Article in the Future

Director Danny Daneau - Photo by Sharon WeaverOver the Thanksgiving holiday, The Central Florida Future wrote a great article about our video podcast series, BEHIND THE ATTIC DOOR. The Future is the official school newspaper for the University of Central Florida where I graduated with an MFA degree and where I met co-writer Eric Ernst, producer Erica Harrell, cinematographer Scott Uhlfelder, and production designer Alex Eastwood. Needless to say, we have a strong connection to the university and we are proud that they continue to support our efforts.

Part 6,

We worked, and worked, and worked.

The future was unwritten and I was afraid of failing, of forgetting some detail, and of being revealed as an amateur. My alarm clock became obsolete by the second day. I was consistently waking up before 5AM each morning, and I would sit outside in the pre-dawn hours and pour over the script, shooting schedule, budget, props list, and construction blueprints to make sure I had everything accounted for.
