The cutting room floor

Leslie reminded me of this great take from our 24-hour film that we couldn't put in the movie because Emory blew his lines and everyone cracked up. While Emory and Nell are waiting in the car outside General Murder's summer bungalow, Nell asks, "So who is this General Murder guy?" Then Emory says:

"He's my arch-nemesis."
(loooooooooong pause)
"...He's a general."

Oh man, that's funny. I also miss the bit about how we need to start a new Awesome Book because the first one was filled with the names of all the waiters from that Thai place that Emory's character likes.

The creative process, people. It's killing your darlings, day in and day out.

I LIKE MAKING MOVIES! SO SUE ME!

On a related note, we're working on the script for our next short film.

Not our next Mayday film, Paul. But there is a little something about a robot that's been in the pipe awhile.

Unless you are sarcastically noting that we haven't worked on the script in weeks, in which case, fair point.
