And that's a....
We finished filming last Thursday night after capturing the mountain sunset/sunrise at majestic Gross Point Reservoir high above Boulder, CO. It was a heck of a day that included mountain lions and a trout farm - a majestic ending to our effort.
The majority of the cast and crew wrapped on Tuesday where smores were shared by the late-nighters.
It was the fitting end to a busy day and an incredible journey.
To say wrap was bittersweet would be an understatement. A number of people gathered together to make this film possible - and that includes you. People that I'm proud to call friends.
I've grown very close to the cast and crew with whom I worked with many days over many many hours. And now it's time for them to go on to new projects, their friends, their families, etc. But I miss them already. More than they'll probably ever know.
It's to you - and them - that I'll continue to push this project forward to make this film be the best possible film that it can be. I owe that to everyone who contributed to this project in one way or another.
That's a promise I take very seriously.
Expect updates as we reach these additional milestones:
- Picture Lock
- Sound Design
- Music Composition
- Color Correction
Lots to do - but you should know:
We have an amazing film on our hands.
