Let’s see where things stand.
IT CAME FROM PLANET EARTH:
We (416film.com) have our pitch in at Bravo Fact to try and offset the costs of potentially shooting It Came From Planet Earth. Come on everybody, fingers crossed that we hear some good news. I think our pitch is solid but one never knows if it is what the fine folks at Bravo Fact! are looking for. We’ll find out March 16 and if it is positive news you can bet I will update the blog with a self congratulatory post. If it’s thumbs down you can bet I will be drunk in the corner commiting seppuku.
Our feature film Snuffed made it through a second round in a script contest and while we received an honourable mention we didn’t take any prizes. I blame everyone around me but myself. But it’s not about the prizes right? It’s about getting the script read…right? RIGHT?
Anyway, I think Eric and I are coming to the realization if we want to see the film as written we will have to raise at least $100,000 ourselves and shoot the film. So if you’re reading this and want to make a donation…just drop me a line! It’s worth it I tells ya…I gotta good feeling about this script.
BTW, we will also take 100 donors of $1000 each. We are not picky.
Our short, Moosejaw McKenzie, may have to wait yet another year for shooting…we want an epic wintery opening sequence and I am not sure if you are local or not, but there hasn’t been a winter yet…and as the post title indicates, it’s bloody February!
And finally, once more, Eric and I will be reconvening on Sunday Feb. 19 to record final narration for Zombie Surfing, shot way back in Fall of 2009. It’s got some funny moments but in no way, shape or form is it three years worth of laughs.
Still, while it appears that we are sitting on our laurels, I will have you know our laurels are up and about and as busy as laurels can be.
