June Update: That's a Wrap!
Hi Monster Crew!
To catch all the latest scoop, connect with us on social media...
Word on the street is that WE HAVE WRAPPED!!! That's all folks!
We finished episode 1, "Fun in the Sun" a couple weeks ago. We finished episode 2, "Frank & The Zombie Girl" yesterday. Whew!!!
POST PRODUCTION - FULL STEAM AHEAD! So what's wrap and what's next? Well, what all this hullabaloo means is that we have successfully completed all the principle photography for both episodes. Production is complete. Now we jump into post-production, which is editing, music, and sound effects.
Here are some numbers for all you math monsters out there...
23 Frank replacement faces.
12 minutes of stop-motion animation
6 months of shooting (production)
5 months of pre-production (building everything)
3 trips to puppet hospital
1 month of post-production (fingers crossed!)
I hope all this adds up to 271 happy Kickstarter backers. Again, thank you for your patience and support.
As I mentioned in last month's update, everyone who pledged $25 and up is qualified to download the 2012 original 2012 House of Monsters short film. You should have received a link from me at the end of April to access the download. Please check your Kickstarter messages for the link. If you can't find it, please email me email@example.com and I will send it to you again. If you want the download, please do so before the end of the month, as we will be doing a major overhaul of everything with the launch of the new episodes.
Last but not least, I am excited to share a new shot. This is an establishing shot of the castle, by Warren Manser. He sculpted the castle in Z-Brush, rendered it in Keyshot and Photoshop, and built the scene in Final Cut Pro. Enjoy!
Again, I think we have about a month of post-production. Then we send it off to the sound guys for a final mix. The plan is to deliver everything next month. I am asking for your continued patience and a little breathing room, as things always take longer than ya' think. We're almost there and we are so excited to share this with you. cheers!
Happy June, see you soon.
