Spent most of today working on a single FX shot, which involved a fishtank, a plastic funnel and several pints of milk. Problem with this kind of FX is I’m doing all the R&D at the same time, and I seem to waste large portions of the day trudging round town looking for some innocuous item (such as a plastic funnel) that I need to make the shot look right. Anyway, I still haven’t got it right, so I’ve given up for the evening and instead turned my attention to the UK Film Council application forms I downloaded today. The forms were mercifully short and can be dropped in the post along with a copy of the rough cut as soon as I’ve got round to laying some temp music on the movie. This last job is also needed for the forthcoming test screening at the art college (date as yet undetermined).
