Mountains and lodges

I am pleased to say that today I secured an important venue for filming 'The Blue Light' at the start of the summer. Cromer Hall is a gothic mansion that is integral to the historical setting of The Hound of the Baskervilles and therefore to the story of the Black Shuck that is said to roam the coastal path between Overstrand and Sheringham in Norfolk. I am to make one more phone call to secure another venue but I cant see too much of a problem with this now that I have Cromer Hall in place. I have also been fortunate enough to have 23 actors offering to play the four parts I have available for the film. This is going to be extremely hard to whittle down as they all have great experience and things to offer the project. I will then need to find a venue to audition but hopefully this shouldn't be too difficult.

This week I have also been chasing mountains in a fit of hysteria for another body of work that needs to be on its way in July. Its at the point where I have so much research I now need to home in on what it is I am trying to find out, to get at, to pick away at the scab so to speak. To my mind this is the hardest part as I wait and wait, hoping for something to come to the fore.

On another note my new teaching job is expanding. I have a number of students getting in touch, so need to keep that under control whilst all other things are flying around in the sky. I have also started work for a show in Cardiff that runs the length of the Olympics. I will be very fit by the end of it, I think that is what is expected.

Applications are moving slowly but I really must find the time to finish them, always a problem as they get pushed to one side in busy times.
