Initial Art

This week, Joe asked me to do some initial art for the feature film we hope/plan to shoot in the spring of 2010. He had a meeting with a potential investor. Creating art for a film is hard to do when all you have is a screenplay. I asked my new friend Lay to do a line drawing for me. Joe and I banged out a synopsis together. Which, I found is also surprisingly difficult to do. And here we are. This little graphic doesn't capture the comedic vibe of the story completely/perfectly, but for now, it does the trick. It takes what mostly feels like a distant, hard-to-imagine-us-ever-really-completing dream and makes a little more real. And that's kind of exciting.
