is there a end in sight?

sorry guys...things have been pretty hectic the past few weeks! we're talking sun up to sun down nonstop movie making action. haha. i am sad to see everyone go. it's funny...i dreaded the long days of sweating my ass off in the delta sun, but now that it's all over, i miss those days very much so. the dynamiter has seriously been a life changing experience. the land, the people, the culture... this part of the country often gets forgotten about, but once you experience it and live it, i promise will never forget it! there is so much history here. anyway, enough about the delta...the movie was amazing! all in all, i think everything went pretty smoothly. we started losing people around the 26th. we still had a week of pick up shots and b roll footagr! people stepped up and more equiptment was rented. the final skeleton crew was the best part of the whole film! we just cruised around and shot wherever we thought looked cool. super laid back. then it was off the greenwood. WOW! thats all i have to say. v.i.p. treatment all night. wonderful dinner and wine, open bar, getting kicked out of a best western hotel... thats a whole other conversation. all i got to say is..."how small is your brain?" wow...slightly stunned! we are back in jackson now getting everything organized. post production is in full swing. hopefully we will have a rough cut in a month or so...ill keep my fingers crossed. a big thanks goes out to mike jones, art at kountry market, coopers pit stop, the gardner family, the sherriffs office, jims diner, riverside school, and all the other property owners that allowed us to invade thier lives for a day! and ofcourse the cast and crew. john alex and will...patrick and joyce...matt and jeff...tim and brian...armondo and mark...jill and ryan...sherine and mariah...mike and dale...!!!! i love all you guys!
