So we haven't exactly been subtle about this seeing as we've posted several behind the scenes images on Instagram and Twitter. But for the last few months we have slowly been putting together a new short film. This one is written and directed by one of our newcomers, Beth Christine. The short is called ANOTHER DAY COLDER. There are a few stills from it below.
The truth is, the short is completely finished and we're pretty happy with it. Right now we're just reviewing several options for how we're going to release it. We'll let you know if anything special is going to happen. But you will more than likely be seeing this near the end of the year.
So what else are we doing? That's a great question. This year might be looking a little bare in terms of content, but there is a lot going on behind the scenes. The biggest thing we are working towards this year is getting the company officially set up. If you didn't see the news before, Chris, Beth and I are all in one place now. Lots of things have been and will be changing very soon. We recently added David Cantu (who you might recognize from LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT or as the voice of God from BRIMSTONE TERRACE). Unfortunately, I also have to announce that, technically, we can no longer have our best Aussie pal, Jamie Zin, as a part of the group. It was probably inevitable. We've been working for a long time to make this a more local operation. But fret not! Jamie will still come on the podcast, do voices and write with us. It'll basically be the same as always. Also, he will always be the foundation for our podcast rating system, so his spirit will live on forever.
In terms of creative projects, we have said before that we are currently working on our second feature. This year we are in early production and will be getting much deeper in next year. So basically, this project is mostly my problem for now.
The other one is something a little bit different. Back in 2015, I wrote a script for a feature (or mini-series) and over the past few years, a couple people have taken a crack at producing it and have fallen short of actually doing so. So I've decided that we will producing it as a graphic novel, illustrated by Beth. She has been working on character designs and everything looks really great so far. I would have been disappointed if this script never saw the light of day, so I'm glad we are doing something with it.
We also have a couple other things that we want to try to do soon. Some of which you may see sooner than others. It all depends on how things play out.
Lastly, we come to the podcast. This month we have posted episodes on Martin Scorsese and Disney Films. Both of which turned out pretty decent. The latter features David Wayne Young. We have some other cool episodes coming up soon. Some with very cool guests! So stick around for those.
I do believe that's all I have for you today. Check back in a couple weeks for another podcast episode!
