Notes:
So far the longest post-production time for anything I’ve ever done. ONETRUEFRIEND was shot over a weekend in April 2010, and was slowly edited until February 2011. There were seriously times where I felt extremely disconnected to the project and wanted to throw it all away. Obviously I couldn’t do that to the other people that put their time and effort into it as well, so it had to be finished. A rough cut had been finished being edited around November 2010, but after watching and working with it for months on end I became unable to look at it. Then one night in late January 2011, I had watched it for the first time in a while and saw what I needed to do with it. So now, here it is, about as finished as it’ll ever be. Once a bastard child I couldn’t even look at, is now something I have extreme affection for. Thanks to everyone who made this little film happen, especially Steve Cotroneo and Kyle Klein. Hopefully the last film I’ll need to have actors double as crew.

PRODUCTION DIARY

PART ONE

Justin (Time) Garcia, William Ruth and I, figuring out how to duct tape someones hand in such a way that would force them to point a gun. I think we got it.

PART TWO

One of the characters has pictures of his girlfriend on his cellphone, and some framed pictures of her as well. So my friend Jen was kind enough to be the girlfriend when we took the pictures this morning.
Kyle Klein as Edgar
Jennifer Troung as his unnamed ex-girlfriend

PART THREE

Here’s me doing my storyboarding thing. This scene is for what I’m shooting tonight. Even though this video is time lapsed, storyboarding like this is a fuckin breeze. The music is the first time I played with my Korg DS-10, about a year ago.

PART FOUR

This has been sitting there on my drive, all edited up and everything. Just got around to throwing some music on it and calling it a day. Music by Chase1204 of newgrounds.com
