I got inspired by Robert Rodriguez’ awesome book Rebel Without A Crew and decided to document the process for making a feature film.
Here’s where I’m at so far:
So the movie is going to be a mockumentary about a terrible life coach.
- I’ve written a short film (with the same character), with an eye on shooting it in February.
- I’m in the outlining stage for the feature.
I’ve got a basic idea, but now I have to flesh it out so that there’s enough of a narrative to carry 90 minutes of film.
I’m also wondering how many actors I can get away with. This will be my first feature and I don’t want the number of characters to get out of control.
I also made some goofy accounts for the character of the movie. I figure it will be a good chance to try out some jokes. Plus, this will give me a almost 8 months of building out the social profiles before we start filming.

Next up is to make a Youtube channel, to make some practice videos before doing the short in a couple months. That way, I can play around with the character and see what works and what doesn’t.
