Good morning all!
Well, in the last couple of weeks we have shaved a five and a half hour movie down to a little over two hours…Sheesh! I guess when you're covering about 120 years of a family and a man's life there's a lot to talk about. Too much great stuff to fit in but hmmmm….maybe DVD extras?
The exciting part is that next week I travel to Houston, Texas with the rough, what we call "radio cut" of the film and 41 pages of voice-over script to sit with the man himself Lyle Lovett to record "that voice" that will make the stories come alive.
I'm guessing you all don't want to hear my voice recorded on my iPhone in place?
From Houston it's back to the edit studio to lay in Lyle's voice, the music and all those wonderful archival pictures and film we have accumulated from a lot of great folks. We have one more trip to Amherst, OH to shoot some recreations and then a little more re-creation shooting in California.
Jack Penton and myself have been chatting with the film distributor Gathr Films, and there is some neat things coming to make sure everyone can see the film. April 1st, people can start looking at areas where the first screenings are set up to buy tickets!
There will also be a slick trailer for the film the first part of April too!
If you haven't gone to Gathr's site yet please do so and send links to friends and family!'
We are still shooting for premiers of the film in late May and the film's release in Mid-June,
If you are interested (or know of others, dealers, clubs, etc.) in being a "Movie Captain" or "Host" for the film please visit this link and fill out the form that will go directly to Jack Penton. He can give you more information.
