A HIGHLY PREDICTABLE DELAY: NO-ONE IS SURPRISED

This film may never be finished, I have recently discovered.

The reasons are thus:
  1. Murray doesn't want to be in the film sometimes, and instead wants to waste a perfectly good day by sitting on his computer complaining he's bored and yet shooting down all ideas for things to do.
  2. Peter and Paul2 (Paul Brown) are constantly scheduling times to film their big scene, and the plans constantly fall apart afterwards, sometimes for perfectly legitimate reasons, sometimes out of laziness.
  3. I have a whole bunch of other stuff to be doing, especially for Uni, and what time I do have to film always seems to go out of the window thanks to Murray's world class impression of a dead or drunk sloth.
  4. The general enthusiasm for this project has been stretched very very thin, and it's sometimes a chore to actually work on it at all.

It is still in production however, and I do have a strong will to finish it. Once it is finally complete I can get on with other things at long last, but most of all I can finally sit down and see what a piece of crap it really is. The whole project was ill-conceived I think, mostly because I neglected to find other people who gave a flying fuck about it even half as much as I do, but also because it simply isn't worth the amount of time it takes up. I don't know why things turn out the way they do, but the always do don't they?...

So, I'd love to set another deadline and say "it'll be done soon", but to be honest, the film will be done when Murray undergoes a personality transplant and I get shot in the ass with adrenaline.
