We finished our rehearsals yesterday. This is always the best part of pre-production; you get to see your writing come alive. The past few weeks I've been managing production and making sure crew is in place. The time to do character work is always limited so when the opportunity arises I ask actors to be off book. In this film project, there's some stunt work (a first for me) and I'm learning to be open to what the actors bring to the moment. I can't possibly plan every single move with respect to an imaginary location so allowing the actors to bring life to a scene is a necessary part of the process.
