The Penultimate Adventures

 

So we're nearing the end of filming. Thought you'd like to know that.

  "Well it's about time!"

"Well it's about time!"

Yeah, yeah. We've been working long and hard on this movie and I'm just as relieved as you are that we only have one more weekend of shooting left.

Here's what we did the last couple weeks:
We shot the exteriors for the movie's climactic scenes (the snowfall was both brutal and glorious!)
We got a bunch of assorted set pieces.

  "Obviously."

"Obviously."

We wrapped two of our actors -- Ian Vincent, playing Derek, and Ramona Marozas, playing Madison, are now done with filming!

  Trust us, they're more enthused than they look.

Trust us, they're more enthused than they look.

And, most awesomely, we now have a rough cut of the first 30 minutes of the film!

   "Huzzah! ONWARD!"

"Huzzah! ONWARD!"

Once this next and final weekend of filming wraps, Laura and I will put our noses to the grindstone and churn out the remaining 60 minutes. In fact, we've already started. (The Brewery Sequence looks really friggin' cool, you guys!)

This last couple weeks I've actually heard from a lot of our cast, crew, and friends that their friends and coworkers are really excited for this movie. People have seen us filming downtown. They've heard me recite the logline more times than I care to admit. And now our effort is beginning to pay off.

At this time, it looks like we'll have a rough cut ready by the end of March -- that'll go out to film festivals -- and sound design, visual effects, and color grading can begin once this coming weekend's final shoot is done.

There's two final scenes we have to shoot featuring Mark and Gleahan (one in the winter, one in the spring), and I've been in talks with Kent and Don to coordinate those shoots, but for all intents and purposes we're nearly done with production!

And with that, for now--

ONWARD!
