CROSSROADER Scrapped

30 Jul

The minor being CROSSROADER. It’s based on the idea from Meredith Regan’s (Tracey McNutt) partner, and was given as an idea to TUIKIWI Productions (TKP). Since I need to make a film on my WITT video course, my small group (Me, Ryan, Gareth) will produce this film under the TKP label, which should be good.

This is what I said yesterday, but at our meeting today at WITT, I decided to scrap the project. While Gareth & Ryan wanted to continue, I outlined that it wouldn’t be possible to create the short film with the given timeframe, and it was too dark for the assignment.
So now we are working on a entirely new plot, which will take place at Welbourn Hospital. A dig at OSM I suppose, but it’ll be slightly mysterious and humorous.

It’s almost August

28 Jul

So what does this mean?

It means 9 Years.
Jamie, my little brother turns 9. It’s strange remembering to back when he was born, how glad I was to have a baby brother…..and now he’s almost double digits! Jamie is more knowledgeable then you might think; his memory is excellent and he’s a pro at setting up computers! I’ll have to go out and buy his present this week.

It means production, in two different ways.
I will be working on two different productions!

The major being the OSM sequel. it’s slowly moving along, but things are set to get faster from next week, when we begin filming scenes. Filming will take a few months as this is going to be long! Due to the length, I’ll release it in parts online. The script recently got hit hard by cast-shakeups, but things seem to be smooth now…..

It means study.
With NCEA roaring up behind me, I’ll need to concentrate more on study and revision. This will be a factor in delaying all TKP productions, including OSM!

It means license.
I must get my license before August 10. Vitally important.

Update: Storm WILL be back

26 Jul

This email sent to me from weatherwatch.co.nz:

Hey Kyle,

We’re near the centre of the storm here in Auckland…that’s why it’s gone calm. But brace yourself for a sudden strong sou’wester that will develop in the coming hours. Winds died our at Cape Reinga earlier today…and now it’s back to 161km/h but from the opposite direction. So strong winds will return again!

Died down?

26 Jul

The weather seems to have died down from how it was before, slightly disappointing for Dad but who knows what could happen.
Atmospheric pressure is at 971. Lower the pressure, worser the weather. It’s 12.3° in Takapuna at the moment.

We will make the trip back to New Plymouth tomorrow afternoon. It’ll be interesting to see the slips on the way back.

Also, goodluck to Sheree for her ball tonight! Hope it all goes well 🙂

CYCLONE IN AUCKLAND

26 Jul

It was unplanned, but me & Dad are now in North Shore preparing to feel the wrath of the cyclone about to hit Auckland.
Weather has been fierce since lunchtime, and there are yaughts crashed up against the motorway and the wind on the harbour bridge is…..well indescribable! You can feel the bridge & car moving in the force of the wind.
The rain hasn’t stopped and it’s just so fun!
Powercuts have started around North Shore. We have been around Takapuna Beach and the sea is much more furious than furious. There are heaps of people going to the beach & harbour to have a look, taking photos etc. We have photos and video footage.

For photos, go to http://www.weatherwatch.co.nz. They will have up-to-date information and photos of the storm, so check it out.

The storm is set to hit at around 8pm, and it will last for 12 hours, with the eye of the storm arriving by midnight.
