Wrapped! or The View From The Other Side
No joke, I’ve been trying to write a wrap up entry for close to a week. For some reason though, I just can’t find the words. No, scratch that. It’s not that I can’t find the words, it’s that the words don’t exist.
For the past four years, Love in the Time of Monsters has been a fixture in my life. It was this thing always in the background as a goal to aspire to, but with an unclear future. I really wanted to bring it to life, but there was always something standing in the way; always a reason to wait ‘just a few more months’ to really get it done. Then, all of a sudden, we were really doing it and in a blink of an eye it was over. I’m still reeling from the experience.
From the first day to the last, life on set was never dull. From weather woes and location limitations to scheduling realities and general miscommunications, nary a day went by that didn’t require some fleet-footed filmmaking. And honestly, in the end those scenes that needed to be tweaked (either in shot selection or scripting) became some of my favorites. For all the hardships, the results at the end of each day were always breathtaking. The whole shoot was a dream come true.
But as much as I willed and pushed to make the movie what I wanted it to be, I was only a small part of the puzzle. In the end, the ones that really made the movie happen was our incredible cast and crew. The crew pulled off the impossible on a daily basis and make it look easy. Meanwhile the cast brought the movie to the next level with amazing performances across the board. Combined they took all the wild ideas that Mike, Andy, and I had for the movie and made it a reality beyond our wildest dreams. I’ll say it, we had the greatest cast and crew in the history of ever.
At the end of the day, Love in the Time of Monsters is shaping up to be what it was always meant to be: The greatest Horror Comedy the world has ever seen. We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface to this thing so stay tuned for all the post-production excitement in the coming months. We’ll have footage, stills, and all kinds of cool stuff to show off in no time, so make sure you”re following us on the Twitter, the Facebook, and the youtube to stay on the cutting edge.
