indie! your my best frieeeend! wake up indie!

it was. it was shot at barnsley gardens in adairsville. it was on a big wrap-around front porch replete with hornets. it was the interns housing. it was actually 3 old houses hammered together with planks. it was perfect for leslie's indie short too hot for summer.
the bathroom available to us was hidden in the civil war room. which is haunted by a ghost. so they took the doorknob off. the bathroom was criss-crossed with spider webs. scooby-doo was scared by the ghost, driven into the spider webs, and without a doorknob to get out yelled for raggy's help.
i was in my underwear nearly all day. as were leslie and maryk. not mine, theirs. too hot for clothes.
and when the rain came, not only were we refreshed by the coolness, but the tap-tapping on the tin roof made filmmaking impossible. it is possible that we didn't actually finish shooting the movie. it is possible something was missed. i mean, we got it all shot from at least one angle. when the sun was out. and parts of it from another angle. when the sun was blocked.
i'm in my underwear right now. ready for my close-up, mr. hooker.

I have the same worries.
I would like to do that more often, though. And wish it didn't take push push or a film competition to get us to do it. We could come up with a pretty good collection of stuff, I bet.
Now, a reason to do it....

that's what i'm hoping. and that the continuity won't be too problematic. and that the audio is ok. it didn't rain here in atlanta at all, i don't believe. torrential downpours, though, where the ghost was, not wanting us to film at his house.

Ghosts have weather controlling powers?

i sat in on jed's meteorology class in college, and they made it clear that "weather" as we call it is ghosts either peeing, opening their ghost freezer doors, stoking a ghost campfire, farting over the tops of waves.
they just can't open a door without a knob.

That bathroom was in the Ruins. The Civil War Room is in the Rice House, and there is no bathroom in it.

Those were cumulostratosghostitisflatulate clouds. I got a "C" because we'd skip that class to get high and play frisbee.
