A Movie in the Making

Over the past few months, I have been working on a big project: co-writing a screenplay with my friend and blog follower, Rayne. The movie is loosely based on my blog post, Katie and the Word Wall. Of course, the storyline had to be adjusted (for example, Katie’s walls are not entirely white like they were in the post), but the original plot line has pretty much stayed the same. Our screenplay even has a title song written just for the film by Rayne’s dad!

Throughout the process of creating the movie’s screenplay, there were numerous obstacles that we had to face. First of all, we didn’t even know if the movie would happen because Rayne and I live on opposite sides of the U.S.- and I’m in the cast! Fortunately, we were able to pull together the money needed to buy me a plane ticket and I will be visiting her this month. There were more complications, though. The actor who was originally going to play the antagonist quit after the screenplay was finished, and before that, we couldn’t figure out how to create an audience. At one point, we even called off the entire production before realizing it was still possible a few days later.

It is the first time I have ever written a screenplay, made a movie with a cast I have never met (excluding Rayne’s brother, whom I know) and filmed in a different state. I can’t wait to be a part of all of the fun and meet the rest of the cast!

*Due to privacy, I will not be posting the movie when it is finished. 🙂
