Late Summer Nights! A fugue filmmaker's life!



Pre-production on a fugue film is all about late night "Pow-wows" on how to make a $1,000,000.00 film on a budget with all those zero's removed! It can be exhausting, but nothing that is genuine, pure, and magical comes easy. The Teacher's Lounge script is completed and I'm wearing the hat of Location scout, which en-tails finding a location to shoot this movie.
Thank you Tobi Sackheim for snapping those shots at THE PANTRY in downtown L.A. as we LABORED over THE LOUNGE! As you can see, they were kind enough to lets us stay a bit longer than most:) I love my life! love, jd
P.S. My earthquake predictions were as follows: I was accurate on the location, NORTH of North Hollywood! yay; but, the strength was a "4.5" whereas, I guessed "5.1" CLOSE but not cigar:) yay!

Hey Capt Mata, you know what school has a cool looking faculty room is st. gens in panorama city. you should call them and see if they will let you film there. The school as a whole is pretty nice and if you make friends with the principal or VP, you might get some time to shoot there
