"The Blue Lady." It is a period piece that happens over the course of a day. The movie will be naturally lit with daylight, candles and oil lamps. The sets are simple interiors with minimal furniture. The art direction of this movie was inspired by 17th & 18th century Northern European painters and Ingmar Bergman's "Cries & Whispers."
The Blue Lady is a story is about what happened the day Master died and the relationship between two slaves in 1830 South Carolina, LaLi, Elizabeth, and The Master's wife, their mistress, Missy. This is a revisionist tale about slavery from a female point of view.
There are approximately 4 scenes that have not been created yet. I improvise scenes, rework scenes and cut scenes in much the same way I was trained as playwright. Lots of darlings must be killed to make a good story.
The target date for completion of the storyboard & script, August 31, 2014.
The target date for completion of production, October 31, 2014. Michael Lewis will be co-producer and cinematographer. Target date for release, December 31, 2014.
I estimate the final length of the movie at 62 to 65 minutes with titles and credits.
