Holy sh*t, we shot a movie!
And the saga of SNAKEHEAD continues…10 years ago I didn't expect this movie would be what it is today - a truly creative collaboration and a dream realized, all fueled by a community of passionate artists. Snakehead has become bigger than I ever imagined and to be in this phase is beautiful. This past year, cast, crew, and community granted us immeasurable support and belief in the craft. We experienced incredible, stressful, and epic moments in production.
But this is not the end of our story.
They say a movie is made 3 times. First, you write. Second, you shoot. And third, you edit. Each phase has its own challenges and triumphs and each is unique in its own right. Since editorial is the final part of the process, this is where execution matters most. We get 90 minutes and we need to execute an experience that is worthy of the audience's time. And so, here we are in the third and final phase. We have accumulated a tremendous amount of footage but fortunately, it is in the hands of a master editor, Greg Louie.
While the making of this movie has always felt like David vs Goliath, somehow we have executed, through principal photography, what I feel to be the caliber of a multi-million dollar film. Now, as much as I’d like to just plow through post production by myself, there are costs to deliver a film that we just can’t get around in this process.
And that is why we are here again, to ask for your support. We need to pay for sound mixing, color correction, vfx, and a whole bunch of other things that make a film look and sound great, and the more money we can raise, the easier and faster we can execute. The sooner we can do this, the sooner we can be on the road to getting this story out there. The fundamental theme of SNAKEHEAD has always been to tell the authentic story of a marginalized and overlooked community. They say it's time for diverse storytelling and under-represented narratives to rise, well, let's give them what they - and we all - want and need!
Sometimes there are projects that are just blessed from the start. Snakehead is one of these special experiences that we will always remember. We are making history, so please join us on this incredible journey!
For all those who have supported and followed us from the start, thank you. For all those newcomers who have joined us during the ride, thank you. For all the new supporters who have just discovered us, thank you. Whether you know it or not, feel it or not, and even perhaps like it or not, we are on this journey together. Let's do this!
