Runaway Train

Things are really moving now. We're so close I can taste it.

William and Mia have been working so furiously on music and sound effects that they've actually buried me under them. I haven't been able to keep up with editing them and mixing them into the movie. Speaking of the music... It's going to be an amazing score. William continues to create so much new music every day I think he's going to have to stop soon or he'll have enough music for two movies. I'm sure some of these musical ideas will develop into songs on the next Octavius album. Speaking of albums, I'm determined to put together an album for this movie. The music is so good that it demands it.

Meanwhile, James created the first of the special effects where the Countess grows her fangs. It rocked -- but we couldn't help but laugh at the size of the fangs. She looked like a damn sabertooth tiger. I have a sneaking suspicion that James hasn't actually watched the whole movie yet or else he'd have known her fangs should be smaller. But the effect was realistic and flawless and cut in seamlessly into the scene. Can't wait to see it with smaller fangs.

A smaller triumph was finally getting "Blood + Kisses" listed on IMDb, the Internet Movie Database. I know from the last indie movie I produced, "Los Patriotas," that this can be a painstaking process, submitting details over and over again until they finally get it complete. It looks like this will be no different. No cast or crew yet listed, but I'll keep at it. I'm like a pit bull on things like this. I don't let go. And this movie is like the little engine that could. We're going to have to fight for everything we get.

But then, we're all fighters.

More later.
