A little late on the blog post, I know! As you can imagine, we've been extremely busy.
On Wednesday, we released a 5-minute sneak peak of the film. So far, it's gone over pretty well. We're super proud of how it turned out.
Of course, there are a few things that we will be tweaking. Such as audio and a few visual elements. Also, the music we used is temporary. But this should give everyone a good idea of what the film will be like.
Anyway, we can't thank everyone enough for all the support we've gotten so far! An important thing o note is that the full $25,000 goal is just an ideal number. We are prepared to work with what ever we get. The campaign page has a list of what we can do at certain milestones. Even if the campaign ended right now, we would be able to use what we've gotten and it would be up to us to find a way to either fill in the rest or pull it off without the money. We're dedicated to making this film our best one yet!
Next week, we will be releasing a behind the scenes video with interviews from our lead voice cast. Look forward to that!
I'm sure after the campaign, we will have a big update talking about just how this year is going to shake out. There are lots of things to be excited about!
Recently, David Young was in town and we recorded a podcast over the film AKIRA. You can listen to that HERE. I think the episode turned out pretty good. Next time, we will be continuing our new annual tradition of The Golden Jamie Awards!
That's all for now! See ya next week!
February will be a big month for us and this project in particular. We have pretty much completed everything we need to for the fundraiser and we're extremely excited to get the ball rolling on it. Also nervous. But that's all a part of the process. We've spent the last several months really working extra hard on this (not that we weren't before then as well) and I'm feeling really good about everything we've made. I just got back from the Kansas City area again today because I was recording an interview with IX Productions where we talked about the film. That should be going up during the fundraiser. There is still so much work ahead of us and I'm excited to get around to it.
We also recently put out a podcast on the films of Mamoru Hosoda! You can listen to that HERE! We'll have another one out fairly soon on one of our favorite films, AKIRA!
That's all I've got for you right now. Talk to you again very soon!
Also, to play a bit of catch up here, we have released three new podcast episodes since our last update. Those being: "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" (featuring David Cantu), "Christmas Special of the Thrill" and "Don Hertzfeldt" (both featuring Beth Christine). The next one will be later this month on the films of Mamoru Hosada. None of us have seen any of them yet, so we're excited to check them out!
Something else that has happened recently is that our feature, LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT, was put on both Amazon Prime and Vimeo On Demand. There will be links to all of the options on the film's page, HERE. The content you get on Vimeo is pretty much the same as VHX, minus a pdf booklet. The version on Amazon is free to watch for Prime members, but it is only the film by itself, no bonus material. Maybe give that a watch. It is a New Years movie after all.
Hey everyone! We have a bit of news tonight.
First up, there will be another festival screening of ANOTHER DAY COLDER in Kansas City this upcoming January. We have plans to attend and there will be more information in the future.
Next, there have been two new podcasts on recent films over the last couple weeks. One for KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE and tonight's episode, BLADE RUNNER 2049. The next episode will be our Halloween Special and it will serve as the season finale. Following that will be a break through the month of November. After which, we will have a couple episodes in the month of December. Things will just keep getting better come 2018. I'm excited for the future of the show.
An additional note: the event we sponsored, HORRORFEST 2017, has gone nationwide thanks to Regal Cinemas. It is currently in progress. Go check out the various films being played HERE.
That's all for now. More updates at a later time.
Good news! Our new short film, ANOTHER DAY COLDER, has a release date!
The film will make it's initial premiere at the LID OFF Film Festival in Lucas, KS on Friday, October 6th. It will be a part of a collection of shorts screening the first night. You can find more information about the festival on their website.
As for it's online premiere, we will be making it public on October 25th. It will be available for free. However, we will have a package with bonus content available on VHX for $1 (or more). All funds from that will go toward our future projects.
We're hoping to maybe get a few more screenings in as well. But that's all up in the air right now. Regardless, we're excited for everything coming up in the next month.
