Today was the first cast script read of Trying Again’s EP02: The story so far.
I thought I was prepared; I’ve read and re-read the script in re-writes and edits. Today was the first time I’ve heard it out loud, with the actors.
Who are fantastic.
And I cried.
Emotional as it was it put a fire in my belly to make sure this story gets to you and to make sure this topic is talked about.
I recorded the read-through so the actors, who are all acting this remotely at home, have the audio to work with. All was fine and well until – I clicked on my recording file and it had disappeared.
I had a sinking feeling and for five minutes or so there I was, worried I’d lost it forever. Thankfully I recovered the file and all is now well with the world!
