I know I took another week off from blogging, but that doesn't mean things have been slow. In fact, the opposite. This has been a very busy last few weeks. The script was just about complete, but that was just from a story perspective. After taking a long hard look at how it was shaping up, I just had the notion that the story was there, but the format needed some work. So I kind of did a little re-set and since then, I feel as though the screenplay is on a much better path.
Does that mean that we had to scrap everything and start from scratch? Not in the least. In fact, it really helped to do this. I was able to keep much of what was written, re-wrote a bunch of things to make improvements, and added parts to strengthen the story. We had so much story to work with that this was easily turning into a 4 hour movie. And since we are not looking at creating the latest installment of Lord of the Rings, the story definitely needed to be trimmed. And re-shaping things had absolutely achieved that. We are still telling Lacey's story, but now we are more focused on the greatest parts of her story. Once again, i'm not going to divulge much more than that so we don't give away anything. But for those of you who aren't familiar with the writing process, this is on par for how it's done.
I'm very familiar with the fact that some people just write a story to get it out there in a timely manner, without much care about how good the story is. And that's where a lot of movies fall short. But we're all about making sure that this movie will be something that we are all 100% happy with before any production begins. We are not just looking at cranking out "a movie", we are interested in telling the best "Lacey Story" that we can tell. I can tell you that the process we are going through is probably going to continue until we get there. We know you are all in a hurry to go to the theaters, but we still have a ways to go. Even when the story is finished, there's still a lot of work to do before we start seeing this come to life. But I am confident in saying - you won't be disappointed when that happens.
So hang in there, and just enjoy the ride with us.
Until next time...
