Up is Down is that great moment of revelation in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End. What? You haven’t seen that film? What are you doing here, go watch it, go, go, go!!
But Up is Down is also very appropriate when it comes to making a film. Some days you are up, and the day after you can be so very down. I have decided to write about the both of them, just so you don’t get the impression that things are easy. They are not. Today is such a down day.
I had a very good talk with the casting director yesterday. He was very friendly, understood that I wasn’t that experienced yet, and generally he was just nice to talk to. He is off finding actors now, and with a little luck, we will have auditions on Saturday.
It seems simply impossible to find a producer/production manager. I have had talks with 4-5 of them now, they are all nice, they all like the script, but when it comes to it, they decide not to come on board. I can’t quite grasp what it is that goes wrong every time, but I am getting pretty desperate about it. I can’t do the film if I can’t find a producer/production manager. Simple.
I have put in another ad, have asked the people I know if they know anyone and now I just have to wait and see if something will come out of that.
I am close to giving up today, but let’s see if it also works the other way around, as in Down is Up.

Ik krijg het heen en weer van op en neer, zouden we in Nederland zeggen. Vertaal dat maar eens.
Up is Down. It’s my motto actually. And also my most favourite piece of music of all 3 POTC soundtracks.
Both work for me every time. May they do the same for you ;o)
