Snip, Snip, Cut, Cut

Back to Matthew's last night to edit some more. The majority of the living room scene with Shane, Dustin, Cali & Jim is gone. The majority of the limo scene is gone too, we left a quickie 15 seconds, maybe less. Added an additional 30 seconds scene to the photo shoot. We managed to trim down a good chunk, hoping to make the final time about 23 minutes.

We were done around midnight, I have to be at work at 7am. Somehow, I got up earlier than I needed. I think at this point my body is functioning on internal caffeine. I found a missing patch of hair in the back of my head. That tends to happen when I'm stressed out. Now I have to make an appointment with my dermatologist and she'll inject about 20 shots of cortizone which makes the hair grow back, she'll probably try to sell me some botox! Yeah, welcome to filmmaking with no $$.


About The Three Shorts

Christine Le wrote and directed the 1st story Love 10 to 1.
The first story explores the life of a 29-year-old virgin, Jenny, who desperately wants to lose her virginity before her 30th birthday. As she encounters one loser after another on dates, Jenny pines after her boss, Dustin. While at her grandmother’s retirement home, Jenny learns a powerful lesson from her grandmother about sex and the meaning of life.

Lucy Rodriguez wrote and directed Love Song.
The second story revolves around Shane, the lead singer of the L.A. rock band, Dirty Virgin. Shane has her pick of admirers but it’s her roommate Dustin she wants to be with. Shane confesses her feelings on Jackie and Jared’s show but when Dustin meets Cali, Shane’s shot at love starts to dwindle. With Dirty Virgin about to embark on a world tour, will Dustin realize that he’s the object of Shane’s affections? Will they risk their friendship to give this Love Song a chance?

Laura Somers wrote and directed Diving Lessons.
The final story picks up where Love 10 to 1 left off, but from the perspective of Jim, the guitarist of Dirty Virgin. Jim sees Jenny at a swimming pool, trying desperately to overcome her fear of diving. In fact, he finds out that she’s making a list of everything that she’s afraid of and trying to overcome them, one by one. He is instantly smitten and tries to convince her that he’s not just a rock star who ‘loves ‘em and leaves ‘em’. Can a rock star find love with a virgin?
