we had another meeting of my film group and have two project shoots planned for July now. I am so ready to go! Still a lot to be done.

I only have the outline of story No.2, so need to write dialogue, preferably before next week’s meeting. It’s a fun story about a camping trip gone bad, with a twist at the end. Can’t tell you much more about it though, got to keep up the suspense!

I also need to get the AFP website up and running, including the short that we filmed in March. We have a website up at the moment, but it doesn’t let us play a movie so I am working on fabricating a website from scratch. Steep learning curve!

Next to this I am still working hard to re-edit my first novel, so the first seventy pages are not just information without action. It’s a tough job, but it has to be done. My stick behind the door for that one is that I really, really like to re-launch my books with the new covers!

And I need to get writing on the last book of the trilogy, but I’m afraid that will have to wait until after July and we have done the filming.

Apart from this I need to organise carpet for my bedroom, put a second paint layer on the walls and paint the skirting boards, preferably before the carpet is put in.

Whaaahh!!!

  1. Hi Jacky,

    Is the website on WordPress? If so, upgrading to the premium plan ($99) will allow you to host and stream video. That is what I am doing for the audio on my site. Sounds like you have a lot of great creative stuff going on – enjoy!

    1. Thanks for the tip, dw, but that is way too expensive. I’ve found a way to stream my video online in a compressed format without quality loss (using a program called Handbreak). Now I need to integrate WordPress into my static website to be able to blog. It’s a long way round, but at least it won’t cost me anything 😊.
