Tomorrow, will scout for locations for the zombie short film

So tomorrow, I’ll be scouting for locations for the upcoming zombie short film. We’ll be filming next weekend. I’m looking forward to working with an actress you’ve seen several times.

If I enjoy working with someone, I hire them back. Of course, granted they have talent.

Anyways, the zombie film. It will be outdoors rather than indoors. I’ll probably film it in a place with a lot of oaks because oak trees are naturally pretty spooky.

Whenever you see a cheesy Halloween special, it always has oak trees if it’s outdoors. There’s a good reason for that.

Horror is all about timing

So, I need to get the timing right. Too fast and it’s either not scary or the audience gets sick and stops watching. Too slow and you get bored.

So much I have to learn still. But then again, it’s all a learning experience.

I’m actually glad I’m starting this stuff out with a smaller audience. It will be on our VidMe channel and I won’t even bother releasing it to YouTube. I’m quickly becoming sick of their bullshit. (If you have a YT channel, you probably know what I’m talking about).

The best way to learn something is by doing. As much as I’m working on making it as a musician and a writer, I want to be very well rounded. I also want to add video to that list of skills I’m good at.

I’m not there yet, but like I said, you learn by doing. I think Kristy Jessica is a much better director and editor than I am. I’m trying to get up to her level. No coincidence she’s as popular as she is. As hard as I think I work, I’ve seen her in action. She works even harder.

Down the road, I’m actually going to hire her to direct and edit one of our music videos. She’s got a talent for telling a story.

Anyways, just wanted to get this off my chest. I like writing about everything.
