The first draft of our company business model is sent through. WOW – I don’t understand any of it. Should I tell someone? Maybe I’ll sit on it for a few days and see if I can get some explanatory diagrams to go with it.

Besides all the make-up effects we’re doing for the project, we are also producing all the miniatures. My friends, Tony and Rowan, two of the top model makers in the country, are in today offering their support and building one of the awesome scale models for the film. I won’t say what it is but it’s inspiring to see it take shape and see another aspect of my story come to life.
This is definitely going to be added to the VIP tour when investors come through.

Casting agent Ann Fay was sent the script several weeks ago. She is a good friend of ours. She seems excited by what we are doing and is giving us her full support. We give her the VIP tour and she is overwhelmed with the amount of work we have put in already.
Immediately she contacts one of the big casting agents in the States that she has connections with and informs them of the project. The casting agent in the States would not normally discuss matters further, especially when we do not have our budget locked down and nothing to put on the table regarding money. I press Ann to see if he would at least look at my trailers and websites. He agrees to do this.
Two days later the U.S casting agent emails Ann that he is interested in staying in touch and was impressed with the material. He asks to read the script.
By the end of the week he is sending us ‘head-shots’ of some of his U.S actors – he is happy to talk to us when we have our budget together. He loved the script and saw how passionate we were about the project.
It just goes to show – you have to get your project out there and consolidate on any opportunity that makes itself available. If people don’t want to be involved – you move on. But if they see the potential and come onboard, the project continues to snowball.
