Still waiting, but we shot a test scene the other day, to see how the lights and location would work out. Things went as well as can be expected. Extras, some crew and even an actor didn't show up (making me step in), but that's what you've got to expect when you shoot something for free. Call me crazy, but I think dark comedy works in low key light.


Ami walks into the bar and
sees Don smoking the cigar.


AMI

DON
Excuse me?

AMI

Weebalo Hat full of goop that used to be little Tommy McMahon's skull and then you tell me I can't even enjoy a simple cigar in a bar? What happen to the basic freedoms that little Tommy gave his life to protect?

AMI
Whatever.

DON
They never gave me a parade, you know?

DOOLEY
Hey Laidlaw, put out the burner or you're cut off.

DON
No problem.

He stubs the cigar out.
