Final Stages of Pre-Production?

I hope so.

Things are slow to develop naturally, throw a delay in there and mid-October quickly turns to early-November. Of course then everything happens all at once. Apparently "hurry up and wait" applies to all phases of production.

I can see a light at the end of the tunnel so hopefully we'll be able to announce some stuff shortly.

First Round of Auditions complete.

So I booked 4 hours over at the Space Station for auditions then I went about seeing who I could get to show up. I used a few websites. I created a project page Sunday night and when it went live immediately started getting submissions. I didn't invite anyone to the auditions until Mon afternoon (don't ask.) At the time we had 400 submissions (and they are still coming in!) I requested 101 people attend the auditions thinking not everyone would respond and from that not everyone would show.

To make a long story short, we saw 89 of the 101 invited, roughly 88%! On a 97 degree day! In 4 hours! It was intense. Thanks to all that showed and special thanks to Jenni and Daniel. If there was a Geek Squad for auditions they'd be it and I mean that in a good way! Yup was a good day.
