A great many thanks to all of our contributors!
We just wanted to say thank you to the diverse and wonderful crowd of people that helped ease the burden of making our movie! We can say with all honesty and humility, that our shoot was the most rewarding for the cast and crew thanks in large part to the comforts and amenities that all of you helped us afford!
We both were heavily over taxed this month helping out many of our peers on their graduation films. It was very slow and infrequently that we could spare time to process the enormous amount of footage and photos we collected on our shoot. Please know that your rewards are coming, but will take some time to print and sign photos, edit the film, press some DVD's and Blu-rays, and the like. Just know we could never forget about you all and your rewards are always on our minds.
You didn't think we weren't going to practice, did you?
Here is a simple look into the world we are crafting. The surface of Earth is burning, and the only refuge is in underground bunkers.
Though not our actors, and with a few strict limitations that hamper a fully fleshed out lighting setup, you can get a feel for how our final film will look.
Don't forget to share the link to our Kickstarter page with your friends/family/coworkers!
The final days!!!
Here we are end of our run, a very explosively successful run. Thank you all for your help and your continuous sharing of our efforts.
I wish I could sit down with Casey and playfully explain where we are in the process and what we are doing in a video for you but we just do not have the time.
We have scheduled our first day of production as light as possible. We are shooting on one of the sound stages at the Los Angeles Film School, and have a easy load. Though the scene is ethereal and intense, the crew should easily swim right through it. Which is good, as Friday is our craziest day on the books~!
This Friday as many of you settle down comfortable to go work like usual, we will be dunking the cast and crew into the deep end of the pool with a demanding and relentless day of filmmaking. With nearly 30 camera set ups planned, and 4 locations to prep and light, this is no easy task even for a well seasoned team. Thankfully, we have full faith in the crew and trust in each other to perform as we have planned daily for the last few months.
I hope that you all can continue to share this project with your friends, family, and coworkers. Though we funded our goad here at Kickstarter, we are living the starving artist stereotype.
Here is a breakdown of expenses so far:
- Location - $3500 ($1500 refundable deposit)
- Generator - $900 (less with less gas usage)
- Power distribution and rental equipment - $500
- Drinks and snacks - $300
- Meals - $750
Props - $600
Wardrobe - $400
Hard drives - $450
Truck rental - $500
That's almost $6500 just off the top of my head!
Now of course I never expected to have all of your support when I set out to make this film. But your contributions and support have made this a better production for everyone involved! So please, continue to share this project so that with continued funding we can insure that the crew that has, and will, give so much of themselves is handsomely rewarded. Not only by a masterful end product, but by a safe, satisfying work place filled with good food!
