DVD's education

Starting a new project

I'll be starting a new project soon, it is gonna be a low budget short film and the entire film will probably be set in the bay area.

Right now I have about 6~8 people who have agreed to commit, some from BW and some newcomers. I am currently doing some research on the subject, and hoping to get a rough scrīpt done soon.

If anyone is interested, let me know. Thanks.
