We spent much of the day today working on the prop pictured above. The folder is filled with photos and official documents building an imaginary case against our imaginary character.
Note that isn’t the read Interpol logo. Alex the Intern actually put that together himself, including hand drawing the continents. It’s an impressive piece of work and while it evokes the Interpol logo, it’s different enough that to make it clear we’re not trying to forge official documents.
A lot has come together and I feel great about much of what we’ve accomplished. But we still have a ton to do. Our most recent news from the island indicates that a lot of our plans are going to have to be changed to match the new circumstances on the ground there. Please be praying for us. This isn’t really our project. And in many ways, its success or failure is out of our hands.
Very grateful to all of you who are following along with us.
Here’s the before and after of the surveillance photo I posted last night:
We got a letter in the mail today. A scary notice with a few cryptic lines of German legalese. The more we translated the more terrifying it became. I actually still don’t know what it says but hope we’ll find out tomorrow. The scary bit though is that it says someone else signed over property on our behalf…. but we can’t seem to figure out what property and have no idea who was the signatory.
I doubt it’s a forged document. Most likely just another example of a process we don’t really understand.
However, Alex the Intern and I are gearing up to forge some documents in the next couple of days. We need to create some wiretap transcripts, Interpol documents and lots of surveillance photos. Most of it will just be background detail in a few shots of our trailer. But getting the details right is fun. As is all the silly little nonsense we’ll get to hide in the documents.
If you’ve not been following our film project, this is a great time to jump in. We give a pretty good summary of the project so far, plus… Alex the Intern is hilarious.
