Well, It has been a long process filming our fun little feature film. I am contemplating a possible interview based documentary to sum it all up. Maybe that could be something to let others know that it's possible to just go out there and make something even if you don't have a lot.
Fortunately as Charlie begins the next journey of putting together an edit for the film, I am going into pre-production on a new feature. Film Fest is a comedy that follows a indie film directors troubles with the expectations and realities of bringing a feature film through the somewhat painful process of the festival premiere. We start production in the middle of this month and I am having fun in my producing role. It's a good team and things are coming together piece by piece.
The film is directed by Marshall Cook who I had the pleasure having him portray Frank Olsen in my first film Hunting Lands. It will be fun to see him get to sit in the director's chair for this one.
I think that one of the things that I learned from the filming Found You Righteous is that I would rather be able to really buy peoples time. I don't think that you need a massive crew for everything, at the same time I don't think that every project could benefit from a skeleton crew. Being able to pay to get the whole project in the can in a short and explainable time-frame is for sure a bonus.
But for now it feels great to have this project move on to the next phase. I'm sure that we will have a trailer to show soon.
