Still Got the Old School Touch

BAD ASS KILLERS is now ready to be scheduled. For anybody that doesn't know what this is: It is a Production Board. Every strip represents a scene. The numbers you see are the actors, (given their own number.) On the top header you see the location, whether the scene is Night or Day, Inside or Out, How long the scene is etc-- The color represents the differences in Night/Day In/Out. After you've laid all the scenes out, you take your strips and mix and match them from same locations, to consecutive days an actor is needed, to action sequences to special effects, trying to find the best possible schedule to plan your days and scenes you are going to shoot within those days.
When that is finally accomplished I will label above the strips in the gray area: DAY 1, DAY 2, until we know how many days, hours, minutes, seconds, we will need to shoot the film. From there you re-budget the film depending on time needed and then--- RED TEAM GO! BADDA BING-- WE MAKE ANOTHER FILM ON AN IMPOSSIBLE BUDGET AND SCHEDULE. Love it.
