Hmmm. Its midnight here and I'm trying to plan for what could turn into disaster. Right now I'm still two actors short, the art director has been missing for a week without a sign, and Dave has to be out of here by mid December. We were scheduled to start shooting two days ago, that got pushed back to the 24th, now that's looking naive. What to do? I'm trying to get in touch with all the actors in Panavezys (nearby city)through the local theater. If I can find some actors there, that would actually be ideal since its much closer than the capital. Scheduling should be easier.
I don't know what to do about the art director. That's a big job, important. Last I heard she was having a health problem. Can't get mad at her for that, but it would be nice to hear from her. This film is stacked with work for her, so if she's out I'm in a tight spot.
Winter has yet to close in. Today was sunny and pretty warm, an absolute impossibility for a normal Lithuanian November. I don't know what's going on. It may buy me some time, but if need be, I'll shoot in the winter, I don't care. At this point I'm in so deep, there's no turning back. Just getting down about this last minute crap.
Tomorrow I'm putting an ad in the paper for a local casting call in Kupiskis. I need lots of people for little roles, half days work. They've got to come from here. The more I think about it, the more I think I should cast the whole thing from here. Don't know if it would be possible, but it would iron all the logistics right out of the equation.
