Auditions Round 2

Wow- it was a long day Sunday. I auditioned people from 12:45- 6:30 PM. I think between the two days, I saw 70 actors, though I would have to sit down and do a real count. Most of them came on Sunday and it was a really steady stream of talent.
I was so pleased to have such a great turnout. So many talented actors came through that it gave me some really serious casting options. It was brutally difficult to not be able to cast all the talent that walked in the door. I only had ten roles to cast.
This is becoming more real as we go along. Now there are actual people in those actual roles. This week, I'm continuing the search for locations and beginning to put the legalities in place. I'm going to be setting up a bank account in the name of the company and getting an LLC for Inspired Films. A few years ago I was just dreaming about this and now it's happening.
So many things that were just possibilities are realities.
Much of me wants to go further but when I think of where I came from, the place that I was when I got my first computer and hatched my first business plan-- it's quite a distance.

That's so great that it's actually happening! I wish I could have auditioned, but film and I don't get along. I'm sure it's going to be great, though!

V., so is this the entirely female production that we had discussed at some point or is this a different dream that you've been fostering? (By the by, I love that you have so many dreams--and that I get to see you fulfill them!) Where are you at now in the process?

The entirely female production was a play- this is a new short film I wrote especially for my daughter, it's a ghost story
