The support has been amazing so far. I am grateful. It shows the power of a shared vision. I am glad you have all been with me through this journey. Now we are seven days away from making history. Let’s fucking do this!!!
I have decided that even though the entire process will be streamed live online and even recorded, I want to reward my faithful followers of the blog by choosing 20 of you to witness the real thing and interact with me. HERE’S THE LIST
PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO NIYIAKINMOLAYAN@GMAIL.COM TO RSVP BEFORE WEDNESDAY THE 19TH. FAILURE TO DO SO AND WE WILL REPLACE YOU.
Here’s the plan for Saturday
We were able to secure a big location for the shoot thanks to Oje Onuigboje of TouchMedia Studios. The dr. Stone Set will be on the upper floor. We will have major crew members there. DOP, Gaffer, Makeup, Costume, director, BTS people, Livestreaming people. Only these people will be allowed on the upper floor.
The Lower floor will have all the selected participants, Press members and acting extras. We will connect a big TV screen to a wide angled camera covering the shoot upstairs. Everyone on the ground floor will get to watch the entire process. We will then take breaks in-between scenes to answer questions about what the participants have witnessed. I and the key crew members will do most of the QnA till the end of the shoot where all the actors too will interact with the participants.
After the shoot, we will have a wrap party complete with a cool DJ, jollof rice and lots of booze. Its our movie we can do what we like!
This coming week, there will be a series of posts preparing us for the shoot from costume design to production management to shooting dialogue scenes. i will also share my ideas and shooting script with you all. This week, stay glued to the blog like a shadow. you will learn some good filmmaking from the pros. Thats a promise.
