So, where to begin?
Firstly, if you didn't see it a few months back, the newest teaser trailer dropped showing the updated style of the movie, a short sample of the music, the voices and a little sneak into the characters Charles, Frank and Roddy.
Why the wait? Where's The Hit Squad?
There's a dull reality to making indie movies: either release small-scale, digital download, make a couple of dollars and scrabble around trying to make the next project or hold your ground, work to get the best possible cast, release through a proper distributor, earn enough (hopefully) to fund the next project.
Right now, the production process is finished. I'm finalising the cast, aiming high for the best possible voices for the characters. There's long long waits to get a response from the named voice actors, small scale indie projects aren't top of their list and it's difficult to get your voice heard over other projects they get approached for. So that means really long waits to even get the conversations going. But things are moving closer for the final casting for The Hit Squad and hopefully the final cast will be signed and announced soon and then can move straight onto getting the film released and in front of your eyeballs.
Its a painfully boring process right now and feels like its all moving at a snails pace, but there is movement and it will all be worth it and add the finishing touches to an already awesome movie (it is, I promise!).
While there's a wait, I'm gonna post some blog posts every couple of weeks giving some deeper insights into the production process, the story, and revealing the whole behind the scenes shebang into what it takes to make an animated movie. All of these updates will come through Kickstarter and the mailing list, so make sure you keep an eye out!
Things are moving, thanks for all the messages and your patience! I'll update more very soon!
