Filming starts soon

Down to 6 days until filming starts  am I ready for filming? No. I seam to be more stressed out than normal. Hopefully in the next few days I can sort out all the behind the lens problems. The list seams to be growing instead of shrinking as normal
Money is really tight with no way to no way to barrow  or sell off anything. Hopefully we revive more donations. If not that's okay I will do what I can with what we have to work with. 
It's been an eventfully year with switching to HD and nothing really working correctly.  The editing slash computer problems, the new HD camera seams to be a lemon. My freind Michael and I did a huge amount of research on hd camera and picked the best we could find but it has fallen short of reliability. Sony x160 looks good but it has allot of problems. Card slot a is still not working. I can't get it to record to an SXS card and the camera over heats and locks up. 
The computer Mac Mini running Windows and Sony Vegas Pro seams to be distorying the sorce footage with missing frames of video and audio. Good thing I may four back up copies of all the footage or there would be no hope of finishing anything. 
Anyways. Thanks for letting me bend your ear on my blog here. I'm sure everything will work out fine and the actors and parents will have very fawnd memories of working on the project as always. That's what I really try to work hard for. Just wish It got easier to Acheve each year instead of harder. Lol

New props

So I'm fixing up my old tent trailer that I purchased last fall for $300. I have the lift system fixed and replaced so It goes up and down. I ended up buying a scrap trailer for the parts. What a night mare fixing that

Anyways now I'm replacing the floor. It was made out of the waffler board crap and now it will be all new plywood with new linoleum flooring. 

I had to take all the interior furnature out and now it's time to start putting in the new stuff. 

The stuff I do to make sure the films look as good as possible and the actors as well. Lol. Please feel free to make a donation to The Simmer Project production. Every dollar counts. Www.sterlingproductions.ca

Prepping the van for paint

So I have been sanding for a few hours. I'm hoping to get the rest of the van painted by mid week. That will give the van about three weeks for the paint to harden and hopefully the actors won't chip the paint when we are filming The Summer Project.
