Now the script had finally been approved by everyone! It was time to look for possible locations. However before this could be started, another problem had suddenly arised. Our producer 'James Pain', announced he would be leaving university. We were shellshocked. Just when things were shaping up well, another drawback fell into our laps. Sadly, it was now left to me, Robert Rostant (who wrote the last blog) and Djavan Silvia, to bring to life the world of 'i'. Sadly 'James Pain' did not see through the rest of the production. He did say he would help out, but i think he felt that; he already left so there was no point in continuing the work. He wouldn't be graded etc.

The deadline was drawing nearer. We still had not finished pre - production, secured only one actress, still needed to finish storyboards, and also plan where and when; we were gonna shoot this thing. I assigned deadlines to each member of the group, as i now took the role of co-producer (which we all shared since the departure of our producer), writer and director. I was beginning to wonder if we could really do this flick in two weeks. I started searching around the London area for possible locations.

Earlier on in the wired production, i suggested filming the beginning dream sequence in Brick Lane. I've always been fond of this part of East London. It's so vibrant, unique and also has some really interesting locations. We decided that Brick Lane would be the right choice. One of the reasons for this was, at times even on a busy sunday market; some parts of this area remain eerily empty. This we felt would create a real sense of loneliness. Interestingly enough, we later found out the same location we used for this part of the film, was featured in Alfonso Cuarón's amazing movie, 'Children Of Men'.

So that was one location sorted. We applied to 'Film London' for a license to film in this area. Everything funnily enough ran smoothly. We were granted permission to film near enough instantly. However, we now faced the task of finding an office. This was not easy. Especially when companies like 'Regus', wanted to charge us up too £1,000 a day to film in their offices. The company were dead set on that price, even though i kept expressing how we are students. E.G. mother ****er's we have no money, but they would not reconsider.

Luckily enough; as extra's began to sign onto the project, i found an office in 'Canary Wharf'. I never thought i'd say this, plus you may not believe me. You Ready. Thank you Sir Cteilos (who owns easyjet). Yes my friends, there is a company owned by this dude called, 'Easyoffice'. After negotiations between myself and the manager of that branch, they agreed to allow us to film in one of their offices for £120. This was great news, now all the locations were set. It was now time to get everything into place. Eventually everything got finished. We scheduled two dates for filming, it was now time to put our vision into production.

Or was it?

    Hey guys, Robert here (not truckturner, just in his place) taking a quick break from the regular blogging, to remind you that the release of 'i' is only a few days away. But we want some people to watch it early, because as we all know, sharing is caring! But if you want to watch it early you're going to have to earn it (and have a little fun along the way)

    PUSHING BUTTONS PRODUCTIONS is offering a few lucky readers at CULT LABS FORUMS the chance to see a limited advanced screening of 'i'. For a short amount of time from today to friday evening the film will be shown online at an undisclosed randomly chosen time. To win a chance to check out our film before anyone else just reply to this post with the awnser to this open ended and strange question

    "Where is the strangest place you have ever placed wires?"

    We encourge you to go nuts with your most creative awnser (the stranger the better, write anything you like!) and we will PM the winners with the time and url of our screening
