By the time I got off of work tonight, between the rain and the fatigue, I didn't get to editing Proxy/A Flash of White/Whatever it's gonna end up being called.
Instead I farted around. And now I'm on the computer while listening to the love theme from Dracula 3D and watching Law and Order SVU.
This draft is due Friday. Whatever am I gonna do?
Anyhow, I'm taking a mental break from that script and thinking about Orchid again. I love the set pieces of that script. I've been thinking about my idea to film it with Barbie dolls again. Kind of a "if Todd Haynes did a giallo instead of Karen Carpenter's life story." thing. Maybe a trailer. Then maybe use that to expand to a 20 minute short (Indie Go Go?).
I've discussed it with my equally twisted sister, who has an extensive Barbie collection. She's willing to make slutty Barbie clothes (and a trenchcoat?) for the cause. I'd have to build a simple 1:6 scale set that could be easily redressed. And I'd need a camera. Which I need anyway. And I'd have to learn how to do stop-motion. Which was available at one point at school but now isn't (and I'm graduating anyway).
But I really kinda wanna do this. It'd be fun. Well, at least the end result would be fun. I dunno.
Maybe it's just my mind wandering to avoid editing this other script.
What do you think?
Seriously, responses would be appreciated.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!
