what i want to do

The desire to change that's a big deal. I did struggle with it for some time. I hope that my "issue films" do something that I can rationalize any number of ways but the truth is that this is the work I want to do, and that's the reason I want to do it. I also have that feeling about Devotion that you have when you know a film has to be made. I am compelled to do so and in deciding I have made myself very happy. The cash for the camera is sitting here beside me.

Casting & Ideas

I am now in need of a place to hold casting sessions. I have to schedule them somewhere. I'll ask Suzie if she has any ideas. I suppose LIFT is a possible location. It has to be cheap or free. I could also try Hart House where I did the casting for INSTANT DREAD.

IDEA - The Voice Over should come from the Devotion Speech.
IDEA - The dreams tell Alice's Story & Caroline's Story
IDEA - I have to establish that Caroline and Grant loved each other and that he has a drinking problem that leads to problems in the marraige. Caroline's chanting and songs can be a way to distract Alice from her father's moods. This sequence needs to be re-written.
