Shooting in a week! Can’t do Script Frenzy! Too busy!
Script Frenzy has taken a major back burner as we’re in heavy preproduction forThe Lake. The shoot dates are Tuesday 26 to Thursday 28 April, with a pick-up/ADR day to be confirmed. It’s been crazy trying to confirm final crew roles.

Friends of mine are involved with the 2011 Wellington Fringe Show – and I’m trying to help with promotion any way I can. Also, a few notes on Film, Dance, and an email issue.
The 2011 Wellington Fringe Festival is coming up. That means masses of awesome shows, and not enough time to see them all. Aaaargh!
I’ve been booked to film one of the shows – The Seductobot – which my friend Rose has written/directed/produced/etc. I’m also going to be helping building the sets for Choose Your Own Fringe, which my friend George is co-producing and has co-written, and for which my friend Gemma is writing music.
I’ve just written blog posts on the MASC website about 5 shows that people I know are involved in. They are…
