Up Close and Personal
This is my third crack at a new update. I did one last week and before I finished it my browser froze and I lost everything. Then, tonight I did another and accidentally hit a back key and all my text vanished. Sheesh.
Here's what's up:
1) On Wednesday, July 20th at 1pm PST (Los Angeles time) I will be interviewed on a blog radio show called Up Close and Personal. You can listen to it live through the blogradio website HERE, where I believe you can also call in and/or post in the text box. If you can't make it, you will also be able to find it in the On Demand section HERE.
2) I have been working very hard on the dedicated End of the Innocents website, which will have public pages - including the thank you page where backers names will be listed - and a private password protected backers area where I will post everything that's on the Kickstarter updates and well as lots of cool new behind-the-scenes stuff not on here. Plus I will be updating the progress of the film.
Speaking of progress, last Thursday the footage went to a post house where they are transcoding it (something you have to do when you shoot with the awesome Red camera) and syncing the sound to all the clips. I will be picking that up tomorrow morning and meeting with the editor...oops, I haven't introduced you to the editor yet. Our editor (unless he screws up and gets fired) is James Kondelik. I picked him because he had a certain undefinable energy in his reel...I'm thinking he is a bit rogue, meaning he will venture outside the box which may serve the story well, especially the opening pages that I posted here previously. James has edited some features and it didn't hurt that he sent me a text that said, "You are one of the coolest, laid back people I've met." He also laughs at my lame humor.
Here's a picture of editor James:
