Sorry for the over used Batman quote in the beginning. I just saw no other way to open this post. I was originally going to post that I had auditions today. I also took pictures and stuff. Well, I got three people to show up. That's it. I was pretty upset at first but sitting in an empty meeting room with your thoughts gives you a lot of time to think. This is my first BIG film. I don't want to get people I know to star in the main roles. I don't want to make this look like an amateur film, I want it to look like a real film. I am upset but I realized that this will all soon pass. When this film is behind me and I'm shooting Brotherhood in Blood or Keeping Justice or It's a Madhouse I'll laugh at how childish I was when I first started making movies.
For aspiring filmmakers: Here's where I messed up so you don't do the same
1. Rented space at the library (cheap but not a great place to have auditions).
2. Didn't make appointment times (I seriously thought having an open audition would bring me more people).
3. Not telling everyone I know about this film and have them tell everyone they know (I used twitter and filmincolorado.com and facebook. FIC is the only site to bring anything).
So I'm going to set a date and times for people to come in. I don't know about space yet and am still thinking about it. I plan for two weeks from now to hold auditions. If it doesn't work out to that day, that's okay. I'll make it work. Seriously, cannot stress this enough, HAVE DESIGNATED TIMES FOR PEOPLE TO AUDITION. Maybe you're smart and were like "well duh!" but maybe you're like me and just wanted to have an open time for anyone to drop by. Well either way,
I'm Still In.
