If there's anybody left out there, reading this, after the 5-6 week hiatus, then c'mon in, pull up a seat and make yourselves at home. 'Fraid I have nothing terribly interesting to tell you. The planned April shoot for ICFM fell through when our putative US funding fell through. This doesn't mean that the film won't happen, just that we have to go back to the drawing board and find some funding on the European side first. Given how low the dollar is at the moment, we could shoot it for very little. Which is kind of infuriating. Anyway, tomorrow I have a long meeting lined up with my UK co-producer so hopefully we will brainstorm up something interesting.
It was sad to read that Estelle Axton has died, but very entertaining to point out to my friends that this unpreposessing little housewifely figure was the founder of Stax and that without her, Isaac Hayes and his hot buttered soul wouldn't be quite the figure of world reknown that he's become.
