This week has been a turbulent week for The Sea Change. We have now been put back a week and everyday has thrown up a new change, which in turn has required a new plan and a new schedule.
The credit crunch has been critical. With the very real fear of a recession we have lost another of our investors. There have been talks of guerrilla tactics but the passion and the anguish to do the job properly is weighed up against the fact we’re running out of money, energy and the impending decision of how long can we hold out for versus getting the project done. The decision has been made to hold until the end of the week as with the rise of the market, slowly the interest and telephone calls are coming back in from the investors….
We’re now sorting out the battle plans for the next steps. The big inspiration and motivation has come from our talks with Rain Li the cinematographer, Emily Newbold the Costume Designer and Damian Creagh the Production designer. With the storyboarding now complete we’re looking to get up to Mull at the end of this week to scout locations together and decide on colour palettes. The storyboarding is now complete and its looking very excitingand real indeed
So we’re now in action stations. The biggest realisation this week is that this production has grown beyond our imagination and we’ve had so much support and motivation from Baff, Tanya, Marie at Soda Pictures and Rain and all our crew spurring us on saying that ‘We’ve got to get this done, we have to see this finished.” There’s no going back now.
Life does go on outside of The Sea Change though and congratulations are in order for Elizabeth’s brother who got married at the weekend….ahhh happy days!
