This time last year, we were smack dab in the middle of production. I can’t believe it’s been a year! In honor of the anniversary, I went back at looked at some of the coverage we got from the local Crescent City paper, the Del Norte Triplicate.
First, we arrived a month before production started and met with the Chamber Of Commerce:
The full article can be found here.
Later the paper sponsored a coloring contest, and sent a reporter out to set with the winners:
That article can be found here.
So many great memories were made up north. Thanks to the Triplicate and everybody in Crescent City for making it all possible!
I hope you’re sitting down, because you’re about to have your brains melted by our official teaser trailer. LOOK!
Right? AUGHL! I love this teaser so much, it’s beyond words. Mike did a fantastic job putting it together and I think it does a great job of giving a taste of what’s in store.
I know we keep saying it, but it’s true, things are really heating up in LitToM land right now, so keep following this blog, our facebook, twitter, and/or our Youtube page to keep up-to-date. Big announcements are right around the corner, don’t be the last one to know!
Now that Love In The Time Of Monsters is complete, we got all dolled up and had our Cast & Crew Premiere Screening! We held it at the Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles:
The house was packed, and the response from the crowd was awesome. Everybody screamed, laughed and cheered in all the right places, and a great time was had by all! As a bonus, we had some select industry guests join us as well, and so far the word is good; Lots of interest all around, and meetings have been scheduled since the screening.
It was really great being able to share LiToM with everybody that worked so hard on it over the past year. One of the advantages of shooting and living together in a remote location is how close the cast and crew gets; it was like a family reunion. So much love in that room! It’s certainly a night I’ll never forget.
We’ve uploaded tons more pictures of the event to our official Facebook page, so you can re-live the whole evening. And while you’re there, “like” us! That way you can get up to the minute updates about the film. Big, BIG news coming up very soon, don’t miss out. (And don’t forget our twitter and youtube pages as well!)
PS-After it was all said and done, Mike, Matt and myself got together for a celebratory cigar. (Click on the image below to see video)
Hey, didja hear? The movie’s done! Like done done, for reals this time.
I know what you’re thinking: Wasn’t the movie done, like, months ago? What took so long to get it ‘done done’.
Well, I’m glad you asked! As I’m sure you can put together, there are a lot of steps in the (as I like to call it) “post-post process”. Lots of little technical things that we’ve talked about here at length, from coloring the movie and designing the sound scape of the picture to more basic things like adding in all the special effects. The end result makes this finished version of the movie completely different than the locked cut version just a few months ago.
You know what it reminds me of? Back to the Future Part 2.
You know that scene where Doc Brown rips his face off? It’s right after they arrive in 2015 and right after they hide Jennifer’s body in the trash (out of context, that makes it sound like a mobster movie), as Doc is giving Marty the low down on the future. Doc tells Marty that he went to a rejuvenation clinic and “got a whole natural overhaul. They took out some wrinkles, did hair repair, changed the blood, added a good 30-40 years to my lie. They also replaced my spleen and colon!”
That’s exactly what the post-post process is like! We took this thing that was already great, smoothed out some wrinkles, changed out the blood, and added a good 30 years to it’s life.
It is so awesome, I can’t stand it. Now to get it pushed out the door and onto some screens. The adventure is just beginning!
Look at what I picked up today?????
That’s it. It’s done! Over 2 years of work by hundreds of people boils down to that Hard Drive, folks. Amazing.
I wonder what kind of trouble I could get in with it? I kind of feel it’s like the Stanley Cup, and I should take it around with me to bars, and have people touch it.
