Kris and I busted out some storyboards for the climax scene last night. We got a real flow going. It was fun to visualize this scene since there is a lot of tight and quick action. The goal is to be as thorough and clear as possible so that come shoot day we can fly like an eagle to the sea (and then the to editing room).
Kris and I took a trip to Pioneer Farms in the rain today. It is just 15 minutes north of UT campus. It is a living history museum with some houses from the late 1800s. One of these, the best-kept one, caught our eye. They actually have power in the house. The living room will be great for the parents' talk with Byron and Paul. And the kid's bedroom is eerie as heck. If we can lock this location with the manager, we're home free.

Mr. Douglas Bauer is hooking us up with one of his beautiful classic Fords. The car is so important to give these con men a background. We have a few options. One is a slick black that's clean as a whistle. This will communicate that these men are successful in what they do and will contrast with the rural environment. Or we can go tan, which will blend nicely with the environment and not separate the cons from it, but say they are a part of it. Lastly, we can go pale green. Not too sure what that will mean yet.
PS. Please excuse the A&M sticker on the back of the Maverick. Hook 'em.
