That's a Wrap!
Well folks, as some hippie probably said at some point in time, “What a long, strange trip it’s been.” As of about 4:00 p.m. on April Fool’s Day of 2012, we are happy, proud, honored, humbled and tickled pink (didn’t even have to use a thesaurus) to announce that principal photography for Story of a Sleeping Man is officially WRAPPED!!!
It’s been quite a long journey these past 8 months, but with a versatile, dedicated crew, the most hands-on, passionate and talented producers around, and a cast that makes the ensemble from 12 Angry Men look like the cast of Drive Angry, production for Story of a Sleeping Man is right on schedule!
Last Sunday saw the shooting of the “Zombie scene”, which was the last scene to be shot for the film. I realize that it’s impossible to bring up zombies without giving you all a quick look, so check out our production blog for some awesome behind-the-scenes pictures and videos.
All in all, we would like to sincerely thank everybody involved in the funding, production and execution of this film. Without your support, our love of filmmaking and desire to have it be seen would probably go unfulfilled. We’re overjoyed to have the opportunity to share our work and vision with you all!
More updates will be posted as we move through our post-production schedule and begin submitting to festivals, so be sure to keep up with us by following us on Twitter @SleepingManSIU for live updates!
For now, though, we’ll leave you with this: behind-the-scenes footage of Aaron Mager, Director of Story of a Sleeping Man, running (albeit, masculinely) from our zombie.
