The past year has seen a whirlwind of change in my own life, and I find myself writing to you from Los Angeles as opposed to New York City. Forgive this long absence from kickstarter, but I wanted to wait on the next update until there was something substantial to say. Particularly regarding the release of the film.
The feature film, Solomon Grundy, which you have all been patiently awaiting (see the previous update) is on the verge of completion. Full disclosure- the film has been supported by a team of only four people for the past year. Myself, Pick Bickmore our composer, Will Whatley our sound designer, and Mike Pappa, our visual effects artist. The four of us have been squeezing in all of the post-production of Solomon Grundy in between jobs, school, and moving. It has been difficult but rewarding to be back in the proper head space for the film, and I am finally extremely confident in the final product that I will be delivering to you all in a little less than two months from now.
I appreciate your patience, and I am aware that the wait has been for some frustrating and disheartening. I promise that it has been worth it, and the final film will be of a higher caliber than that which we thought we could make at the outset. This is a fact I am very proud of.
Being the holiday season, I would like to share another film I have just completed and released online for the week. This was my final assignment and served as my senior film at SUNY Purchase. It is a film very close to me, and one that I am equally as proud of. It will only be online for two more days, so I ask you to find some time to watch the short film BRUISER. It will not disappoint.
My next update will come directly after the New Year with a final release date of the film. For day to day updates on the production, as well as screen grabs and hello's from the four of us working steadily on Grundy, tune into the Solomon Grundy Facebook Page.
Thank you all, and happy holidays. Look for Grundy right around the corner.
