I've been SUPER busy working on pre-production for my short film LOVE GLOW. So far we have our actors locked, and most of crew locked (just need a couple extra people). We also have our locations set, some extra equipment for shooting, and ingredients for our homemade goo (like 1 gallon of Elmer's School Glue, borax, food coloring, and glow in the dark paint!)
Tomorrow will be a busy and full day with my Media Business & Law copyright presentation, running to a costume shop for some extra special effects makeup, and possibly a wig and fake facial hair... then some goo making, and taking my DP to our locations to do some test shots and figure out a shot list.

Early tonight we had a second rehearsal with our actors and also did some test shots, and I really feel like things are coming along great! I'm super excited to start filming on Wednesday! :)
As a matter of fact... I think we need to celebrate... GANGNAM STYLE (thanks Psy for your awesomeness). If you haven't seen this video yet, you should watch it! And celebrate as the days draw nearer for me to film LOVE GLOW. ;)
"Gangnam Style" by PSY
As a side note, I would like to add something about the awesome & amazingness that is viral media and the Internet...
Not even a full month ago, when I would Google search "PSY" on the Internet, intending to get to Psy's Wikipedia page... or ANY information about the South Korean entertainer... I would get nothing. Just typing "Psy" alone would get me Psychology or some other sort of Psy... I would have to type "Psy Korean" or "Psy Korean Singer" or "Psy Korean Entertainer" etc...

But NOW when I type just "Psy" alone? I get PSY, the South Korean entertainer. And I KNOW it's because of his music video GANGNAM STYLE going crazy viral in less than a month. I've been watching GANGNAM STYLE since it was first uploaded in July, and holy cow... the views just keep growing! It's really exciting~ and the song is addicting! Keep sharing it, guys! ;)
Oppan Gangnam Style!~
