7-24-08 Notes from Jay Schillinger

Thursday, July 24, 2008: Well today was just another “normal” day in the life of pre-production. “Normal” being the operative word. But in the crazy world that is film production, normal is a good word. Today, we signed our line-producer. A big step. And even bigger since he’s a Green Bay resident. Thad Roentiz. Like me, Thad lived in LA for many years but returned home to be closer to his roots and family. Thad’s a good guy and we’re all looking forward to working with him on Nephilim. Yesterday, Danny Wilson (the director), Michelle Hammond (the UPM) and I drove to Milwaukee to secure a couple locations as well as hire our Set Designer – David Krummel. David just finished working on the Johnny Depp movie “Public Enemies.” He’s a real pro and like Thad, a Wisconsin resident. Welcome aboard David! So all is moving along nicely as the pieces are falling in place as they should.

Here’s hoping tomorrow is just another “normal” day…
