Code Six: Day One.

For those of you who aren’t aware, I am preparing a short movie to submit to Kevin Smith’s new contest over at

It’s shaping up to look like a lot of dick and fart jokes are being sent in along with the little ‘artistic’ pieces that ‘film students’ are submitting. I like neither.

I don’t really want to go into the details of my story online, for obvious reasons, but it’s called Code Six, and it revolves around two Detectives, one of which has to deal with a situation at home which he didn’t really expect he’d have to face so soon.

Our first day of shooting was on Wednesday. I had expected it to be partly cloudy to sunny all day, and it turned to dark and rainy. It’s really hard to call off a production shoot when you’ve begged and pleaded with everyone to take time out of their day for something that you so adamantly believe in and manage to talk them into doing.

So we get out to our first location, and this truck comes down the narrow path that we’re on, stops, then turns around and drives off. I didn’t think anything of it until two police cars pull up behind us.

“What can I do for you, officer?” I said. Stone cold he replies; “What are you boys throwing out in the lake?” I was like, what the fuck? Apparently, what I think what happened was, in that truck this redneck assed fisherman found us in his fishing hole near the lake and he thought he’d stick us over when he saw two cops driving down the street. Needless to say we weren’t throwing anything out in the fucking lake, and we managed to get most of what we came to shoot, but due to the cops sitting across from us for the full three hours we were there, we opted to leave before the rest was done.

Here are a few screen grabs from some of the stuff we did. Nothing too exciting, but it’s shaping up, slowly.
