I’ve been trying to make a movie since fifth grade, and have attempted it a few times in the past. However, only my most recent attempt, Hunter, came even remotely close to actually being filmed. Unfortunately, it still failed, largely due to script problems.
In an attempt to fix that, I’ve written an entirely new script, tentatively titled Everyone and No One, though I may change that. A few of the characters from Hunter have been carried over, but the storyline and the rest of the characters are new. As it stands now, the script still has a few issues I’d like to address, which I will in the coming days. Unfortunately, I don’t have the luxury of another full rewrite. All the actors I know will soon begin working a Shakespeare production scheduled to premiere in December, so if I’m going to make this work, it’s got to be soon. Not everything can be perfect.
Now for the good news: Everyone and No One should be a lot easier for me to film than Hunter would’ve been. It has a significantly smaller main cast, and was written with locations I can easily get in mind. Despite all this, making a movie still won’t be easy. As the great Teddy Roosevelt (and the not-quite-as-great Bob Kelso) once said, nothing worth doing is easy. Though I don’t completely agree with this principle (there are some easy things I quite enjoy), it certainly applies here.
Only time will tell if this goes well. Wish me luck.
