Entry 35: How The Hell Do We Make This Movie?

As we work through the casting process for the film, it has occurred to me that there is one question that is repeatedly asked of us when discussing the production of Contained; how in hell are we going to shoot a movie that is set on the ocean, in a city that is 150kms from the East Coast? How indeed? In a nutshell, we're going to build some pools. Big ones. The reason the pools have to be that big is mainly because of the size of our set - a mocked freight container. In our screenplay, the container is 20ft long. To be able to fit what and who we want in to that kind of a

Suddenly, a scene explodes into existence around you. You first see the corrugated walls of a freight container that traps you inside.

Entry 38: An Unexpected Path

The past two months have been an experience that I don't think anyone involved in the project could have anticipated. The good news: interest for the film in markets around the world continues to grow. The not so good news: in order to make good on that interest, the budget of the movie must grow again beyond the scope we had been working with, indeed; beyond the scope of existing agreements that had bound The Film Distillery and Veritas Entertainment together. And so, over the past two and a bit months we have been negotiating. Negotiating what the new budget would be. Negotiating how that
