Clementine Takes Europe

So Remdog Millionaire and Brownsword are currently across the pond. Remy has been living it up in Spain for the past week, while Matt is casually taking a weekend trip to London, no big deal. I’m not super jealous that he’s going to the Man City vs Arsenal game or anything. Montana is a bit lost without her two other directors: It’s  a bit like two slices of the clementine are missing. Nevertheless, Heanue, Drew, Frank, Montana, and I will forge on.

Frank is dominating on the editing front, just tearing through every scene thrown his way. Montana is getting some editing done on the scene she shot yesterday with administration. Yesterday, Drew pulled through with the briefcases full of money, and Heanue has been fantastic in his new role  of “Group Hug Initiator” in times of need.

In other news, music trivs battles have been won and lost, and the shirts are finalized. Clementine will be rocking the charcoal tee with antique orange writing. So much steez.

Clementine’s just going to keep doing it thing. Roll out.

A Response From Brownsword

While Stedman refuses to mention the fact that I’m also working diligently, I’ll stay silent and work on our Editing Traffic Light. Because I’m the hero Clementine deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So Stedman’ll ignore me. Because I can take it. Because I’m not Clementine’s hero. I’m a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

Happy Birthday Remdog Millionaire

Remy’s Birthday. Due dates are in. First thursday of the NCAA tournament. First day of spring. Rebel Rave is tomorrow.

Life is good.

Ok, well life could be a little better. American University, led by Walpole own’s Matt Wolfe as assistant coach, is causing me some anxiety as they are off to strong start against my final four team Wisconsin. Spring may be officially here but mother nature is refusing to give up her hold on winter. My advice: Let it go, let it goooooooooo. And we have entered the ever-stressful crunch time here on our film as the due date looms in the distance.

Some quick updates: Mr Alan takes interest in our art direction spreadsheet. Batchy is intrigued by Montana’s filming and editing prowess. Remy doesn’t take a day off, even on her b-day, from editing. She’s killing it right now. Frank and Drew keep doing their thing. And Heanue is MIA.

With a little more than a month left, things are shaping up. The dream sequences are coming together wonderfully, and our faculty performances have been top-notch. Our editing crew is working around the clock to perfect every scene.

Update: Heanue has been located. He has found an ailing balloon and intends to nurture it back to full health.

March Madness

We’re well into the month of March here in the Clementine Corner and we are bustling and working around the clock to make Imception fantastic.  Remy, Brownsword and The Frank DeBlasio are editing completed scenes, and they are looking mighty fine if I do say so myself.  The dream sequences editing are quite dreamy themselves as well.

Our schedule is filling up very quickly as well, as we are here after school more often than not, filming and editing, with Mr. Connor’s Corner’s prestigious sign looking down on us as inspiration and motivation.  Our last montages are commencing and in the process of planning, and we are fully looking forward to working on them with the Walpole High staff.

Stedman and Brownsword are fine and dandy in the acting department, and are very good at remaining in character during class and even outside of class. Gavin and Adande are a great team both on and off screen.

As our stress levels increase, we find our way to victory and satisfaction in our current and upcoming work.

Film class is living proof that March Madness is not just about college basketball.

Fond regards,

Drew Morrier and the Clementine Crew

The midtime

With our film approaching the home stretch the clementine crew is going to have to ramp up production for the final date for our film. With most of the work done, the clementine crew is now proceeding into the 3rd and final dream. With the musical support of Hazardog our film is expected to be an “edge of the seater”. Rumor has it a fruit war is looming in the distance Rambutan has been talking alot of trash about quince.

Heanue

Be Our Guest

Yo Heanue and Montana here straight chilling at the Clementine Corner giving you a quick time blog.

Were taking a slight break while our two leads are enjoying a day in the life at Stuco to go (anywhere but Walpole High). Later this week, we predict that our production levels will increase from 113% to 115.5%. We will hopefully be filming with Mr. Hahn later this week. Heanue is getting amped for his montage on Friday. We have quite a few scenes left to film ;however, here at the Clementine Corner its about quality not quantity.

We also have a lovely guest named Becky who is bringing us some lovely food called Chipotle.

Heanue and Montana out.

Oscar the Grouch

I’m currently sitting on a train unable to access the Oscars live streaming (really ABC, i can access ESPN3 from anywhere and I can’t access ABC live????) so I’m naturally pissed. If Alan’s reading this, I’m pretty sure he’s cringing or trying really hard not to even think about what he would do in this situation. My guess: get off at the next station, sprint to a hotel, and pay whatever it takes to get a room.

Anyways, as I’m rendered completely useless here on this train, I thought I’d blog about what’s going on with our movie. Friday was a bit of a distracted day, as I spent more time trying to dunk on Baker than I did on my movie. However, the last two weeks have been extremely productive for the #ClementineFamily. Getting most (if not all) of the shots of our final three dream sequences was pivotal, and we are just now piecing together the footage from all three. If there’s one thing that I learned from the filming experience is that administration puts Alan’s acting to shame.

Anyways, I can’t tell if I want to live blog the Oscars (WHICH I’LL ONLY BE ABLE TO DO BASED ON INFORMATION VIA TWITTER) or just update on how badly Clementine is kicking all the other crews’ butt. I guess to not fill our 33 followers’ timelines, I’ll just update.
