the flick is
good to hear the filmings going well. I'm tossing around the idea of flying in when it first gets shown, and from the sounds of it it'll be worth serios consideation!

luck and all that...

''s only an island if you look at it from the water...'

: Nine more weeks to go.

: It's been a great start. I have zero complaints. We've assembled a fantastic crew who've been incredibly easy to work with. Jamie (our DP) is nothing short of a master. There's something to be said for the wisdom that comes with age.

: We started the morning with the last piece of Biggs' and Van Der Beek's scene. Both real gents. Both real funny. They worked alongside Diedrich Bader (he of 'Drew Carey' fame, but much revered in our household for his turn in 'Office Space'), who turned in his second incredibly funny day on the flick.

: The rest of the day we spent shooting a stunt, and then picking up some pieces with the orangutan. Good stuff.

: I know we've only been shooting for a week, but in all honesty, it's feeling like this is the funniest flick we've made yet. Mind you: it's all jokes with very little substance, but it's really, really hysterical stuff. Mewes is at the top of his game - better than he was in 'Dogma' (which I've felt was his career highlight, until recently).

: I don't know. I know I'm waxing a bit hyberolic here, but I've got a really good feeling about this one.

: And for those of you who are carping about the weird and varied casting in this flick (particularly that of Biggs and Van Der Beek), insisting we're getting away from our roots...

: Lighten up. Fuck, you don't even know what the movie's about. Trust me - all the casting makes sense.
