May I brag a bit about last week? It was a good one.

First my feature Surviving Family got an awesome review from Movie Vine:

Then we won 6 awards at our final film festival.

And now I'm off to Florida for some pre-production and research for my next feature, About Us, which shoots Sept and Oct of next year.

I'm happy. But give it a day or 2 - I'm sure to find something to get frustrated over....

Weird, I did not see that this was in the News (http://www.filmmakerforum.org/news/) section. Sorry for the delay in getting this approved.

That's great, Mara! You'll get to Florida just in time for the milder season. Where will you be staying?

I'm spending a few days in Saint Petersburg - it looks like we'll be able to use a place that I really like for a water/boat scene. I've gotten good preliminary feedback, and a meeting pending with the folks in charge.

Then we're going to Savannah, GA to meet with a filmmaker who I know there, and pick his brains (in exchange for dinner!). He shot a feature that I liked a lot in FL and GA.

Then we're driving up the coast mostly along Coastal Route 17 , looking for some interesting places :)

It was a great scouting trip to Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, & North Carolina!
Here's a photo of my lead actress & co-producer Tara Westwood shooting video (flip camera) at Myrtle Beach State Park in South Carolina, where we hope to shoot a couple of scenes.
